Bautista’s efforts to be included within the Gears of War film have been effectively documented. His aim prior to now has been to be within the upcoming Gears of War film that’s been in improvement for years now at Universal Studios. Bautista stated he’s “tried all the things” to receive a job within the film, so maybe this shall be his avenue to that aim. If not, he’ll not less than be in Gears of War in some kind.
It’s doubtless that Bautista shall be a playable character within the sport’s multiplayer mode simply as we’ve seen different characters just like the Terminator introduced for Gears 5. Many of the multiplayer characters have roles within the marketing campaign as effectively, so maybe we’ll see him there. Mixer streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins shall be streaming the marketing campaign mode tonight, so Bautista or not, we’ll see a preview of that mode then.
Gears 5 releases for the Xbox One and PC platforms on September sixth.
