One Reddit user said of the filing, “A Gears of War collection wouldn’t surprise me. Getting a version of 2 and 3 that I can play on the PC would be very sick. So mostly a wish, but still.”

Another added, “I would actually love a Halo MCC-esque remake of the first 3 Gears games under the Unreal 5 engine first the Series S/X. I would love to see what the Coalition could do with new models and such. Especially Gears of War 3.”

Despite the high demand for a remastered collection, Microsoft hasn’t announced any concrete plans just yet.

For Gears fans’ sake, let’s hope Microsoft has something in store for the very patient fandom.
