New Gears of War confirmed

UPDATE: It's called Gears of War: Judgement.

UPDATE: The next entry in Epic's Xbox 360 franchise is called Gears of War: Judgement, so says Game Informer.

The US games magazine also offered up a few additional tidbits of info on the title. Series regulars Damon Baird and Augustus "Cole Train" Cole feature, both of whom are depicted in chains on the new issues' twin covers. The back covers show hordes of Locust appearing generally up to no good. See below for a closer look.

As reported earlier today, Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly is thought to be developing the game. A full reveal is expected at Microsoft's E3 press conference on Monday.

ORIGINAL STORY: Microsoft will announce a new Gears of War title during its E3 conference on Monday.

The game, currently without a title, is on the cover of next month's Game Informer.

All we have to go on so far is the image below, showing a silhouetted figure in chains.

Is Epic Games developing it internally? Or might it have farmed this one out to Bulletstorm developer People Can Fly? We've asked Epic for more information and will update if we hear back.
