Work on Gears 6 is Progressing; The Coalition is Calling Reinforcements
It seems that The Coalition, currently owned by Microsoft, is seeking reinforcements. According to a job ad posted on the Internet, the company is looking for specialists in motion capture technology.
We've known that the latest installment of the iconic FPS is being developed for nearly two years now, but the studio was reluctant to share details about the work during that time. The release of Gears 5 took place in 2019, so fans had the right to be a little thirsty for new information about the continuation of the adventures of Marcus Fenix.
Completing the team
It turns out that the studio is hiring more employees, including for work on Gears 6. According to the latest announcement, posted on Microsoft's official website, the team is looking for people who specialize in motion capture.
Admittedly, the Canadian developer mentiones more than just working on GoW 6, but it is not difficult to guess that this project will be the apple of Coalition's eye. At the end of 2021 the team announced that they were looking for a person to fill the position of director of live design, whose responsibilities will include, among other things, "shaping and developing live PVP and PVE gameplay in team's future titles".
It's worth noting that, as the studio begins its search for a motion capture specialist, we'll probably have to wait a bit longer for an official announcement or the first gameplays.
Switch to Unreal Engine 5
In recent months, the time for change has come, and The Coalition has been steadily revealing more and more information about work on the yet to be officially announced Gears 6 project. Some time ago one of our news concerned the popular shooter's transition to the Unreal Engine 5 technology, which will make use the full potential of the gameplay.
