How come the name was changed to Gears 5 and not Gears of War 5? Is it starting a whole new Saga or something? What was the name for the name change? I wasnt sure if it was because they wanted to branch the series out into different directions, Gears numbered series, Gears Tactics, Gears (???) or what the reason was.
It was mentioned in a interview:
Unlike previous games in the Gears of War series, the game is simply titled Gears 5 (without "of War" included in the title). Xbox marketing boss Aaron Greenberg explained that the new title was "cleaner" and that it was a natural change because most people had been ignoring "of War" for years.
