According to their LinkedIn profile , The Coalition is developing a brand new game. The leak was made by one of the level designers for the multiplayer mode Pedro Camacho D’Andrea , who noted in his portfolio that he had been working on a project on a new IP for the past six months. After a while, the employee updated the profile, removing the mention of the game.
In May, The Coalition announced that it was preparing to move to Unreal Engine 5 and would not announce new projects for some time.
“We’re delighted to be shifting our resources towards developing next-gen games on Unreal Engine 5 with a future in mind. The transition to a new engine is a serious task, so we want to honestly warn you that we will not announce any new projects or games for some time. “
Next week will be GDC 2021, where The Coalition intends to showcase its developments. This coming Tuesday, the technical director will show the tech-demo Alpha Point, the first footage of which the studio showed the other day.
Most likely, The Coalition is working on Gears 6 as well , but this is a simple guess with three reasons. First off, Gears of War is one of Microsoft ‘s biggest franchises and the face of the Xbox alongside Halo . Second, there is no reason to believe that The Coalition is about to drop the streak. Third, Gears 5’s story campaign ends with a cliffhanger, which clearly implies a sequel.
