Microsoft's Vancouver studio has gotten a fancy new name, Black Tusk Studios. With this rebranding comes a fresh website which gives us a rough idea of what's in production:
"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."
Previously, we heard that the studio was working on a "core gamer"-focused shooter that utilized Kinect. Right now, the team is looking to expand with a number of job openings across multiple disciplines. They aren't kidding around with some of those requirements.
