During the last episode of Game Mess, industry insider Jeff Grubb affirmed that The Coalition will be working on Gears of War 6 and a new IP.
Disclaimer – This information has not been verified, therefore this is not factual.
Grubb states in the video that The Coalition is also helping 343 Industries in Halo Infinite‘s development, this is reasonable considering that the game was initially planned to be an Xbox Series X|S launch title before it was delayed into 2021.
Grubb mentions that he only heard the information from a number of sources, he is not willing to confirm the information for the time being.
The new IP is rumored to be a Star Wars project, it’s possible that LucasFilm Games could’ve considered the experienced developer for the development of a game based on the sci-fi franchise. Another Xbox Game Studio’s team is working on a LucasFilm Games project based on Indiana Jones, potentially confirming a strong relationship between Disney and Xbox.
LucasFilm Games confirmed their intentions to give the Star Wars license to more developers than just Electronic Arts, but at the moment of publishing, the company has just announced an open-world title in development at Ubisoft.
The Coalition defines itself as a growing team of talented, creative, fun-loving professionals, united in their passion for Gears of War. As a Microsoft first-party studio, they focus on pushing “the limits of interactive entertainment and taking Gears to new heights.”
We believe that if you want to go far, go together. It takes a diverse team of people sharing a common vision to make a groundbreaking game. Mutual trust, a shared purpose, and the determination to overcome any obstacles together defines what it means to have a great team. We also believe that fun games can only come from teams that have fun! We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.
