This morning a new rumor surfaced that Xbox’s The Coalition studio is now fully focused on Gears 6 following cancellations of two other internal projects. Jeff Grubb speaking on his morning show for Giant Bomb commented on the development. This has since been corroborated by a few additional sources including Insider Gaming.
It had been discussed broadly that The Coalition was working on two new projects outside of Gears, one of which was to be a new IP. While we may not have concrete details on what these were to be any time soon, it seems disappointing that we won’t get to see The Coalition’s talent on other franchises in the near-term. That said, as big fans of Gears of War, we are excited by the prospect of Gears 6’s potential to bring the IP back into the spotlight.
We’ll report back should any more details come to light!
