Microsoft Game Studios Vancouver renamed to 'Black Tusk Studios'


Microsoft has announced that Microsoft Game Studios Vancouver has been given a new lick of paint and renamed Black Tusk Studios in a recent shake up.


MGS Vancouver hasn't had the best of years with Microsoft cancelling development on their Kinect based shooter and all future progress on the F2P Microsoft Flight title.

Black Tusk Studios is dedicated to creating immersive, AAA games that push the limits of Microsoft's entertainment platforms. Located in downtown Vancouver, Canada, we are part of the Microsoft Studios family, and we are growing. Do you have what it takes to keep pace with the best talent in the industry? Do you want to help define Microsoft's next big entertainment franchise? Let's talk.

Black Tusk has assembled a team of seasoned game industry veterans who are united in their passion to create emotionally engaging AAA gaming experiences.

We hire the best talent from Vancouver and around the world, and our global recruiting effort is reflected in the diversity of cultures and backgrounds on our team.

Our people are talented, creative, fun-loving professionals with a desire to be part of something big. Something really big.

Really like the new name. Still bitterly disappointed about Microsoft Flight getting canned but better the game be cancelled than the studio be shut down. Here's to bright futures, Black Tusk! *raises glass*

I realy enjoyed Microsoft Flight, but I think from a market point of view, these things aren't as big. Such a shame coz the concept and visuals were pretty awesome!

Could it be a breakaway from Microsoft? It seems very odd to can those games one being for the Kinect which is the Xbox flagship

Microsoft deprioritising Kinect is the best move they could make right now given their dire schedule of exclusives next year.

Rebranding for Next gen? Seems likely. Shame their big new game is yet another sci fi shooter though. How many of those does Microsoft need exactly?

I agree there Kevin they have so many with Halo being the biggest. But I think Next Gen might be what this moves for. Would like them to work on a PS3 game too though!

Heh... I think they'll be sticking to Microsoft platforms only somehow :)
