80/80?

the game has had such a huge pre launch crowd it not only broke the game servers but brought down LIVE this past friday

talk about a YUGE launch. my guess is that they didn't anticipate the majority of game pass members and separate ultimate edition holders would flood the game this much. game pass has about what 6-8 million members last time reported i believe?

what other enormous launch events caused the servers to crash this bad?

WOW classic launch?
Titanfall launch?
Destiny launch?

As of this moment 15 people on my friends list have played it...before launch
Halo 5 after 4 years is 30 people.

So if I had to guess...by the time Gears 6 is out 35 million players will have played Gears 5.

*Edit 17 of my friends list Have played Forza Horizon 4 in a year.

Gears 5 will be a much bigger game.

sounds about right. xbox is around 50+ million user base and only about 7-8 million have game pass. leaves an open window for even more to join in at launch

It was bound to happen. Millions of people all logging in to play Gears 5 was bound to break it.

i was laughing at the rage some people were spouting at the coalition for it too.

almost as if they didn't expect that would happen with a major title like this

NBA 2K20 also released last Friday, of which a surprising amount of people play, so that certainly didn’t help things.

I’m just surprised they weren’t prepared for it. I played Halo 5 at launch as well and Live was mostly fine
