Gears 5 claims biggest launch of XGS this generation
New first party action game off to a record start with help of Xbox Game Pass
Microsoft has announced that Gears 5 set new records for Xbox Game Pass with the biggest launch week of any Xbox Game Studios title this generation.
Over three million fans played the game during launch weekend, and the performance easily doubled the first week’s debut of Gears of War 4. Gears 5 is the most-played Xbox Game Studios title in its first week since 2012’s Halo 4. First week performance includes the four-day early access period beginning Friday, September 6, which was exclusive to Gears 5 Ultimate Edition and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.
On the PC, Gears 5 has nearly tripled the performance of its predecessor, becoming the biggest-ever launch for Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Game Studios’ best-ever debut on Steam.
Gears 5 is out now for Xbox One and PC.
