Modern Gears of War developers The Coalition are apparently working on something entirely original. A listing from production company StoryLab, who previously worked with the developers on Gears of War 4 and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, suggests that they’re again collaborating with The Coalition on “a new IP.”
Another potential title for our list of upcoming PC games.
That’s all the detail we have so far, but it seems even this small announcement was premature, since the page has now been deleted and now appears to exist only in screencaps (this one courtesy of WCCFTech).
A mightily vague rumor stemming from a ResetEra post has set corners of the internet aflame in anticipation of a Coalition-developed Perfect Dark revival, but the “new IP” phrasing here suggests this isn’t that. Unless “new” simply means “new to them.”
Microsoft have made clear in recent months their desire to expand first-party game development, which has certainly been lacking recently in comparison to that of the other console manufacturers. Microsoft’s recent games offer an extra benefit for us PC players, since they’ve largely been cross-platform between computers and Xbox One, and whatever The Coalition’s next project is it will likely follow suit.
