Gears 5 developer's new IP might have been confirmed by the level designer
By Ray Ampoloquio July 18, 2021
One of the constants of the gaming rumor mill is that The Coalition, the developer behind the latest Gears of War games, is busy working on a new IP.
There's no official confirmation of the project being in development, but the prevalence of the speculation suggests that there is some hint of truth to it.
Although the new IP remains unconfirmed, a level designer might have just provided the most concrete piece of evidence yet.
Hawkeyed observers noticed that Pedro Camacho D'Andrew's LinkedIn profile is showing that he's worked for The Coalition for about a year and has filled two different positions ever since.
The first one described him as a multiplayer level designer, which might refer to his work on Gears 5.
The second listing is the intriguing part. It lists him as working as a level designer "on new IP".
This marks the first time that anyone from the Gears 5 development team has "leaked" the existence of The Coalition's next project.
Just what exactly The Coalition is working on next is unknown.
If we're lucky, The Coalition might subtly drop a glimpse or two of its new IP at GDC 2021.
