Gears 5 is sadly one of the major releases that doesn't have time tracking on the Xbox One console companion app. Is there any way for a game like this to show the hours played or is that impossible since it only has its own in game time tracker?
Nope.. sadly MS no longer cares about stats in their games including time played. Was not that long ago even Minecraft on Switch had stats... but MS clearly no longer cares and it sucks. Gears 5 have nothing in the way of dash stats including time played. Most Xbox games need to have hours added by hand now. No different than Sony.
