Gears Pop! is a mobile Gears of War launching 2019

Today Xbox is hosting its E3 2018 press briefing from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and we got the reveal of the new chapter of the Gears of War franchise, titled Gears 5.

"Gears Pop" is coming to Android and iPhone sometime in 2019. The game is now in development by The Coalition and was announced with a story-centric reveal trailer. The following trailer was surprisingly character-focused and combat-light, setting up a story focused on Kait, one of the squadmates introduced in Gears of War 4. Studio head Rod Fergusson talked about the evolution of the "Gears of War" franchise at the event.

While admittedly adorable, the news of "Gears Pop" was very much over-shadowed by the announcement of the highly anticipated "Gears of War 5" and "Gears of Wars: Tactics" for PC.

Microsoft has also confirmed that Gears 5 will feature local and online co-op modes, though you can of course play the game solo if you prefer.

Gears of War 5 is now in development for Xbox One and is releasing in 2019. A release date was not announced.
