Epic-owned development studio People Can Fly are the guys responsible for titles like Painkiller, Bulletstorm and the PC port of the first Gears of War game. Now, according to a rumour in the latest OXM magazine, Epic has put them in charge of developing the next Gears of War trilogy.

Furthermore, it’s rumoured that the next three games will actually be a prequel trilogy, detailing the events leading up to those we’re already familiar with.

Obviously, this has “Rumour” stamped all over it so don’t get too excited and/or upset by what’s being suggested. People Can Fly certainly know what they’re doing, and considering how closely Epic worked with them for Bulletstorm they seem like a good fit.
