Black Tusk Studios opens in Vancouver

Microsoft owned studio said to be working on original IP

Posted on

Microsoft's newest development studio, Black Tusk has opened its doors today in Vancouver, reports GI.

The studio has been given the green light to build a new intellectual property that it hopes will stand among Microsoft's best.

Studio manager Mike Crump confirmed: "We are working on Microsoft’s next big entertainment franchise. We’re not working on an existing franchise, we’re looking to build the next Halo here in Vancouver, for example, which is really exciting. We are building something from the ground up."

The announcement of the studio is good news for Vancouver, that has endured a difficult year. Activision shut down Prototype 2 developer Radical Entertainment in June, and July saw layoffs at local Microsoft and Capcom studios, as well as news that Rockstar would be moving its Vancouver operations to Toronto.
