According to Microsoft, this is “planned to be a permanent move” for the future of Social Quickplay, with the first few months considered a trial period in order to gain player feedback.

Gears of War 4 Core and Competitive will remain platform independent, as it will ensure Ranked experiences are as closely matched and competitive as possible.

“Due to the major popularity of Social Quickplay on Windows 10, we will be looking at introducing new Core and Competitive solutions for Windows 10 players in the future,” said the company, “to provide more focused offerings to experience the more competitive ranked play of Gears of War 4.”

This was all made possible due to a cross-play Test Weekend late last year, which included Windows 10 and Xbox One users testing out Versus Multiplayer. And, its seems everything worked out, obviously.
