The Coalition studio head Rod Fergusson announced that the new Gears of War is coming to E3; gamers should watch Xbox Daily: LIVE @ E3 at 4:00PM PT on Monday, June 15 for a first glimpse of the studio’s new effort.
Originally known as Black Tusk Studios, the developer which took over the Gears of War franchise from series creator Epic Games has renamed itself The Coalition.
Reflecting on the name change, Fergusson stated that “fans will also recognize the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) from Gears of War lore.” He said that “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.”
