The new mystery Gears of War game is being developed in part by Bulletstorm creator People Can Fly, Epic Games president Mike Capps revealed today on Twitter. Responding to a question of whether or not the Warsaw, Poland-based developer had any involvement with the new game, Capps responded energetically, "YES YES YES!"
People Can Fly is no stranger to the Gears of War franchise. Before creating Bulletstorm, the studio developed the much-praised PC version of the original Gears of War. In April, Capps told GameSpot that People Can Fly did initial work on a Bulletstorm sequel, but Epic decided to shelve that project in favor of "a project that was a better fit" for the studio.
Yesterday, Game Informer revealed that a new Gears of War game was in development and shared only one teasing image of the project. Further details on the game will be made available during Microsoft's 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo media briefing, scheduled for Monday, June 4 at 9:30 a.m. PDT.

[UPDATE]: Game Informer has revealed that the new game is titled Gears of War: Judgment. Additionally, the magazine posted images of two versions of its next cover, which features younger (or at least less grizzled) versions of series staples Baird and Cole.
