After launching Gears Tactics and relaunching Gears 5 on Xbox Series X|S, The Coalition is just about ready to move on. That doesn't mean that Gears 5 is being dropped, though. There's content on the way still, with Operations 7 and 8 inbound, with each Operation having two drops that include new characters, maps and special events. Through the end of the year, Gears 5 will also have store updates with new content and featured playlists. 

The Coalition is also hiring as well, with a bunch of important jobs up for grabs. This includes a Lead Cinematic Animator for the Gears of War series, a Senior Concept Artist for the Gears of War series, and a Senior Gameplay Engineer for... the Gears of War series, which may come as a shock to you.

There's also some contract roles that are for specific projects, which include a Jr. Technical Writer, Producer 2, and Tools Software Engineer. These jobs are specifically described as not being temporary roles while also being described as temporary, which is strange but whatever, I'm adaptable and can roll with it. 

As for what's to come in the future, there's not much else to announce. They're working with Unreal Engine 5, which should come as no surprise at all, but other than that they "will not be announcing any new projects or titles for some time." It's clear that it's early days yet, but considering the ridiculous amount of developers that Microsoft has (23!) now, The Coalition can take the time they need to push out great games and not have to crunch to create the system seller that Microsoft needed during the last console generation.
