Ensemble Studios is getting shut down :(

Posted by Sankar on September 22, 2008

Ensemble Studios, the studios behind the successful Age of Empires series and games like Age of Mythology is apparently closing down. I just read about this earlier today and it was definitely a shocker. The age of empires series is one of the most popular RTS games and a very profitable one too. Currently, they are working on a RTS version of Halo called Halo Wars. It looks like Microsoft Game Studios (which owns Ensemble Studios) is shutting it down after the completion of Halo Wars 😦

Check out the post here.

I just hope that they are just being absorbed into MSG and not really being shut down…

    This should be a major warning to any successful game studios who get approached by Microsoft – they are NOT a reliable “safe harbor” partner.

    Commercial success is of no concern to Microsoft after their bean counters run your business through their black box analysis.

    This is classic corporate predation – “buy your successful competition, then shut them down”.

    As a customer of many games, I urge any successful games studios to decline any offers of ownership from Microsoft – your days of development will soon be counted short.

  4. Do not buy each individual one clothe themselves in unique shop. For anyone who is mostly of the basic, tell whilst go to go shopping your own dresses while in the exact retail store. They will absolutely supply you with a lower price, if your almost all persons in the wedding occasion say yes to employ a retail store looking, such as the star of the wedding, the honour along with the floral females. The charge are going to be a lot less in the event almost everyone buy gowns in a unique shop. You could must also take your spending budget into account, and try out your best to purchase a budget maid-matron of honour attire.

  5. Hello, very interesting research. I am curious about the part when ice is compressed. If ice was in an confined area, and could not escape, then compressed by an enormous amount of ice from above, like a giant glacier, how much could ice be compressed? If the pressure was enough, could the ice in a confinded area be crushed and crumble under massive compression, thus losing structure? Or would the massive compression cause heat, making the ice melt? Come on
