iGR: "Many thought that Black Tusk's fate was decided when news broke that they'd be continuing the Gears of War franchise. Based on a few tweets from Xbox Jobs, there's another iron still in the fire at Black Tusk"
So it sounds like the new I.P. is on the back burner now.
You do realize the acquisition of GOW was public as of today, if what you are saying is true Black Lust hasn't been working on anything for almost a year. I'm sure that trailer at E3 was definitely something, but they can't announce everything just yet.
So they have 2 teams? or 1.5?
I hope when the dev team was started they were not told to sit there and look at the wall.
So Gears is now exclusive and they are working on another new IP? Nice!
I can't wait to see something from this studio. Microsoft has needed a new first party giant, hopefully Black Tusk is up to the job and will show off some cool stuff at E3. I'm excited for their future, and I haven't owned an Xbox sonce the first one.
So new IP won't be released any time soon instead there making Gears of war games
@Uchiha Wrong. They acquired the Ip but still in full development on their original project. Don't expect Gears for a while.
This means Black tusk will be working on gears of war and an all new franchise.im just glad ms is investing heavily into new and old ips. The unannounced project must be the one phil was referring to(late last year )when he made mention of ms researchs involvemnt with the studio.
The studio is not that big, It was making the spy game that they tease at E3. Now it's been pulled back and they have stared Gears of war development. The new IP that they where working on is probably dead or not coming for a long time. Since they started developing the new gears now it will probably won't be out until 2016 or 2017...
Thats around the time ps will get games,man what a year its going to be.
I must admit, as a Sony and playstation lover, micrsoft is investing smartly in the xbox one, more so than sony with the ps4... All so in terms of new ip's and old franchises.. Seems to me the xbox one will have more high quality AAA. Games than the ps4, for someone like me that owns a ps4, it makes me wonder if my purchase was the right one... Good for Xbox brand I guess
This is why I'm waiting till both companies play their cards before I decide which gets my money.
Sony has to straighten out their financial situation before they commit to any other IP's we know about. Mark Cerny stated. "It' cheaper to make Indie games that have a big profit". Triple AAA exclusive games cost alot of money. @Guyman Eventually I would buy both consoles because I don't like to miss out on exclusives the console may have.
lol.. All that fake hype, and the Boners still don't see the trend. The IQ must be below average.
