According to a new rumor released by the usual Jeff Grubb, The Coalition it would currently be in a rather excited phase from a creative and professional point of view, with the Microsoft studio that it would be working on three projects at the same time.
According to what was declared by the well-known videogame insider during one of his frequent livestreams, The Coalition would be first and foremost offering its support to 343 Industries on Halo Infinite. The new Master Chief adventure is highly anticipated by Xbox fans, and after the postponement it is possible that Microsoft has decided to increase the workforce committed to the ambitious project.
Other than that, Grubb seems to assume that the software house has also kicked off the development of Gears 6, the next chapter of the famous third-person shooter series that has made school for the genre to which it belongs. In recent weeks, however, it was Grubb himself who decisively ruled out the possibility of Gears 6 being shown at E3 2021, since Microsoft, but also The Coalition itself, currently have too much meat to manage internally.
Last but not least, the insider anticipates something very intriguing: according to its sources, The Coalition is also working on “a new IP” set within the Star Wars universe. (Star Wars Day 2021 is celebrated today with many games from the franchise on offer). Grubb, however, did not want to give the information for sure, since he never received definitive confirmation that the project is actually part of the Star Wars imaginary, and he did not even know how to indicate a time window in which the title would be presented or placed on the market. Obviously this is only a rumor, and as such we advise you to take it with due caution. You would like a Star Wars game developed by the authors of Gears of War?
