Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will be a little late coming to PC

Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will be coming to Xbox One before heading to PC.

PC owners may have to wait a little longer to get their hands on Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Xbox head Phil Spencer revealed in a recent tweet.

“Gears on Windows 10 is later than the Xbox One version”, explained Spencer.

We aren’t exactly sure when the PC version will be coming, as no official release date has been confirmed. The Xbox one release is set for August 25, so expect it to be some time after that.

The PC edition of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition was first announced at E3 2015. The remaster will feature upgraded textures, revamped multiplayer and DirectX 12 support.

It will also run at 1080p and 60fps with additional 4K support if your PC can handle it. The game will be over 44GB in size on PC and Xbox One, so make sure you have enough space cleared up before next month.

This is the first in a series of cross-platform releases planned for Xbox One and Windows 10. Microsoft have also announced that Fable Legends and Killer Instinct will be coming to PC in the future, complete with cross-platform multiplayer and improved visual fidelity.

Gears of War 4 was revealed at E3 2015 with a surprise gameplay demo, the long-awaited sequel has been given a Winter 2016 release window and as far as we know will only be coming to Xbox One.

The Xbox One version of Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is coming August 25.
