There have been so many rumors recently about a new Gears of War compilation game, but there hasn’t been any concrete evidence. Recently, a Brazilian rating body, Classificação Indicativa, has listed a game called Gears of War: Ultimate Edition. The release date for the game is set for 2015.
A rating body is a company like PEGI or ESRB that rates the age rating of a game, so unlike a retailer listing, which could easily have been placed by mistake, it’s very likely that the listing on the rating body was not false. The listing for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition on Classificação Indicativa suggests that a game of that exact name has been sent off for an age rating.
Interestingly, the same rating body has listed another game called Dishonored Definitive Edition, despite there being very little details about such a game ever being released.
Chances are, even if the details on the Brazilian rating body are wrong, there’s no doubt that some kind of Gears of War experience is coming to the Xbox One, and it’s coming soon. We’ve heard so much about it recently that it would just seem downright bizarre to not have a Gears of War re-master now.
Everything so far is just rumors and whisperings though, so until we hear something official we shouldn’t get our hopes up. Hopefully we’ll hear something more official at an upcoming gaming expo later this year, such as E3.
