Microsoft’s ‘Gears of War’ Dedicated Studio Gets a New Name

Canadian video game maker Black Tusk Studios will now be known as The Coalition and has been tasked by Microsoft in creating new Gears of War games since the franchise is now owned by the tech giant after it’s acquisition last year. In a recent release studio head Rod Fergusson said that like Halo and 343 Industries, you should now associate the Coalition with giant meatheads sporting machine guns with chainsaws attached to them. Also noted was that you should expect to see a new game in the franchise every few years.

E3 is rumored to be the choice for Black Tusk Studios to show the public what they have been working on in regards to Gears of War. Will it be the reboot everyone is talking about or something new entirely? We won’t have to wait long to find out.

Check out the announcement below on the Gears of War Rodcast.
