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!
Brute Force 2 and or CONKER! confirmed!
Pacman the guerilla wars is my bet.
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?
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?
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.
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.
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.
Age of Empires with smartglass integration would be sick
Kinect support would make RTS work way better on XB1.
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 !
Oh man. Red Alert 2. My favourite RTS of all time. Kirov reporting.
Ra2 with Yuris revenge is in my top 3 games ever.
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.
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.
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.
kinect powered minecraft? would be fun
It would if the kinect works probably because other than the voice command , it sucks.
Oh shut up dude. D4 and Fantasia beg to differ. You're such an annoying stealth troll.
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?
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.
Personally hoping for something not to do with minecraft.
Chrono Break exclusive?
Minecraft RTS confirmed!
Minecraft or Halo, that's kinda all they have that qualifies
If it is a Minecraft announcement then fine, but I will feel a little let down. In my opinion MS were very stupid to dump that much money on a game and developer that has largely jumped the shark.
Finally Vampire Rain Remastered will be revealed.
MS, just let us install, or PC games on our Xbox one, let us play it mouse and keyboard, thats all i ask. Why not the Steam App
Shenmue or it doesn't matter.
Flight Simulator One...
ARE YOU GUYS BLIND?????? LOOK AT HIS T-SHIRT???/ ITS BATTLETOADS!!!!
