Microsoft seems to be going all out on Gears 5 branded merchandise right now. As well as the Limited Edition Gears 5 Xbox One X and controller, there’s a themed headset coming from Razer and Seagate’s Game Drive for Xbox Gears 5 Special Edition. Well, thanks to a listing on Amazon we now have an idea when Seagate’s hard drive will be released. If the listing is to be believed then you can get your hands on it on 20th August. We’re inclined to believe that this date is legitimate as it’s also the date that the console and controller are released.
One interesting aspect of this listing is that only the 2TB version seems to be present. The original press release from Seagate talked about both a 2TB and 5TB version. Of course, it may just be that Amazon has simply chosen not to carry the larger drive. However, on the Seagate website, it only shows 2TB as an option, so it probably has chosen not to go with a 5TB option after all. In our opinion a 2TB external drive is more than enough for the average gamer as it is. You would only need a 5TB external drive if you insist on having every game in your library installed.
