Black Tusk Studios, a new studio wholly backed by Microsoft have just put up a bunch of new job listings for a brand new Gears of War game, and from what we can gather from these job listings, Microsoft want to make sure the next Gears of War game is superbly epic.
One job listing for a senior rendering engineer states that the role could help develop "bleeding edge new rendering techniques to deliver best in class visuals for a AAA console game," and another suggest that the role in question needs to help shape an "industry leading multiplayer experience."
There has been a lot of talk recently about a possible new Gears of War title, and now that Microsoft have the rights to the franchise, it seems clear that they want it to be a title that Sony fans drool over.
Titanfall is a great title that could lead to a very successful series of games, but it's likely to jump to multi-platform support by the time the second game has been developed. Halo has also been an iconic series for Microsoft, but many gamers feel that the title is losing it's charm, so a new Gears' game could be what Xbox really needs.
So far it sounds very early in development though, so it could be a while before we actually see any true footage for the game, and then even longer still for an actual release date. Hopefully we'll hear more about it at this year's E3.
