My copy says Gears of War 4, so I guess they're going full Popular Mechanics with the naming.
Revealed =/= released. Here’s a photo from the E3 they announced it


If there’s any reason to justify the name it’s that a lot of us in the gears community do just call the games simply gears as an abbreviation. And honestly rolls off the tongue better imo.

That cover is pretty meh. For some reason it makes me think of B tier adventure games, but not in a good way.

No way that's an official cover. Probably just placeholder, if not completely fake. September would be awesome and would mean a beta test around e3, hopefully. And yes, Gears 5 is the name. Rod said that they are essentially rebranding the franchise to just "Gears". He said they was going to make the change when Gears 4 released, but felt they hadn't earned the right in the fans eyes to make big changes, which is also why Gears 4 was a very 'safe' sequel. This will be TC coming out party with the vision they have moving forward with Gears.

Nothing about that cover makes sense. Where is the light source, as shadows fall into all kinds of directions? Why does the lead character have a midget necklace? What is that red stuff? Why does the cover and logo look like the NHL’95 logo, like somebody ice skated on it?

Cover like this shows you can still have badass female character in cover without making them damn ugly.

Maybe its to avoid confusion between God Of War.

Your post is barely comprehensible but im going to give it a shot...Im not up to date on my Gears lore and whose who so i have no idea who the lead should be. People liked Marcus Pheonix so if it aint broke dont fix it would be my motto. If the coalition or xbox think they are going to drastically expand the potential customer base because of adding a waymen, well, IDK about that,
Just FYI. Being the mirror image of a sjw is just as bad as being a sjw. Stop looking for butthurts ;)

Also the cover looks so fake!
Maybe it’s just a placeholder?

It looks like a place holder, yes. I guess the final one will look better, hopefully.

Kate looks sexy in game. Don't judge her based on shitty box art. She had jiggle physics in Gears 4 lol.

This is Gears not Tlou 2 which is designed to please SJW crowd

Not what I was getting at.. just pointing out that just because there is a woman, or like the poster I responded to would say wymaaan, on the cover, does not mean they are pandering to the sjw crowd.. if you start seeing ghost everywhere, what makes you better than the group who sees Vampires everywhere? :p

Hoping Gears 5 is better than Gears 4. It was good but didn't live up to the first three. The new characters they introduced were bland as fuck.

not to mention that Kate has locust blood in her, she's not just some woman.
 
I am optimistic about the new game. I enjoyed 4
The first quarter was pretty bland, the characters didn't really have any personality yet and the robot enemies were boring and basically not fun to fight.
The game did pick up later on and had some fun and challenging sections, hopefully five follows that vein with more swarm enemy types.
Split screen coop is something that I wish more developers would actually take advantage of, especially on pc

For some reason, I thought this game had already come out.
