The Xbox One version of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will arrive on August 25th, 2015. We’ve known for a while that the game would also come to PC, but no one was able to confirm exactly when, with many assuming it would hit on the same day as the Xbox One version.
However, that unfortunately doesn’t seem to be the case. Xbox head Phil Spencer has confirmed that the game will be exclusive to the Xbox One for some amount of time, with the PC version hitting later on. “Gears on Win10 is later than Xbox One version.”
Just how long this window of exclusivity will last is anyone’s guess at this point. Unfortunately not much more was revealed in the tweet, and the game isn’t currently listed on any PC storefronts. Microsoft has remained relatively quiet on the PC version of the game, until now.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is an HD remastering of the original Xbox 360 classic. It will feature enhanced visuals, as well as five additional levels that were absent from the original game. Players will also be able to participate in the Gears of War 4 beta, once it becomes available in 2016.
Gears of War: Ultimate Edition hits Xbox One on August 25th.
