I wonder if this company will support Microsoft after they cut them loose. These guys would be awesome making multiplatform games.

Thanks for the link Green. Bubbles. :)

I'm excited that this team is staying together, they are very talented. I'm happy about the news that they're working on Halo Wars content too, since I plan to buy the game and the RTS genre is great for DLC.

It sounds like basically the same people are going to be working on similar projects, but without the same contractual obligations they once had to Microsoft. Sounds like good news for gamers all around.

Haven't they already said that they will be creating two smaller studios from Ensemble's remains, one will be taking care of Halo Wars, and the other will handle other Ensemble title(Age of Empire), they wont be releasing new games for a while though, the teams are there just to keep their previous projects online experience going.

These guys must be pissed off with MS. What better way to show their worth then to make a good PS3 exclusive game.

"I wonder if this company will support Microsoft after they cut them loose. These guys would be awesome making multiplatform games"

Or PS3 exclusives?

Nice, they're going to be making HW DLC. That's a good start. Make some DLC to get everyone warmed up for a full game after.
