Robot Entertainment has announced Microsoft will be publishing third-person fantasy tower defense title Orcs Must Die on XBLA and PC later this summer. "Players on both Xbox Live Arcade and PCs will get their chance to massacre orcs by the thousands soon," Robot Entertainment CEO Patrick Hudson said in a statement. "We're excited that Microsoft shares our orc bloodlust and will publish the game." Robot was formed in 2009 from the remains of Halo Wars developer and Microsoft subsidiary Ensemble Studios. Robot has previously worked on DLC for Halo Wars, as well as Microsoft's free-to-play Age of Empires Online. Announced earlier this year, Orcs Must Die is the first original IP for the studio. The title is being developed using Trinigy's Vision Engine.
