Are the Gears in motion?

Gears 6 is reportedly in full development

Gears of War 6 (or officially “Gears 6”) is reportedly in full development which kickstarted within the last year, according to a rumour.

When replying to a Twitter thread from a follower asking if a project might be the game that the current developer, The Coalition is working on, the industry insider Jeff Grubb claimed that the next game has been in full development “in the last year or so”.

Could Gears 6 be announced soon?

I mentioned it like summer 2021. I heard again around that Matrix demo that it was still working on it,” replied Grubb “But things could have changed, I do believe that work on Gears 6 has begun in full in the last year or so, though.


However, Grubb elaborated further on the news of Gears 6 reportedly being in full development. Perhaps giving an indication that its release could arrive sooner than we think.

During this week’s episode of Game Mess Morning for Giant Bomb, Grubb claims that multiple projects have been scrapped from The Coalition. Well, that’s apart from Gears 6.

It’s pretty much a given that Gears 6 would arrive for PC and Xbox Series X|S at some point. However, we should still take unconfirmed rumours with a pinch of salt until proven otherwise.

At the time of writing, it’s fast approaching four years since the release of Gears 5. However, we did have Gears Tactics in 2020.

That being said, it’s still been a busy time in the rumour mill for the series. Not only have we heard rumours of Gears getting the Master Chief Collection treatment, but we’ve even got a Netflix movie and series on the way,

That being said, hopefully, The Coalition will reveal Gears 6 in the coming months. Are you still excited about a potential new entry in the Gears of War franchise? Let us know across our social media channels.
