This isn't the first time information on a Gears of War remaster has surfaced. Last month a video was posted which appeared to include footage from the game. When approached for a comment on the leak, a Microsoft spokesperson said, "We have nothing to announce at this time."

The company may be announcing a Gears of War remaster at its E3 conference. Be sure to stay tuned to GameSpot for the latest E3 news as it rolls out.
