Gears Tactics is an upcoming Gears of War turn-based strategy game. The game is going to launch on PC first, before making its way to the consoles.

The game takes place twelve years before the original Gears of War, centered around a new squad led by Kait Diaz's father, war-hero Lt. Col. Gabriel Diaz, as he leads the mission to assassinate the Locust scientist, Ukkon, to prevent his genetically-engineered monsters from destroying the last of the human cities following the Hammer of Dawn Strikes. The squad can be customized and recruit a number of different A.I. characters. The squad also consists of former New Hope Research Facility guard, Sid Redburn, and former Stranded, Mikayla Dorn.[1]

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • It is not clear what relationship, if any, the game has with the canceled Gears of War: Tactics game.
  • In June, 2019, it was reiterated that the game was still in development, but that Gears 5 was getting the majority of development focus until September.[2]
  • In the 399th episode of IGN's "Unlocked" podcast, Rod Fergusson, the studio head of The Coalition, made it clear that the game is going to launch on the Xbox consoles at some point[3].
