Microsoft Studios is working on four new game properties, according to the resume of the studio’s senior product manager and product planner Jonathan Browne.

“I have been the primary product manager on four unannounced new IP and have been a key contributor to bringing these IP from the very early concept phase through green light to production,” reads his resume.

Browne has been at Microsoft’s Vancouver studio (which we’re assuming is the recently unveiled Black Tusk Studios) since 2010.

Thanks for the tip, Zero.

      Nono, 3 FPS and 1 TPS, or if MS spice it up a bit 2 FPS and 2 TPS ;)

      All our four shooters? Based on what? Popularity of the genre because Microsoft only owns 3 shooters and Gears and Halo have been the only ones that come out every couple of years easily sale millions each. Their porfolio of titles is slime but your comment use ridiculous and baseless.

    Now let’s see how many genres these hit. More importantly, let’s see how many of these launch with the Xbox.

    Watch this be all shooters or kinect games with no substance.

    Somehow i really didn’t interested with that . 4 new IPs ? come on, we all know if not kinect game, its 3rd or 1st person shooter games .. seriously M$ exclusive games suck

  • Elvick

    Unless they’re as interesting as Kameo or Viva Pinata, then I don’t care. Give me Kameo 2. D:<

    And if they are interesting, how long will they even support them? One game? Then back to Halo, Fable, Gears and Forza?

    MS is going to have to really push out tons of things for me to even consider them again.

    Hopefully something that separates Xbox a bit more authentically. I’m of the party that grew tired of Halo after they took the amazing ODST and just went back into typical affair, and Gears of War was a series that I thought the first one just awesome enough on its own that I didn’t pursue the following titles.
    I absolutely loved Alan Wake though, and I mean loved. I thought that was one of the finest games of the gen, and took what Microsoft’s earliest philosophy was, which is mature, complex games, and absolutely nailed it perfectly. If it’s anything in that direction, be that in story-telling or protagonist growth or just something dark and f-ed up, I will certainly open up my mind to them again.
    …that is, if Xbox Live goes free also.

    These comments give me hope in the fact there are actually still real gamers left in the world.

    Even though I agree with many of the comments here, I’d like to think MS might turn things around and surprise me.

    With that said, I can’t go against the company’s past track record, and in the last few years, they haven’t done much to impress me when it comes to new IPs.
