Microsoft Announced They Are Doubling Their Game Development Studios

One of Microsoft's biggest franchises is quite easily Halo and one of the most popular console games since the first Xbox was released.

With all the Xbox announcements made during its press conference, it looks as if Microsoft wants to prove that new consoles aren't the only way we can evolve gaming.

Considering how much effort Microsoft has put into backward compatibility, I would expect the Scarlett devices to support current gen games but offer more advanced features and align possibly with Microsoft's upcoming game-streaming services.

Microsoft announced earlier this year that new game premieres developed by Microsoft Studios would come to Game Pass at the same time they'd be available to buy. Microsoft's new studios include The Initiative, Compulsion Games, Playground Games, Undead Labs and Ninja Theory.

Playground Games, started in 2010, is the developer behind the Forza racing series and has been a long-time Xbox partner.

Microsoft was the first of the major game industry companies to present at E3 2018, and how awesome it was.

Microsoft also announced a US$50 price reduction in all its Xbox One consoles. "We found innovative game designers, master storytellers, and exceptional world builders".

Sekiro now doesn't have any release date or window, but it will be releasing on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

"The Slipspace Engine demo shown at the E3 2018 briefing is the culmination of years of work and is infused with the passion of hundreds of people here at 343 Industries".

The company is also investing AI and cloud resources into gaming technologies.

All the new studios will fall under the Microsoft Studios brand.

A new video game will offer its players the chance to race cars through the Scottish Highlands and on the streets of Edinburgh.
