Microsoft’s Vancouver studio has been renamed and is working on Microsoft’s next big project.
The studio, now called Black Tusk Studios, is preparing to start work on “the next Halo.” The team is also looking to double their staff of 55 employees within a year.
“We are working on Microsoft’s next big entertainment franchise,” studio manager Mike Crump tells The Vancouver Sun. “We’re not working on an existing franchise; we’re looking to build the next Halo here in Vancouver, for example, which is really exciting. We are building something from the ground up.”
