Kinect Star Wars worked on by 10 teams, 200+ people

Monday, 2nd April 2012 09:10 GMT By Alex Donaldson

The LinkedIn profile of a senior producer at Microsoft has revealed the magnitude of the Kinect Star Wars development – revealing the game was worked on by ten teams comprising of over 200 people.

Discovered by proven Twitter sleuth superannuation and picked up and archived by NeoGAF, the online resume of the Story & Cinematics team Producer Adam N Joseph reveals that his duties on the title involved supervising “1 PC & 9 External Teams” – ten teams total – and management of “200+ heads.”

His profile also mentions his direct involvement with outsourced work to studios including Rhythm & Hues, Frontier Studios and Skywalker Sound, Lucas’ massive Skywalker Ranch based sound studio.

Kinect Star Wars has been a massive undertaking for Microsoft and is something of a major moment for the Kinect hardware itself. In development since mid 2009 and under the watchful eye of Kinect evangelist Kudo Tsunoda, Kinect Star Wars has always been a major pillar of Microsoft showing what Kinect can do.

The game’s out on tomorrow – and you can expect reviews to hit the internet at 8am GMT on the same day. You can see the launch trailer through here.

    I got this game friday and half the loading screens at the beginning are showing the logos of all the teams that worked on the game, it’s weird really. I thought Assassins Creed Revelations was funny when it topped at 6 developers but this one wins by a country mile.

    200+ people working on casual crap where almost every part is based on existing games… what the hell happened to Lucasarts?

    @2 Forget how many people worked on it, what did you think of the game? It would seem that scince you bought the game, you had an interest to begin with. Just wondering your impressions?

    I think this game will be really good, if the gunstringer is any indication of things going forward this will be a must buy in my book, i hope it turns great, but iam concern of the jack of all trades, and i mean it by the lot of developers involve in the game, tough.
