Head of Xbox Phil Spencer answered questions from fans on his Twitter last night and revealed some interesting clues as to what Microsoft is preparing for this year’s E3 and beyond.
One fan asked him “which now-marginalized genres do you think might see a resurgence this gen?” To which Spencer responded “RTS on console.” This is particularly interesting since we recently learned via a job listing on Microsoft’s careers page that Microsoft Studios is looking for someone "to help build and lead the team for a new AAA title within an established and well-loved strategy game franchise."
Age of Empires and Halo Wars are two RTS franchises that fit that description.
Help MS god if Age of Empires 4 will be a X1 exclusive or X1 will be a lead development platform for it. They are a bunch of c*nts. Age of Empires Online failed miserably. Meanwhile Age of Empires franchise on PC sold over f*cking 20M copies. You must be a really stupid bunch of c*nts in order no to make RTS on PC. F*ck you MS. I whish that Linux beats your Windows ass, and PS4 will f*ck up your sales of x1.
The idea of RTS on X1 is ridiculous, as strategy games require very good CPU. X1 CPU is crap, total f*cking crap. Not even taking into account how unpopular RTS are among consolites. You can't do a good RTS on X1 even if they add a full mouse/keyboard support. Adn god save them if they try to addopt the controller for rts. Seriously, how retarded they must be if they still go on with this. It was tried and failed one thousand times already.
They don't f*cking deserve to be in gaming. Right was the people who said that MS had done everything it could to kill PC Gaming.
