We don’t normally report on rumours here at Xbox Enthusiast. However, this rumour seems solid becuase of the photographic evidence. It seems as though there will be a Gears 5 branded controller for Xbox One. This is the the sort of rumour which you could probably put money on anyway as there is clearly an audience for it. With the following pictures, though, we have to say that this seems a certainty. You can check out the images below –
It’s been a while since we have had a properly branded controller. While you can preorder the Fortnite Xbox One controller, it’s only really a purple controller. The last properly branded controller I can think of was the gorgeous Sea of Thieves one. With the Gears of War franchise being a central pillar of the Xbox ecosystem, it makes sense to create peripherals to appease the fanbase. This new controller would also contrast quite nicely with the Gears of War 4 Crimson Omen Limited Edition controller.
For those who aren’t familiar with Gears 5 you can check out the trailer below –
