Announced – Gears of War: Judgment

The upcoming Game Informer cover has revealed a new Gears of War game is in the works. Titled Gears of War: Judgment, the game is set to feature franchise mainstays Cole and Baird, prompting speculation that the game is set to be a prequel to the Gears of War trilogy. Epic Games president Mike Capps confirmed through Twitter that People Can Fly are involved with this game.

The Gears of War franchise has proven successful for Epic Games, earning the company more than $1 billion over the three games; Gears of War 3 alone sold 3 million copies in its first week. The Polish-based, Epic Games-owned studio People Can Fly most recently developed Bulletstorm.

More details of this game will be revealed at Microsoft’s E3 press conference this Tuesday morning (Australian time).
