As we are in 2016 and eagerly waiting for announcements regarding Gears of War 4, what do we know about it as of yet? We know there will be a Gears of War 4 Beta which will release to the general public at Spring (No official release date has been confirmed). Some of you may know from gaming social media sites, the release date of Gears of War 4 has been moved to Fall 2016 instead of Holiday 2016, meaning it could release between September to November (Again no official date has been confirmed).

On January 10th 2016, The ESL Season 1 Pro League Grand Finals was streamed live by The Coalition, which featured the 4 top teams of ESL Gears eSports: Denial, EnvyUs, Vexx Gaming and Onslaught. There was also a Developers Panel featuring Studio Head of The Coalition Rod Fergusson (@GearsViking) and MP Lead Designer Ryan Cleven (@nodezero).
If you would like to watch the replay of the broadcast, you can do so by clicking the image of the Gears eSports image below (Skip to 4:10:45 for the start of the Developers Panel).
This seemed like a potential time to receive Gears of War 4 announcements. Needless to say, there was no confirmation of any announcements, leading to mean we will have to wait longer.
Most of you might not be aware on this but on January 27th 2016, it is the second anniversary since Microsoft has acquired the rights to Gears of War from Epic Games. It’s another possible date we may receive Gears of War 4 announcements from The Coalition. This isn’t certain so please keep your eyes peeled on the official Gears of War Twitter, Facebook, Reddit etc etc for all the latest Gears of War information to follow.
