Gears of War is a saga of tremendous ups and downs. The high points of what began as one of the most powerful franchises of Epic Games and Microsoft are extraordinary, but right now we can not say that it is going through a good moment. Having lost much of its weight in the industry, we were recently talking about the possibility of a Gears of War 6 that he sought to come back strong, and it seems that this is becoming more and more real.
We already had clues that Joshua Ortega, co-creator of Gears of War 2 and 3, could be involved in the new project in the saga. making it quite obvious that something was cooking behind the scenes, we had no official confirmation that Gears of War 6 was in development. Now this seems to be clearer than ever.
A new job offer seeks senior gameplay designers within The Coalition, the current makers of the Gears of War saga. In addition to that, it is specified that it would be to work within the third-person shooter franchise. The offer also makes allusion to the project for which they seek employees.
We are looking for candidates with experience in characters, camera and controls, or artificial intelligence systems. You must have experience creating large-scale functions and taking them from conception to polishing and completion”, the job offer says in terms of what they are looking for from this new employee.
Although it is true that Gears of War 6 is not explicitly mentioned, and that it could be a remastering, the fact that they are looking for someone with knowledge to create new mechanics may be an indication that we are facing a new game in the franchise. We will have to wait and see where this leads.
