Gears Of War Remake & Killer Instinct Coming Soon-ish

Make a start on your new calendar

Remember when Windows 10 was coming up and Microsoft were all excited about PC gaming again and announced they were bringing the Gears of War remake and new Killer Instinct to PC? And how they didn't have much to say about the ports then in June, and haven't had much more to say about them since? Oh Ian Microsoft, you and your fickle love! Love us, Ian. Why don't you love us? Ian, please. But wait! One of Ian's mates has now said we should probably expect them early-ish in 2016.

Of course, Ian couldn't tell us this straight-up. Heaven forbid he let us know what he's thinking. No, no, let's wonder and dream and keep our ears to the ground for gossip then, heck, just ask your mates. Sure Ian, no worries.

Over the weekend on the ole Twiteroos, someone asked Ian's pal (and Xbox head honch) Phil Spencer when we might see the two games. His response: "Haven't announced dates yet but won't be too far into 2016."

If you've got a fresh new 2016 calendar already and are starting to plan your year, er, as a placeholder maybe soak the first three or four months in blood? I'm relieved to have musclesoldier news to to tell my nan at Christmas dinner (Marcus Fenix is "such a nice boy", she says).
