The unannounced IP is going places.
Not much is known about Black Tusk Studios’ unnamed AAA title that debuted at Microsoft’s E3 presser last year, except that it will be exclusive to the Xbox One. Now, job listing for a lead writer on the project indicate that Black Tusk is looking to create a “hero’s journey” type of tale.
The listing reads, “We are looking for a seasoned storyteller who can help us bring Microsoft’s next big IP to life. This individual will help us develop the characters, story arc, emotional tone, pacing, dialogue, and flavor of a story that will shape the spirit of this new franchise.”
The writer will “Act as a champion of story, characters, and emotional engagement across the game and game team,” and “create a cast of distinctive, engaging, and imperfect characters that players love (or love to hate)” among other things. Finally, he/she will have to “Define a compelling story that takes the player on a hero’s journey, with a keen eye to story structure and pacing.”
Does this indicate that the first game in this new franchise is still a ways off or are Black Tusk preparing for future games in the series? Stay tuned for more updates in the coming days.
