Back in January, the folks over at XboxEra mentioned that another Xbox franchise could be getting the Master Chief Collection treatment in 2022 or 2023, and their latest podcast appears to suggest it's for the Gears of War series.
Speaking on the podcast this week, journalist Shpeshal_Nick stated that he was "of the belief that [a collection] is coming this year," and teased that “if you go from November 2021 to November 2022 and you look at Microsoft’s big game output, it could wind up being Halo, Gears, Forza".
"There was a rumour a while back where I mentioned that there is another Microsoft franchise that's getting the Master Chief Collection type treatment. I am of the belief that is coming this year. Maybe that'll be their E3 announcement."
"Everyone's guessed it. I'm not going to say it, but everyone's guessed it. What makes me laugh though, is that if you go from November 2021 to November 2022 and you look at Microsoft's big output, it could wind up being Halo, Gears, Forza."
There have been calls for something like a 'Marcus Fenix Collection' on Xbox before, and The Coalition got people talking earlier this year after posting a New Year message featuring some highly detailed Gears of War 2 artwork.
Whether that was a tease remains to be seen, but if this rumour is to be believed, we could be seeing the announcement of this collection as soon as next month at the Xbox Games Showcase. Let's hope it comes to fruition!
