Microsoft has filed a new Gears of War trademark leading fans of the series to believe a remastered collection is on the way.
Gears of War fans have long been waiting for a remastered collection of the original games.
The Microsoft-owned IP was one of the original franchises that helped skyrocket the popularity of the Xbox 360 in the mid-2000s.
Now, dedicated Gears fans believe a move from Microsoft could signal the return of the original games.
Gears of War trademark could be remastered collection
Xbox fans spotted a new Microsoft trademark filed on September 20 for “Gears of War.”
The re-upping of the trademark for the Gears franchise signaled to some that Microsoft could be prepping a remastered collection. Rumors had circulated earlier in 2022 that a collection could be coming, and now some are speculating this could mean that becomes a reality.
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.
