The artists formerly known as Black Tusk Studios have had a name change – they’ll now be known as The Coalition.

Studio head Rod Fergusson made the announcement on Xbox Wire, with the reasoning behind the name change being:

“A coalition is a team of diverse individuals working together for a common purpose, a concept that we feel describes our studio quite well.
Fans will also recognize the Coalition of Ordered Governments (COG) from Gears of War lore.
When people hear 343 Industries, they associate it with Halo; when they hear Turn 10 Studios, they know that’s who makes Forza. Moving forward, when you hear The Coalition, we want you to think of Gears of War.”
