Forums - Microsoft Discussion - MS hiring for 'next-gen AAA' game 'similar to Horizon Zero Dawn'

Does Microsoft have a engine like Decima capable enough to do this? or are they going to make a new one for this game?

One of the reasons Horizon Zero Dawn looks so good, is because of how crazy advanced this new game engine is.

Its "ahead" of the game so to speak.

Do you guys think MS will make a new engine? or try to get Horizon Zero Dawn graphics able to run on Xbox One S  (weaker than a normal PS4) on a old engine?

What a terrible description. They aren't even in the same genre or even played from the same perspective. 



Microsoft should just use Unreal 4, they used it for Fable Legends and that game looked leaps and bounds better than HZD (played both), they should (like ive always said) make Fable 4, just copy everything over from legends including that godly soundtrack.

Holy shit, I've described it as an Ubisoft clone since I played it but you're right LOL.

Either way it's not super original or anything.

They will probably amke a new engine.

A game with Horizon graphics should run 900p on base XB1.

this thread is about a job as a lead environment artist, not about the genre or playstyle. 



This is clearly fake, we all know MS doesn't make SP games any more.

But its nothing like Crysis in that regard as well, its environment is far more diverse.
