Update: June 9, 2019 5:11 ET – You can now pre-register for Gears Pop now in the Google Play Store. You can also see a new trailer, shown above, which plays a bit for this cartoon-like Gears of War game, mixed with the Funko Pop action characters.
Original story: June 11, 2018 – Microsoft made several match notices on Sunday at its E3 2018 press release in Los Angeles, but one of the most surprising was the unveiling of the first mobile game in the Gears of War slide shooter franchise. Instead of a dark and eager game, however, this title seems to be good.
Gears Pop !, released in 2019 for Android and iOS, will show Gears characters like Marcus Fenix and others while talking to Funko Pop figures. Yes, the extremely popular and collectable Funko Pop toy franchise departs in games. A non-gamma teaser trailer suggests that Gears Pop! will not target the hardcore game people.
No other details about Gears Pop! has been unveiled, otherwise it will be developed by the British Mediatone, who previously created another game based on a Microsoft property, Fable Fortune. Gears of War fans looking for a more hardcore experience have not been forgotten. Microsoft also announced Gears Tactics, a spin-off game for Windows computers and Gears 5, the next big game in the franchise, for Xbox One and Windows 10, in 2019.
