That Gears 5 was a highly anticipated game by the community there were very few doubts, and the positive votes in the reviews confirmed the goodness of the last Microsoft exclusive.
But in addition to the judgment of the critics and the public, there are other factors that can make the success of the game better understood, such as the news of the past few hours that has something historical. After over a year of absolute dominance, in fact, Gears 5 managed to undermine from the top of the ranking of the most played titles on Xbox, a certain Fortnite.
The Battle Royale of Epic Games, which this morning was updated with the 10.30 version of Fortnite, was in the lead continuously since the summer of 2018. Probably finished the effect of the first days of Gears 5 will return, but it is certainly indexed how well Microsoft has worked.
Also because the data shows that the majority of users are using the Ultimate Edition, ie the one used by those who made the preorder or by the owners of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, so it is possible to get an idea of how much the number of these subscriptions are constantly growing.
The excellent result therefore for Microsoft and its Gears 5. Are you also among those who are stripping it?
