No wonder The Coalition will be working on a new Gears of War game. The third-person shooter franchise has been a mainstay of the Xbox platform since the early days of the Xbox 360, and it looks like the studio is now working on Gears 6.
The new work announcement seen by Segment Next is our biggest sign that the development of the next Gears game is in the works. The ad attempts to hire a motion capture specialist to join The Coalition and work on the Gears of War franchise. This list doesn’t go into details about the project itself, but it does offer a small hint at the studio’s future. The job posting reads: “We are the official home of the Gears of War franchise, and our goal is to create the future of intellectual property and push the boundaries of Microsoft’s entertainment platforms and devices.”
Back in December last year, The Coalition posted a job for a director of live design. This role appears to include working on PvP and PvE in future games. It’s clear that the studio has big plans for what the next game in the Gears of War series will be, but it might be a while before we see any of that come to fruition.
