Microsoft has opened a new London studio geared towards producing new game experiences for Windows 8 tablet devices.

The new studio is headed up by former production director at Rare, Lee Schuneman, and will officially open for business in November.

Schuneman said in a statement, ā€œIā€™m hugely excited by this new venture. Adding a fourth UK-based studio to the incredible roster of talent already in place not only increases our in-region studio presence, but will allow Microsoft Studios to explore the many creative and business opportunities that developing new games and entertainment experiences on Windows 8 tablet devices and platforms will afford.ā€

Thanks MCV.
