Microsoft Officially Introduces Black Tusk Studios

Today, Microsoft Studios officially introduces its newest first-party developer, Black Tusk Studios, based in Vancouver, British Columbia. Led by Studio Manager Mike Crump and a team of industry veterans, Black Tusk’s passion lies in creating AAA experiences that are emotionally engaging, push the limits of Microsoft’s connected entertainment platforms, and blur the lines between games and film.

"We are very excited to be creating new IP. Black Tusk’s mission is to build Microsoft’s next blockbuster franchise," enthuses Mike Crump. "And to be able to do so at a company with the mandate and resources to think and act big, and to deliver innovative hit experiences at scale is a dream."

Headquartered in the Yaletown district in downtown Vancouver, Black Tusk Studios joins Microsoft Studios’ vibrant roster of first-party developers. Steadily growing during the past year, Black Tusk has been attracting some of the industry’s best and brightest and continues to grow and add talent to its team.

"We are thrilled to be expanding Microsoft Studios in Vancouver, a city that has a rich game development heritage and been chosen as the world’s most livable city eight times in the past ten years," said Hanno Lemke, General Manager, who has executive oversight of the new studio. "We understand that top talent wants to work with the best, and we have had tremendous success in our unwavering commitment to hire the best talent in Vancouver and globally, including key leaders and contributors from top blockbuster franchises throughout the industry."
