So they give you the option of saving either Del or JD, which leads me to ask, how will they incorporate that into the next game if some are saving Del and some are saving JD?

I have a funny feeling both will be dead in the story by the time Gears 6 comes out. Unless they either decide on canon, record the player's first choice, decide based on the community's overall choice, or ask the player at the beginning of next game. Or, they take the Dallas approach: it's just a bad dream.

Agreed I think they’ll do a canon death where Del dies and JD lives.

So why even give the option? I mean if I decide to save Del and JD dies, and then I play the next game and JD is alive, makes no sense. I get it's just a game but still.

Maybe they'll do a Wolfenstein 2 type of campaign. That'd be great for replayability but it's a HUGE undertaking. Maybe JD/Del comes back as some sort of swarm monster? SPECULATION IS FUN.

Either they'll make it so the survivor is written out, or plays a near inactive role in the next gears. Survivors guilt perhaps? it consumes them to dark times and they go for a long walk in a short hive?

It’s just like Walking Dead choices. They carry on into further games, could do something similar. And I assume with a smaller role either way.

In the moment I saved JD, thinking maybe whoever you save the other will get carried off or be saved in the cut scene anyway..
but boy did I then feel guilty..

I had Del screw me over a few times on my Iron Man Campaign twice by dying from pouncers which caused me hours of replaying so it felt excellent to watch him die. Lol. laugh
