One of the biggest problems gamers have with Microsoft is that the company relies too heavily on multiplatform games, and haven’t done enough to boost its first-party lineup. Seems like Redmond is taking a step in the right direction, as they’ve created a brand new first-party game development studio, one that will be responsible for developing “core” games.
From the new studio’s website:
“MGS Vancouver is building a world-class development team in Vancouver, BC, Canada, dedicated to making games for “core” gamers. Our mission is to push the limits of proven and unexplored game development and show the world what’s possible on Microsoft’s game consoles. And yes, we’re also an awesome place to work!”
We’re hiring! Our team is growing and we want you to join us! Check out our Careers section and new Job Postings to see if you’d be a good fit.”
New IPs are always a plus, and if MS can start developing some more awesome Xbox 360 exclusives, it’ll boost the firm’s lineup immensely, and I’ll be a much more happy camper.
