It seems the next Gears of War game won’t be coming to Xbox 360. Jack Felling, developer with the game’s maker Black Tusk Studios, has confirmed on Twitter that the new Gears of War will be an Xbox One exclusive:
@Clayton_117 No sorry, it won't be available on the 360 but it will be available for the Xbox One!

Though the game was pretty sure to be next-gen only, plenty of developers over the last year have later opted to release for previous consoles, like Alien Isolation, Forza Horizon 2, and the forthcoming Lara Croft sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, raved about the in-development game back in December, saying that the Black Tusk team were making “massive progress”. A trailer for the new Gears of War game is expected at E3 in June.
