Rod Fergusson Returns To Bring Fans – “The Coalition”

Most of us in the Gaming Community got an e-mail regarding a message from Rod Fergusson, the name may look familiar to some since he was the former studio head of Black Tusk Studios.

The message is pretty clear, he will be working with 343 Industries to bring Gears of War fans a new installment.

Since the Launch of Microsoft’s One Gears of War fans were hoping the company would announce a new game for the system. Maybe the wait is finally over.

See Rod Fergusson’s message below:

“Hi everyone – I’m Rod Fergusson, former studio head of Black Tusk Studios.

It’s not what you think.

Beginning today, the Vancouver-based Xbox team working on the Gears of War franchise will be known as The Coalition. What’s in a name? In short, The Coalition speaks to who we are as a team, and what it is we’re working on.

A coalition is a team of diverse individuals working together for a common purpose, a concept that we feel describes our studio quite well.
Fans will also recognize the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) from Gears of War lore.

When people hear 343 Industries, they associate it with Halo; when they hear Turn 10 Studios, they know that’s who makes Forza. Moving forward, when you hear The Coalition, we want you to think of Gears of War”.

More Information will be released specifically and Gears fans should be sure to tune in to Xbox Daily: LIVE @ E3, on Monday June 15 at 4PM Pacific to see what the company has planned for the Gears of War Franchise.
