"Whilst continual development of their core releases will be maintained, the successful candidate will be joining at a time where the studio is looking to move into new areas and develop new IPs for future platforms"
Sounds very much like they are still doing the Kinect Sports type things, but Microsoft is perhaps making use of them for some other things.
The multiplayer was solid, where they messed up was the environments and the terrible inclusion of vehicles. I think vehicles is something every FPS developer needs to take from Halo's book as it is perfection for me. If they do that this time around and make a decent single player experience with co-op they will make a great game. Laptop guns will never get old.
