Xbox Game Studios |OT11| The One with Starfield and Activision Blizzard King

After reading about seasons in AC Shadows I really want seasons even more in Fable. How awesome that would be.

Didnt the entire team basically leave a year or so in? I could be totally wrong on that so please correct me if so. Perfect Dark is one of my most anticipated games though. Im one of very few who loved multiplayer in PDZ on 360… so i cant wait for whatever is next

Ah yes. I do recall people leaving and then Crystal Dynamics came on board to help out. I do get your skepticism very well.

While this may be true I focusing on the timing of all this

I don’t think this studio is that new, it’s just being made public now.

I know the new studio and the closures aren’t really related but I do wonder how many gross jobs were lost vs gained with this studio. Considering this sounds like a heavy hitting AAA studio akin to Naught Dog we can assume this would be 200-300 people which is about equal too if not more than the jobs lost.

I know it’s not apples to apples, but it’s an interesting observation.

Is there a different press release that says who these people are?

Activision is a different publishing arm. They’re under the same parent company but their businesses have little to nothing to do with each other and this studio isn’t “new”, it’s just being made public now.

Opening Posts need to be updated, or will that be saved for the next OT? Not just closures, but projects we now know about, even small things like Castles

I get that… This is more of a timing thing.

I was speculating with my friend on Xbox about Gears 5 and Hivebusters and 6. How we both really dig the new team from Hivebusters. Could TC potentially bring that team into 6? Where in the time line was Hivebusters?

I’d love to see that team a lot more in 6 and since the 5 team has lost a member…

Hivebusters takes place after the attack on Settlement 2, but before Chapter 2 of Gears 5.

It seems Crash related. Hope it’s not, it really seemed the studio was making Spyro, we had some insiders saying this too iirc. Crash has a fourth game, let Spyro have some fun now.

Or Banjo! Yeah, I know, not happening.

I mean, I guess it could be Banjo although it seems more Crash related to me. But it’s purple like Spyro.

I don’t know. TFB_LogoVector_TikiMask-purple.png sounds a lot like studio logo and not a new project, buy hey, who knows?

Would be funny if they did this on purpose to mislead folks thinking it’s Crash, and then it’s Spyro, lol.

Oh, good one!

Spyro and Crash crossover game maybe?
