The newly formed Robot Entertainment has announced it is working with Microsoft Game Studios to develop additional content for Halo Wars and support online gaming and community for both Age of Empires and Halo Wars.

Robot Entertainment has been formed of 45 ex Ensemble employees, including the studio's co-founder Tony Goodman.

"The video game industry is in a state of upheaval," said Goodman, "not just games, but the entire landscape. Everything is changing: where we buy games, how we buy games, how much we pay, how long we play, who we play them with. As a fast-moving independent team of game developers, industry leaders and market experts, Robot Entertainment is ideally positioned to play a transformative role in the industry's future."

In addition to continuing support for the previously mentioned games, Robot will also be developing its own original IP.
