Gears of Wars developer The Coalition revealed that its future projects will be developed on “Unreal Engine 5”. So, don’t expect a Gears of Wars 6 announcement for some time.
This could end up in a huge upgrade to the visuals quality of the games. The only downside will be we won’t be seeing any new projects from The Coalition for a while. A post from the Gears 5 website explains, “Shifting to a new engine is a big undertaking, so we want to be clear that we will not be announcing any new projects or titles for some time”.
It’s worth noting that The Coalition doesn’t mention Gears of War projects here. Which means we could see a whole new IP. It’s interesting to see that the rumors of Star Wars title being developed, those rumors have been shot down by The Coalition.
