It appears Microsoft is giving Gears fans a reason to buy a new Xbox One controller once Gears 5 comes out.
Gears 5 is coming out this September and it seems that a controller for the game along with it. Users on Twitter are posting leaked pictures of the new controller. The controller is grey and white with the C.O.G. logo on the front. There is also lining on the controller replicating what appears to be armor. The buttons on the front of the controller besides the d-pad feature the color grey while the d-pad is white. The bumpers are a darker grey than the front and the triggers are blue.
Fans of the Gears of War franchise are sure to be happy about this leak, which is likely to be true. Microsoft normally releases themed controllers for their upcoming titles. Seas of Thieves is the most recent game to get this treatment. It should be noted that this upcoming Gears 5 controller is not an Elite controller. Gears of War 4 received a themed Elite controller back during its launch year, but the one for Gears 5 is apparently just a regular controller.
