Ensemble Studios co-founder Tony Goodman and a number of veterans from the Age of Empires developer have formed a new studio called Robot Entertainment, Gamasutra has learned. Details on the studio's current projects are unavailable, and it's unclear whether Robot Entertainment will maintain a focus on the PC realtime strategy genre in which the Ensemble team specialized, or try new arenas. Microsoft closed Ensemble down once impending Xbox 360 RTS Halo Wars had completed development, in what it called a "a fiscally-rooted decision that keeps [Microsoft Game Studios]on its growth path." Dallas-based Ensemble was founded in 1995 and known mainly for the Age of Empires series of PC-themed strategy titles. Microsoft acquired the studio in 2001.
