bring it on !

That tweet was VERY interesting.

Every gen Xbox adds a mega franchise. Halo, then Gears, and now this???

Glad that the studio actually has a creative name now.


Older and wiser. Still bias and proud though ;)

Sign me up! Microsoft needs some more IPs. Just wish it wasn't a sci-fi shooter, since two of the biggest Microsoft franchises already fall into that category.

Soooooo, future sci-fi or post apocalypse sci-fi?

I think post apoc. Gears has that theme but isn't owned by MS. MS wants their own one I guess. No sense in making another future based game to have Halo cannibalize it.

i have big hopes for this studios after what 343 has done.

In fact i haver big hopes for all MS Studios now after seeing Playground, Turn10, 343 and how they helped Epic.

Improve your game Rare and Lionhead next gen, you are way behind.
