A new job listing has sparked rumours that the next Gears of War title could currently be in development.
The job listing was recently added to Microsoft’s Careers portal and calls for a Lead Mission Designer and goes into detail regarding the future the franchise.
The post calls for a candidate will need to work closely with the Campaign Director on the next instalment in the series.
The listing reads “The Coalition is seeking an inspiring, highly motivated Mission Design Lead with a proven track record of delivering highly engaging, high-quality campaign experiences in games. In this position you will work with the Campaign Director and the Level Design Team to design the campaign experience, its pacing, its rewards, and the features that surround “.
There has also been rumours that the team could be working on a completely different IP to Gears, after all Xbox’s own Aaron Greenberg noted at the beginning of this year that the studio was planning on shifting it’s focus on a number of unannounced projects.
Either way, it looks like something is upcoming for the long awaited Gears 6 as thew developer removed the map builder in order to “focus on future projects”.
