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.

___________

Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

X1: Titanfall, COD: AW.    PS4: Watch Dogs, Destiny

Xbox E3 Exclusives: Halo MCC, Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Dance Central Spotlight

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.

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.
