It should be noted that GDC is not a fair dedicated to the consumer but oriented to developers and therefore most of these talks are rather technical, not dedicated to announcing new releases. However, Jeff Grubb has commented that Alpha Point It is a prototype of a “small” game that The Coalition is working on. before your next Gears of War: “Not to be [una simple] demo, it is a small project that Microsoft hopes for 2023, although it could arrive before, and not take years and years “says Grubb in a conversation about the new of the study.

The Coalition confirm “varios proyectos”
The studio itself had already dropped that its most immediate game would not be Gears 6 but something different. “As we look to the future of gaming, we are excited to begin shifting our resources to next-generation development using Unreal Engine 5.

Unreal Engine 5 was introduced last year and recently launched in early access so developers can start testing its capabilities as soon as possible. Epic also announced that all projects made with Unreal Engine 4 can be easily upgraded to Unreal Engine 5 so developers will not have to worry about the compatibility of their projects with the new engine.
