Microsoft Studios is looking to hire a software development engineer to lead a team developing “a triple-A title within an established and well-loved strategy game franchise.” The listing notes the position is available at its Redmond, Washington headquarters. No further hints as to what it could be were posted. Look over the listing for yourself here. Thanks, CVG.

    Well it isnt halo wars, because it is not a franchise, just one game, but i do hope it really is a new halo wars game, i did like it a lot. But what franchise will it be then?

    @ij 44 Yes, it could very well be, i forgot it was a microsoft ip, but as much as it is a great series, i would rather prefer halo wars, damn you microsoft for shuting down ensemble

    @ij 44 It would have to be. I can’t think of any other MS owned strategy game.

    Age of empires or halo wars.

    P.S.- I really wish they’d have Rare do a Battletoads game.

    Has to be AOE, I can’t think of any other strategy game they own.

    Please be Age of Empires. I put so many hours into AoE 2 and Mythology that it could probably account for 1/8 my life span.
