Microsoft Game Studios expands presence in Vancouver

by Rob Lewis | Gaming

Microsoft Game Studios has launched a website for a new Vancouver location that is reportedly working on a "core" Kinect-based shooter for the Xbox 360.

According to the newly launched site, Microsoft Game Studios Vancouver is dedicated to making games for 'core' gamers, and looking to push the limits of proven and unexplored game development and show the world what's possible on Microsoft's game consoles.

We're fortunate at MGS Vancouver to be able to leverage technology and experience from other proven teams and projects within Microsoft Game Studios. Our sister studios in the first-party core gaming space include Lionhead, Turn 10, and 343 Industries. We also often share resources and knowledge with BigPark Studios, another MGS studio located in downtown Vancouver. Our team is able to take advantage of development support and best practices on Microsoft platforms such as Xbox 360, Xbox Live, and Kinect.

Great news for Vancouver game developers that have got used to studio announcements usually including the words closure and lay-offs. Follow them on Twitter - @mgsvancouver - to stay on top of studio developments.
