When it comes to the campaign mode, all versions of Gears of War were extremely interesting and they enjoyed high popularity among gamers.

Gears 5 is no exception, but the campaign ending raised some eyebrows. At the very end, you can save either JD or Del. So, the campaign can have two endings.

It is interesting to see what will happen in Gears 6. Developers might create two campaigns, one for each ending. Also, they might diminish the importance of these characters in the next campaign.

Gears 5 players are not happy with the campaign ending

Even if Gears 5 gives players a choice, quite a few people are upset with the campaign ending. They think this is a complication of the storyline that doesn’t add anything of value to the plot.

Also, some players said that this is a major downside of the game. According to them, they don’t have to choose between one or the other. This is the authors’ job.

Maybe the creators didn’t come to an agreement on which character should die, so they let the players decide.

However, the campaign ending might not be that important in Gears 6. Still, for the sake of the storyline, it should have some meaning. Otherwise, the authors would not have put this at the end of the campaign.

We don’t know what Gears 6 will have in store for us. So, it remains to be seen how the storyline will develop.
