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

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?

Just thought I would point out as a helpful tip that the Human-Covenant War actually lasted a total of 28 Years and not the 34 years listed above in the mod description. Not sure where the 34 Years came from to be honest. Care to elaborate why you have it set as that and where you got it?

Otherwise I would suggest fixing that date.

Everything (information wise) looks pretty good.

Like many time's said before, we are not going trough the original story line from the Halo events.

I would love to see the Flood as an npc. Maybe even playable in a special bonus mission. You'd have to make them too zerg-like to balance them in multiplayer, so not so sure about that. Will forerunner structures (like Halo Wars sentinel factory) be tech structures?

Indeed, hopefully they will do the missions last though.
That way they can release a beta for skirmish and multiplayer which will keep the masses entertained while they work on the missions.
