Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Microsoft is reviving a well loved strategy game franchise

15 comments by MrTaxikiller on May 7th, 2014

Paging all armchair generals - please wax your moustaches, don your monocles and, er, plump your armchairs. Microsoft appears to be working on a new instalment of a classic strategy game franchise, as per a job ad spotted by NeoGAF.
 "Microsoft Studios is looking for a highly experienced senior games developer to help build and lead the team for a new AAA title within an established and well-loved strategy game franchise," it reads. The successful candidate's "primary responsibilities will be to recruit and lead the client-side engineering team, drive technical strategy for client development, manage the day-to-day engineering rhythm, and evaluate and recommend appropriate middleware and tools to accomplish our goals".

Microsoft has three strategy franchises that could fit the label "established and well-loved", by my reckoning. The most obvious is Age of Empires, created by now-dead Ensemble Studios - there hasn't been a peep on that front since 2011's free-to-play instalment Age of Empires Online, which is due to be closed down in July 2014.Ensemble is also the studio behind Halo Wars, one of the few well-regarded and successful console-native real-time strategy titles. I'm not sure I'd call it an "established" franchise, though - sales weren't spectacular. Phil Spencer praised the game's control scheme while expressing guarded enthusiasm for console strategy experiences in January.Last but not least, there's Viva Pinata, Rare's intensely sugary animal husbandry sim. The developer has ideas for how a new game might make use of Kinect, and Microsoft's head PR honcho Major Nelson has broached the subject on Reddit. I also can't help noticing that Rare retweeted our retrospective from last month. On the other hand, the job listing above is based in Redmond, rather than at Rare's HQ in Leicestershire, UK.Any frothy bits of speculation to share?

The mod is based off the human covenant war, its not rooted in timelines or restricted by story, its merely an RTS mod based off the human covenant war. That'd what he means when its not based on lore, its just not based on the story so he doesn't have to adhere to canon timelines etc. Basically make your own history.

First of all, its funny when someone says "I don't mean to be rude". Yet they still have the intention of doing so. Its like saying, I don't mean to be an ***, but I am still going to be one anyways. Sounds really hypocritical...right?

Second, accusing someone of not having an imagination is rather out of line and just down right trash talk.

Third, you are attempting to start a argument over the internet. Do you know how silly that is? Go else where troll/flamer. We don't appreciate that sort of person around here.

Forth, I was simply question the thought process behind the mod. I can see what the mods description says, but I was simply wondering what MrTaxikiller thought process was.

The best thing you can do for everyone now is to stop typing altogether. Your points are invalid if you cannot understand the idea behind the mod itself or the creativity required to start, let alone continue such a project. it does not require a story as it is NOT canon. timeline-based facts from the halo universe are invalid here, and if you have a problem with that, then suck it up and rant about it elsewhere because nobody here wants to see you try to make sense about something that does not. don't question why something exists if there is no reason for it existing other than to and allow others to enjoy its existence. its that simple. you don't have to like it if you don't want to and nobody is trying to tell you any different, but please, if you're not here to support the idea, then please leave this page to those of us who do support it. refusal to do so would be pointless on your part since based on all of the comments responding to what you said, few here care what you think or believe and those who do care, only care enough to talk you into leaving so others don't have to see someone with disappointed eyes trying to put down a mod simply because it is different.

Want a simple answer? Two words - Alternate Universe. Now stop arguing about such a stupid little detail that doesn't really matter.

Actually, I do. I know of (and still know) plenty of people who would heavy question why this mod has 34 years instead of 28 years. Not only that but they would also question why he says he is not basing it off of the Halo Lore, yet all of the vehicles are from the Halo Lore and the mod itself it Halo themed.
