There's a new webpage for the Microsoft first-party studio in Vancouver. On it they claim to be making "core" games for Microsoft, and looking for new team members to help them do so. It could be that they're working on a 'core AAA shooter' experience using Kinect.

In Vancouver, at Microsoft's studios, he says that their studio has recently changed focus, and is now "developing a core AAA shooter experience using Kinect."
There's no mention of the Halo franchise on the MS Vancouver site or this job listing, but the timing fits with things we've been hearing. Wouldn't that be an interesting game?
