Two big games from Microsoft are coming out in 2019, Gears 5 and Halo Reach for PC. And there’s a chance there will be a crossover, if a recent leak is to be believed. The leak is of an ad that apparently shows a Halo Reach character pack for Gears 5.
The Xbox One ad has seemingly revealed a Halo Reach character pack for Gears 5. The ad says that this skin pack might be included in the Ultimate Edition of the latest The Coalition game releasing on September 10, 2019.
Fans of Halo would probably appreciate this surprise. Particularly those who are looking forward to Halo Reach to release on PC as the first part of the bigger The Master Chief Collection and to be included in the MCC on the console as well.
More details might be revealed today at Gamescom which will start in some time.

Other things that will be offered by Microsoft include Xbox hosting an off-site Open Doors event at a theater up the road. It is free to enter and will give visitors the chance to participate in tournaments, view panel discussions and much more.
The biggest games we expect to see from Xbox include Gears 5, Battletoads, Minecraft Dungeons and Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition. The cloud gaming platform Project xCloud will also be available for show-goers to try out.
A whole bunch of third-party games will also be playable on the Xbox booth, including Borderlands 3, Doom Eternal and Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.
