Microsoft is looking to return to the realm of RTS games with their new studio Decisive Games under Microsoft Game Studios.
According to a job listing from Microsoft’s website Decisive Games is a team focused on world class strategy game development for Windows and Xbox. There’s no word on what title they’re working on, but the ad does ask for the prospective employee to have the ability to write “clean, efficient, readable, portable, and reliable code.”
You can’t read to much into that being that those are skills any Software Engineer should have, but it could mean a few things. After all they are working on a “beloved strategy game franchise for Windows/Xbox.”
Plans for an Age of Empires return? Halo Wars 2? Phil Spencer did say that RTS on consoles would make a resurgence on current-gen systems. What do you think?
