Currently looking at the Steam wishlist where Halo MCC is the second most demanded game on the list. This series will likely get a whole new life on PC, and will probably be more popular than it was on console. You know what isn't in demand? Gears 5... it's sitting at like #83 despite being two months away. Is that a testament to how poorly Microsoft is marketing this game, or is the game dying as one of Microsoft's tentpoles?
Oh well, not to worry too much. MS can always lean on The Bard's Tale or Wasteland 3 to pick up the slack of AAA franchises. LOL! But seriously though, as someone who likes Gears, this is kind of distressing news. Ever since yanking the IP away from Epic, the sales have been on a sharp decline. Moves like Game Pass will likely kill what sales showing it could have had dead.
Maybe it's the PC crowd not caring for this game at all even with the heavy emphasis on multiplayer. But you'd think it could at least make a better showing than Tank Mechanic Simulator.
