today that Microsoft Game Studios
is opening a European branch. The branch is being opened to more effectively communicate with Microsoft's European studios and partners, including Lionhead
, Real Time Worlds
, and Bizarre Creations
. It will be based in Reading, UK, hometown of Ricky Gervais (who is actually featured in Microsoft training videos
). The new branch will be headed by Phil Spencer
, currently Microsoft Game Studios' general manager. Spencer will retain his current position while heading up the new European branch.
Hopefully, this means we'll see Fable 2
