” That’s (Gears 6) is one of those things that I don’t even know about sadly. I know that they’re doing like more Gears of War 5 like, expanded DLC stuff so, they may be focusing on that for a while,” said McIntyre during the interview at Supanova Melbourne 2021.
This means that whatever work McIntyre is currently doing on the Gears franchise, is in regards to Gears 5, which was originally released in 2019. In fact, McIntyre was aware of the lengthy period of time that production of the series will be halted, due to the engine upgrade. As a result, he hasn’t been approached, or at the very least, couldn’t tell us if he had been approached to begin working on a Gears of War 6 as of yet. This means that production of a new Gears game is very much in its infancy.
