Gears of War 4 is now deep in development at Microsoft's internal studio The Coalition. However, a version of the upcoming Xbox One shooter was started by the franchise's original creators at Epic Games.
According to Game Informer:
Epic Games worked on their version of Gears of War 4 for six months before deciding to abandon its development. Epic is now working on other games, such as the free-to-play multiplayer shooter Paragon. Meanwhile The Coalition and Microsoft are scheduled to release their vision for Gears of War 4 sometime in late 2016.
