Microsoft and Epic Games will be debuting a new Gears of War title during the Microsoft conference at E3. The game was teased yesterday as part of Game Informer’s latest cover reveal.

Unlike previous cover reveals for the publication, this one wasn’t a full blowout of the title. They are keeping it a mystery until Microsoft hosts their E3 conference Monday morning. All we have to go off for right now is the mag’s cover, which is predominately kept in shadow. However, the handcuffs do insinuate that the shadowy figure is Marcus Fenix and that this game could be a prequel that explores how he ended up in prison in the first place.


Since the cover “reveal,” Epic Games has stated that developer People Can Fly (Bulletstorm) will be involved in some capacity. This lines up with previous rumors.

More info will be coming during Microsoft’s E3 press conference, which takes place Monday morning at 9am PST.
