Microsoft Shuts Down Vancouver-Based Studio

Looks like Microsoft has shut down its internal Vancouver, laying off 35 people who were responsible for a Kinect shooter.

A tipster contacted Kotaku to share the news, which has been confirmed by several former Microsoft Game Studios Vancouver employees on Twitter.

    what fucking joke of an article....

      hey, it got you to up the page view count. i guess it doesn't matter what's in it.

        that's it isn't it. No names, no games, twitter for a source and a shoddy picture. Oh and an error in the first sentence.

    I applied for a job there last year, even went over there for an interview, in the end they told me that they didn't feel I was creative enough for a technical design position, kind of a blessing in disguise because then I wouldn't have went off and made this instead: http://store.steampowered.com/app/208600/

      Looks like you may have made the better game.
      Here is one thing it lacks colour, the moon is full of colour but NASA constantly use black and white images and clone or blur over areas with artificial strutures.
