Microsoft is opening a new studio dedicated to the development of entertainment titles for Windows 8 tablets.
The new outfit is headed up by Rare’s former production director, Lee Schuneman, who will in turn report to Phil Harrison, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business.
"I'm hugely excited by this new venture," said Schuneman. "Adding a fourth UK-based studio to the incredible roster of talent already in place across Rare, Soho Productions and Lionhead 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."
A recruitment drive for the studio is currently underway. Studio ain’t got a name yet bruv.
