Adding Batista to Gears 5
we started with the fantasy of ‘Batista as Marcus,’ putting Batista into Marcus’ armor, and starting with Marcus’ script.

Batista was great in the booth and I can’t wait for Gears and Batista fans alike to stomp some Swarm as The Animal.
An official report states that Xbox has already created a special countdown to Batista’s availability in the game, including behind-the-scenes with Gears 5 and Batista on WWE UpUpDownDown gaming channel.
