The Black Tusk Studios wiki last edited by forheiszombie on 01/27/14 12:54PM View full history

Previously known as Microsoft Vancouver, the company is composed of many ex-EA developers. Black Tusk's stated goal is to create a new Microsoft-published franchise that will become "the next Halo".

At Microsoft's E3 2013 press event, a brief trailer was given of an Xbox One game in development at Black Tusk, showing an armed man breaking into a skyscraper in Shanghai,China. However, no title or release date was disclosed, and little is known about the nature of the game.

It was announced in early 2014 that Black Tusk would be the new developers of future titles in the Gears of War franchise, after Microsoft purchased the IP rights from Epic Games. Series producer Rod Fergusson would join Black Tusk as the studio manager.
