Just what exactly is Black Tusk Studios working on?

A game hasn't been shrouded in this much stubborn, hype-whipping mystery since... well, since Bungie and Destiny, really. Okay, so it's actually quite a regular occurrence. But it's harder to engage the hype-throttle when you're talking about a game with no details, from a company that no one's really heard of. Black Tusk, after all, is the macho re-brand of Microsoft Vancouver, which sounds substantially less maverick.

Looks like Splinter Cell's successor, with a splash of Perfect Dark. I hope the main character isn't that generic-looking in the final game.

Microsofts version of Syphon Filter.

In the skunkworks making the best game EVER!

They're working on multiple new IP"s. Awesome. This could be Microsoft's naughty dog. Sometimes I wish 343i made something besides Halo. And Lionhead something besides Fable.

They could release a franchise every 2 years. 2 years working on halo, 2 years on new IP. And so on. Same goes for LionHead. They are both awesome developers but they need to stop playing it safe. I know Microsoft doesn't Require lionhead to keep making Fable that is their own choice. Give us Black & White dammit!

I'm sure Rare is working on Banjo or Conker, or some new IP, they have three teams. One is working on Killer Instinct, One is working on Kinect Sports. So what's the other one doing?

This is one of the main reasons I believe next gen is going to be the generation to rival the PS2 era. Two power houses (the only powerhouses) going at it, providing the best game exclusives. Glad Microsoft is now investing more into first party studios.

It's obvious they had the advantage early current gen and are til' this day getting most of the sales in games, so they weren't as pressured as Sony. But this time around they're both going head up.

Gaming is going to be sweet.

I don't know, but I'm really excited for it! I love stealth games.


The teaser trailer was in-engine!? ERMAGERD.

I hope we get more info at the VGAs.

You can thank Kojimasan for that.

You're right, lol. MGS 4 is my favorite game, ever (followed closely by Batman: Arkham City and TLOU). When stealth elements are in my games, they instantly become better to me, haha.

BTS seems to be very ambitious with this game. I likes it.

The black tusk logo looks like Hades from GoW3

They seem to be working on Awesomeness!

I really wish we would get some hints or teases from this game. Another great new IP for the X1 in-coming.

Xbox One Day One!

Can someone enlighten on who those guys are?
What games did they make?

UncleGermrod1733d ago

Pessimistic you are. They are not a very storied studio, but they have enlisted many vets from around the industry. Guys who have worked on crysis and CoD are working on the new IP. Also, MS seems to be dumping plenty of money into this so let's just see. I wouldn't make any bets just yet, but there isn't anything wrong with getting excited for what this may be.
