Gears of War 4 dev: 'More spoilers may appear in the coming days'

The developer says fans should be careful if they want to "keep things pure."

With the release of Gears of War 4 coming up soon, developer The Coalition has now spoken up to warn fans that spoilers for the long-awaited shooter could pop up soon.

Community director Adam Fletcher wrote on Twitter that fans should "stay vigilante" (presumably meaning vigilant) as it relates to spoilers. Fletcher didn't say anything about the source of these spoilers, however.

Given that Gears of War 4 has gone gold, it might be that copies of the Xbox One and PC shooter are on their way to retailers. If that's the case, people might get a copy early and share videos and impressions online, as is the case with basically every major game.

Or maybe The Coalition itself plans to talk more about the game's story and characters; some fans might like that, others may want to go into the game with fresh eyes. In our reporting on Gears of War 4 heading up to launch, we'll be sure to mention when spoilers, or potential spoilers, are referenced.

In other news about Gears of War 4, the game is available now to preload on Xbox One, though PC players have to wait.

Gears of War 4 is scheduled to come out on October 11 for Xbox One and PC. It's an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so you can buy it digitally on Xbox One and get a copy of the game for Windows 10 PC free or vice versa. If you pay $100 for the Ultimate Edition, you can start playing four days early, beginning October 7.
