Xbox Boss Phil Spencer has confirmed that Gears of War Ultimate Edition won’t launch for PC until after its release on Xbox One next month.
Taking to Twitter, the Microsoft executive noted that the Windows 10 version isn’t set for a simultaneous launch with the console version, and without confirming a potential release date, PC owners will unfortunately have to wait until the publisher is ready to share more information.
