Something is brewing at Microsoft, in the form of a new title for "one of the most popular video games of all time," most probably a new Minecraft or a spin-off for the franchise.

Hmmm, create together.. i guess like you said, Minecraft.

Or on the other hand Kinect Adventures for Xone since it sold 24 million copies.

The job spec mentions the community that is 'the most active and passionate in the world.' So yeah, I have to go with Minecraft 2 or a spin-off.

What's interesting is that Microsoft genuinely have a vision of this as more than just a game sequel but a full platform so I'd like to know what they've got in mind. I speculate that maybe it's for learning skills in a 3D world. Also good to read that it is for multiple platforms but I hope this means more than just PC, Xbox and Windows Phone and will mean Mac, Nintendo, PlayStation, Android and iOS. Maybe this year's Minecraft Story game will give us a clue about the different things that can be done with it.

Yeah its probably Minecraft. I don't care for Minecraft at all.

And here I was getting excited we'll get some beast old-skool games. COME ON!

JohnnyBadfinger1277d ago

Brute Force 2 and or CONKER! confirmed!

amiga-man1277d ago

Pacman the guerilla wars is my bet.

andibandit1277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

3D Tetris

on a more serious note I
wouldnt put to much into a job-ad, but anyways, having read it, how do you guys conclude that there's talk of a "New" title?

nX1277d ago

I never liked Minecraft but I'm still excited to see what a multi-billion dollar company like MS can do with it. Mojang became pretty lazy so it was time that something changes.

there are not many big IP's MS owns, so it cant be anything serious.

Can't wait till you disappear forever. Is Latvia really such a huge and boring dump of a country that you spend all your time trolling online?

Svinya1277d ago

All hail Abriael, the master of job postings and overused click bait adjectives!!

* Minecraft: Spinoff game exclusive to XB1.

Basically Minecraft + Updated graphics + new gameplay enhancements and options.

Age of Empires 4 or Age of Mythology 2 will be great to showcase during the windows 10 event.

christocolus1277d ago

If MS plans to show off dx12 at their conference then they may do so with AOE, AOM or an Epic developed title. Can't wait to see what they planned though.

Metallox1277d ago

This year will be the 10th anniversary since the launch of Age of Empires III. Could make sense, and I'd love to death that announcement.

Septic1277d ago

Age of Empires with smartglass integration would be sick

RiseofScorpio1277d ago

Kinect support would make RTS work way better on XB1.

Omran1277d ago

One man can dream :

Red Alert 2 I know the IP belong to EA but I hope they
will have another game similar to the second one at least !

Septic1277d ago

Oh man. Red Alert 2. My favourite RTS of all time.

Kirov reporting.

Immorals1277d ago

Ra2 with Yuris revenge is in my top 3 games ever.

Omran1277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

Septic :

yeah it was my favorite along with stronghold crusader

Immorals :

yeah definitely, the campaign was awesome in red alert 2

Well I'm bored to death with Minecraft these days, when you play it for months straight on and off for years like me you realize how little there is to do but make things that someone else has already made. The first time I played Minecraft it was so amazing to me and kind of reminded me of Animal Crossing which is awesome. Terraria is where I'm spending my time right now, it feels more interesting for me right now. But yeah a more feature rich Minecraft would be awesome with more thought into the world and actual quests or an actual point other than building block worlds. But of course this next Minecraft probably won't come to PS4 if Microsoft themselves are the ones creating it instead of Mojang.

nX1277d ago

I agree, Terraria is a much better 'game' than Minecraft. I hope Microsoft develops Minecraft 2 as a gaming experience, not just a building experience.

DragoonsScaleLegends1277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

Yeah I liked Minecraft when it was new and fresh but now it lacks to much to be that entertaining unless of course your new to the game or if your on PC and like the mods available but those got old real fast for me. It definitely needs more to do than just building in the sequel.

Father__Merrin1277d ago

kinect powered minecraft? would be fun

DarkOcelet1277d ago

It would if the kinect works probably because other than the voice command , it sucks.

Svinya1277d ago

Oh shut up dude. D4 and Fantasia beg to differ. You're such an annoying stealth troll.

F0XHOUND1277d ago

Minecraft 2, exclusive.

I have no interest in that, bring back a classic IP and I'm in! Maybe a RARE title like, Conker's bad fur day?

qwerty6761277d ago

timed exclusive yes

lifetime exclusive no

the smart thing to do would be to release it on xbox and pc first and then the rest of platforms months later.

they would probably get a lot of xb1 sales off that.
