Gears Of War 4 is the much-anticipated sequel to the Gears Of War franchise which is just two weeks away from launch. However, during its early stages of development, Gears Of War 4 was not a sequel but was almost a prequel, according to The Coalition.

Speaking with Stevivor, The Coalition’s Chuck Osieja revealed that Gears Of War 4 was almost a prequel to the original trilogy of Gears Of War.

We actually sat around, when Rod [Fergusson, formerly of Gears’ original developer, Epic Games] first joined, we sat around for a few days and talked about what we could do. Do you go back and tell – well, there’s a ton of lore in the Gears’ world.

He further revealed that there were a lot of ideas for the prequel but these ideas did not fit with the game’s core mechanics or lore. He also added that the problem with making Gears Of War 4 a prequel was that going back was not the right direction for the series.

Split screen functionality has been one of the best-known features for Gears Of War franchise, and it will not be different for Gears of War 4, as the game features it for Xbox One. Also, the developers have confirmed that PC version of Gears Of War 4 will also feature the Split Screen functionality.

While there is a lot of talk of HDR being supported for current gen games, and Gears Of War 4 will also support it on Xbox One S, however, the PC version of the game will not support HDR.

Gears Of War 4 is scheduled to launch on October 11, 2016 exclusively for PC and Xbox One.
