According to Xboxygen, the game will indeed be a prequel that is set 14 years prior to the events of the Gears of War 1.
It was already revealed that the next Gears of War title would be handled by People Can Fly. More details are expected on Monday, when Microsoft reveals this Xbox 360 exclusive at their pre-E3 press conference at 9:00 am PDT.
