Fans of word games should be happy with the news that the next title from the Microsoft Casual Games team will be called Microsoft Ultimate Word Games. The decision was made by the general public, who have been voting for the past severals weeks for their favorite game concept from the studio.
The other losing concepts were for a Hearts game, a Bubble title, a casino-based game, and a return to a chess title. However, it was the idea for the word game that got the most votes:
"With several word games, multiplayer tournament modes, and new Daily Challenges every day, Microsoft Ultimate Word Games is the best collection of word games you'll find."
There's no word on when the game will be released, but Microsoft is looking for more feedback from people who sign up to join the Microsoft Casual Games Inner Circle program. Microsoft says:
"As a member of our Inner Circle, we will gather your opinions and feedback on game features and designs, and you'll get early access to beta builds. We look forward to working with you on creating Microsoft Ultimate Word Games and hope to have more opportunities for our community to vote on which games we make in the future."
