They are doubling their workforce and building the next big exclusive franchise.

I like shooters though. But it would be nice to see MS experiment. Theres tons of genres out there that need to be messed with. MS could make a Space Sim, Open World game(Better than Fable), ect.

Lets just hope it turns out good, even if it's a shooter.

Hmm.... Rare make Kameo, I think, which was a solid launch title.
Bungie made Halo, now that's handed off to 343.

No doubt Rare is already working on another next gen launch title. Despite the fact that they're not making what their older fans want (Banjo 3, for example), they're still capable of producing games. Do I want another Kinect title? No, but they sell. But it is a Kinect title or another Kameo type title? Who knows...

No doubt 343 is already working on Halo 5. That's pretty much a given.

So... A shooter is unlikely, I think. They have Activision to produce CoD on a yearly basis, so there's that. Plus there's also Battlefield.

I mean, it COULD be a shooter. I hope it isn't. I'm almost wondering is Microsoft will try their hand at the WRPG market... Just a hunch, I've no basis, but... Hell, I don't know what I WANT them to be making. I'm cautiously optimistic about every possible genre it could be.

Watch, it's the next Hexic game.

It will be a shooter.


TPS or FPS though, that is the question.

Fable is Microsoft's stab at that market. They have no interest is anything that won't appeal to as much people as possible.

How are you so sure?

I don't mind shooters, but Microsoft is using that genre a bit much.

Do you want to read awesomely rad reviews and articles? No? ****.

Are you sure they would want to release competition for Halo? I mean, if its a TPS that's a little less of a problem.

Meh.. I might just pass. I don't hate shooters, but they have to be really good to impress me enough to pay $60.

I still have my fingers crossed for a non-shooter, though.

Right, but MS has Lionhead for Fable. Just like they have 343 for Halo, and thus the FPS genre. Lionhead lost PM (Thank goodness), but they're still with MS.

I was talking more of the Bethesda WRPG. First person and all.

It won't be racing, they have Forza. They don't want the studios they own to compete with other studios they own... So it shouldn't be another FPS... Unless they release this new IP and Halo bi-yearly, so MS would make money each year, just how Activision releases IW and Treyarch CoS games bi-yearly...


...Damn. No idea, really.
