Gamasutra reports that Ensemble Studios co-founder Tony Goodman and a number of Ensemble veterans have formed a new studio called Robot Entertainment.

Ensemble is best known for its successful PC strategy series, Age of Empires, and more recently Xbox 360 exclusive RTS Halo Wars.

Microsoft recently announced the closure of the studio, but has confirmed one of the new studios formed from ex-Ensemble staffers will be working with Microsoft on Halo Wars post release.
