The name of the studio working on the new Gears of War title is no longer named Black Tusk Studios, but is now called The Coalition, according to studio head Rod Fergusson.

Fergusson, teased the studio logo on Twitter before announcing it on Xbox Wire.

“The Vancouver-based Xbox team working on the Gears of War franchise will be known as The Coalition, said Fergusson. “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. Moving forward, when you hear The Coalition, we want you to think of Gears of War.”

He said the team will share more on Gears of War at E3 later this month and to tune into to Xbox Daily: LIVE @ E3, on Monday June 15 at 4PM for more information.
