Microsoft has a lot of first-party game studios around the world. With Rare in Europe and Turn 10 in US, Microsoft have their developers that’ll be able to help each other out. Now you can add one more to the list with Microsoft Vancouver’s newly re-named Black Tusk Studios.
Black Tusk Studios is hard at work on an unannounced project but why not announce their new name? It’s been under wraps for a while now, according to The Vancouver Sun. They plan to make big AAA games and want to work on the next big franchise. Studio Manager Mike Crump even said they want to “work on the next Halo“. Crump clarifies what he means by that statement:
“What that means is we are working on Microsoft’s next big entertainment franchise, We’re not working on an existing franchise, we’re looking to build the next Halo here in Vancouver, for example, which is really exciting. We are building something from the ground up.”
So far, so good sounding at least. Who knows when we’ll see the title if it’s for current or next-gen. We’ll keep you up to date on what to expect from this new developer’s digs.
