According to the blog post, Gears 5 saw three million players in its opening weekend and has set a new record for Xbox Games Pass with the "biggest launch week of any Xbox Game Studios title this generation". When comparing Gears of War 4 to Gears 5, the performance has "easily doubled" in the first week of launch and now Gears 5 has become the "most-played Xbox Game Studios title in its first week since 2012's Halo 4."

On PC, Gears 5 has tripled the performance of its predecessor, which has now bestowed the title on Gears 5 as the "biggest-ever launch for Xbox Game Pass for PC" and also Xbox Game Studios' "best-ever debut on Steam".

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
