The Gears of War competitive calendar for the 2019-2020 season is split into four quarters: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. Each quarter ends with a major international event, culminating in the World Championship in July 2020.

The Fall quarter came to a close recently, with Team Reciprocity coming from behind to win the San Diego Major and a third of the tournament’s $240,000 (£182,467.87) prize pool.

The Mexico City Major will mark the end of the Winter quarter and will be held at the World Trade Center Mexico City on March 6-8th. The Texas Major will take place at the Esports Stadium Arlington on May 8-10th – rounding off the Spring Quarter.

More information is set to follow on the esports section of the Gears of War website.

Esports Insider says: With all three Majors this season set to take place in North America, the focus market for Gears of War developer The Coalition is clear. The destination of the Texas Major also provides another validation for the creation of the Esports Stadium Arlington, which cost a hefty $10 million (£7.89m) to build.
