Gears 5 launch in China has been 'suspended' on Steam

 

Gears 5 is set to come out on September 9, but it appears that gamers in China may have to wait awhile to get their hands on it. A message posted on Steam by community support manager TC Octus says that an unspecified problem has forced the developer to suspend all sales and the game's launch in that country. "There is a specific issue with the Gears 5 release in China preventing people from accessing the complete game. Unfortunately, this issue means we have to suspend future sales and pre-orders, as well as the game’s release, in China at this time," it says. "We are investigating and will provide an update once we have more information. We appreciate your understanding. " body . hawk-widget{--trd-blue:#2f6e91;width:100%;letter-spacing:normal;}.

TC Octus told Twitter followers numerous times that issues with matchmaking and missing content are the result of overloaded servers, which developers are getting straightened out.
