A series of job board postings all but confirms that there will be a new Gears of War title in the near future.

We all knew that when Microsoft bought the Gears of War franchise from Epic Games that we would see some exciting titles, and although Gears of War UE and 4 have received mixed reception from the hardcore fan base we are all excited about the possibility of a new game that will satisfy the many fans of the game all over the world.

Lets take a look at the job postings.

The storyboard artist posting. Is clear that if you are hiring a new storyboard artist you are going to be seriously investing in creating at least an edited story addition to the game. The

when you look through the essetinal skills and experience of these postings, they want you to have experience on a AAA title. Basically Splash Damage or The Coalition are announcing a big title soon.

Essential Skills and Experience

– At least 2 years of industry experience and 1 shipped AAA current gen or last gen (PS3 / Xbox 360) console or PC title that featured a multiplayer component, worked on from beginning to end

– Experience in creating first or third person shooters

– Experience of prototyping gameplay mechanics using UE4, Source, or similar

– Experience with source-control applications (SVN, Perforce, AlienBrain, etc.)

Preferred Skills and Experience

– UE4 Blueprints / UE3 UnrealScript

– Experience with 3DSMax, Maya, or other professional 3D modelling software

If you are in doubt at this point about this just being general recruitment for the Gears of War game franchise. Then why would they be recruiting so many people in so many positions and mentioning experience on delivering AAA titles?

List of all jobs available. We have included the Unannounced Project also, as this is what we believe to be the same title.
