Footage of what is believed to be Microsoft's rumoured Gears of War remaster has appeared online.

Gameplay videos were originally posted on the XboxDVR website, which gathers clips recorded using the Xbox One's integrated capture technology. However, these clips have since been removed.

Naturally, the footage has now appeared in alternative locations. You can watch two clips here and here. Additionally, images of the game have also popped up on NeoGAF, one of which you can see below.

When asked for a statement on this leak, a Microsoft spokesperson said: "We have nothing to announce at this time."

In April, reports suggested Microsoft was working on an HD remaster of the original Gears of War for Xbox One. Additional sources later said Gears of War on Xbox One features better lighting and improved texture quality.

Multiplayer reportedly runs at 60 frames per second and will feature new cinematics.

Although Microsoft has not yet officially announced the game, it has been reported that Splash Damage, the UK-based studio behind Brink and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars, is development Gears of War HD remaster.

Microsoft acquired the Gears of War franchise from Epic Games last year, and tasked its newly established Black Tusk Studios to create a new entry in the action-shooter series for Xbox One. This project is believed to be a entirely new entry in the series.

Black Tusk producer Rod Fergusson previously teased that fans should tune in to E3 in June, suggesting the new Gears of War may appear during the show.
