Earlier today we found out that Epic is readying a meaty Gears of War Triple Pack for release next month. Now a new rumor has popped up suggesting that this collection and Gears of War 3 may not be the only Gears products in the works.

This news comes courtesy of Silicon Era, which reports that Epic has filed a trademark for Gears of War: Exile that included the logo above. Silicon Era notes that Epic was scheduled to make a Gears of War announcement at the VGAs in December before it was pulled at the last second.

Of course, any assumption that Exile is related to that announcement or is a new game is just jumping to a conclusion right now. For all we know, it could be a book set in the Gears of War universe or perhaps even nothing at all. We'll have to wait for official word from Epic, which will hopefully come sooner rather than later.
