Gears 5 will face Xbox and PC players with no possibility of disabling cross-play after the arrival of Operation 7.
The Coalition decides to unify the Gears 5 communities. In this way, the cross-play option will be removed from the settings menu as of the arrival of Operation 7. Both Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC users will play with each other since then.

As the study explains on its official website, currently 40% of Gears 5 players have disabled cross-play, which represents “a significant impact on the time of the search for departure for both PC and console players. ”.
To even the tables, the content update will allow Xbox One models to adjust the field of view (FOV). “With the field of view patch on the way, being able to connect your mouse and keyboard to your Xbox, in addition to the frame rate and input lag reduction on the new Xbox consoles, we feel we have reached a point where parity between Xbox and PC is almost identical. We are confident enough to make this change for the future of Gears 5, “the study explains.
This update will be available for download starting next May 18. As is usual with the arrival of a new Operation, the seventh content frame will add a string of new elements for multiplayer modes. It highlights the inclusion of Hana Cole and Ukkon as playable characters, as well as Ephyra, a map that will take us to the ruins of a CGO city.
