No Comment 68 Views

The team working on the new Gears of War game for the Xbox One - Black Tusk Studios, has just changed their name to The Coalition. Looks like the new name and logo represent the team's new-found purpose of focusing on Gears of War titles for Xbox One.

Here is a brief write-up over on the Xbox news wire, where the studio head of The Coalition Rob Fergusson states:

When people hear 343 Industries, they associate it with Halo; when they hear Turn 10 Studios, they know that’s who makes Forza. Moving forward, when you hear The Coalition, we want you to think of Gears of War.

Usually, when you hear the name “Black Tusk Studio” you don't immediately think about Gears of War. Seeing a chainsaw logo of the letter 'C' and having it rev up instantly makes you think of the chainsaw on the Lancer, and the Lancer instantly makes you think of Gears of War and Xbox.

Currently, there is no information that The Coalition is working on a Gears of War title for Xbox One. Neither, there is any info on who will star in the game and what direction they'll take. Besides, the story looked like it has kind of resolved itself in Gears of War 3 where Marcus Fenix and the crew saved the planet, beat the bad guys and lost a few comrades along the way.

Microsoft tried to bring the series back by releasing Gears of War: Judgment, however, things didn't turn out so well with this game, because lots of gamers saw it as a cheap cash-in on the franchise and as little of anything else.

The newest edition of Gears of War is scheduled for launch on Xbox One quite some time from now. People are expecting that it won't arrive until 2016, so we're likely going to see the game make an appearance at this year's E3. Besides, there's been some rumors and hints at a Gears of War Ultimate Edition planned for release on the Xbox One, somewhat similar to the Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which came out for the console last year.

In case that Gears of War Ultimate Edition is in the works right now, the game could be announced alongside some footage of the newest game during Microsoft's E3 conference. In any case, whoever is working on the Ultimate Edition certainly should make sure that the multiplayer is ironed out right proper, in order not to run into the same problems as Halo: The Master Chief Collection.
