Yea I'm kind of thinking they won't release another shooter, unless, like Apostle said, they go bi-annual with Halo. If this is what happens I'll be pretty dissapointed.

Doubling their efforts? what happened did the CEO of Ms drop by and say that Bill Gates was coming and that he'd be less forgivin?

Unless we get a list of the staff, get an idea of their background in the industry as to what they've made before... All we can do is speculate.




But... Hm. Ok, this is certainly a possibility:

Microsoft recently released Happy Wars, didn't they?
So... what's to stop them from making a MMO? I'm not saying full-blown WoW, ToR, GW2 or anything. But somewhere in between PSU (in idea, not execution) and GW2. Certainly a step up from something like Happy Wars and Dungeon Fighter, though.

MS is in the business of making money. Microtransactions, despite my personal feelings, make TONS of money. So... It's certainly possible.

I'm throwing my hat into the ring in support of this gentleman right here.

They're trying to build "the next Halo". A big blockbuster, multi-million copy selling franchise.

Any kind of RPG is not going to fit that role for them.

Aru, I think you may be taking "the next Halo" too literally.

I took it as "the next massive Microsoft franchise", not as "the next massive Microsoft FPS series".

But you could be right, if my bi-yearly theory is correct in regards to the FPS shooters.

Kameo was being developed for Nintendo...
MS knows nothing about games, they suck hard.
I'll never forgive them for not backing up Oddworld Strangers. I don't care the game didn't sell, it still was a very good game. Thank You EA for saving one of my favorite games last gen.
