Something big is about to go down this week as The Coalition has teased the next big reveal of Gears of War 4. The news was teased on Twitter by the developing studio.

Gears of War 4 was last seen at E3 2015 where a gameplay trailer was shown during Microsoft’s press conference. The next major reveal is only a few days away now. Due to the choice of words in the Tweet we are assuming it is a new gameplay trailer but it could very well be something else, like a PC version? A man can dream.
Gears of War 4 release date has already been announced. We know that the game is coming out on Xbox One this October. But there are rumors of a PC version and not without merit.
Microsoft is pushing for a unified platform with Xbox and Windows 10 PC. Recently, Phil Spencer said that they will release Xbox games on PC only if a certain game feels like the right fit for the platform. And we can safely say that Gears of War series does fit nicely on PC.
Microsoft released Gears of War Ultimate Edition for Windows 10 which some take as a hint of things to come. But will Microsoft actually go through with something this major? Hardcore fans would surely be pissed if that ever happens.
For now, it is a Xbox One exclusive and soon players will get to try it out in a closed beta environment.
Gears of War 4 beta will kick-off on April 18 and those who have a copy of Gears of War Ultimate Edition will have guaranteed access. Meanwhile, an open beta for Xbox One players will start on April 25.
