If their latest job listings on Gamasutra
are anything to go by, it looks like Microsoft Game Studios
are doing everything they can in order to identify potential titles for Xbox exclusivity - for both the 360 and beyond.
"MGS has a number of successful core franchises: Halo, Fable, Forza Motorsport, and Gears of War. Our job is to add new blood to this stable of AAA franchises. We have huge ambitions for what we want to accomplish, and we need a great producer to be able to help us get where we want to go,"
states the listing. It also goes on to suggest that suitable candidates will be required "to have a thorough understanding of games in the genres we are working in: primarily Shooter and Action-Adventure."
Doesn't look like they're too pushed on originality then.
