Well Lester Speight, the voice actor for the Augustus Cole "Train" character, has confirmed that he has been contacted to return to the series. When asked if he has gotten a call about the new Gears game, Speight responded, "#whoobaby Yup!"
If he does indeed return, it seems more than likely that the old crew would return, rather than an attempt to forge a new story with new characters. Of course, this is all speculative, since Cole's role hasn't been confirmed yet and could just be a cameo.
