Microsoft announces Gears of War 5, Gears Tactics and Gears Pop

Cogs in a machine.

Microsoft has announced three new Gears of War games: Gears of War 5, Gears Tactics and Gears Pop.

Gears of War 5 is the next mainline game in the series and is in development at The Coalition. Microsoft unveiled the game with a cutscene-heavy video that showed Marcus Fenix and crew embark on a new adventure. It's due out in 2019.

Gears Tactics, on the other hand, is a turn-based strategy game in the XCOM style. It's in development at UK studio Splash Damage.

And finally, Gears Pop is some kind of FunkoPop-affiliated game for mobile devices.
