Xbox's general manager has shot down a claim that The Coalition is working on multiple unannounced games.

Earlier today on February 23, Spanish-based Twitter account Xbox Studio claimed to have received comment from Xbox general manager Aaron Greenberg stating that there were multiple unannounced games in the works from Gears of War developer The Coalition. Speaking to GamesRadar+ however, Greenberg shot down the claims as entirely false, revealing that he never spoke to the Twitter account in the first place.

The Coalition is the developer behind Gears of War 4, and more recently, Gears 5. Right now, there's no concrete information surrounding current projects the developer has on the go, but now we at least know the claim that they're developing multiple unannounced projects is entirely without merit.

The Coalition's last game would be Gears 5, which released back in September 2019. The last we heard from the studio itself was a rebuttal of a rumored Star Wars game in May 2021, as well as revealing that it'd shifted entirely to "next-gen development," but that we shouldn't expect any new games from the studio "for some time."

Aside from that, a leaker claimed late last year that Gears 6 is in development at The Coalition, and eyeing a launch between 2024 and 2025, while another claimed that the studio is developing a brand new IP. For now though, we'll have to wait a while longer to see what the studio actually is developing.
