Microsoft Buys 4 Games Studios as Work Starts on Next Xbox

Microsoft's Xbox E3 conference live stream set for 1 pm PDT; Gears of War, Halo 6 and maybe some fighting games en route?

Additionally the firm shared news that it has implemented a new FastStart ability for Xbox One, it has added five new studios to its roster, and that it is already "deep into architecting" the next Xbox.

Halo Infinite is the next in the long-running action series.

"At Microsoft, we are committed to empowering gamers to play the games they want, with the people they want, where they want".

Explore attractive scenery, collect over 450 cars and become a Horizon Superstar in historic Britain. Microsoft says that you will, on average, be able to jump into your new game twice as fast as you did previously on the same net connection. It did not reveal financial terms of the studio acquisitions. Halo Infinite is the next chapter of the legendary franchise that is developed by 343 Industries and created with its new Slipspace Engine. They are now known all over the world for their work on the Souls series but with Sekiro, they are taking a completely different approach to an action game.

Forza Horizon 4 is set to release on the 2 of October of this year for both Xbox One and PC. But the company continues to put more resources into the Xbox consoles and its gaming business overall.

Undead Labs. Seattle-based Undead Labs is the creator of the popular "State of Decay" franchise, enjoyed by millions of fans worldwide.

"We commit the full breadth of resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play".

The future for the Xbox One, and Microsoft's gaming arm as a whole, hasn't been as bright as it is now after a massively successful.

"When we started this project, the team's vision for the game was ambitious", Studio Head Chris Lee said. "This is why we're amplifying our investment in worlds that will deepen your love of Xbox".

"We embarked on a quest to find creative teams that have the mastery of our art", Spencer said.

While the main impression Microsoft was trying to impart with its conference was that this was a platform holder finally ready to counter accusations of a dearth of content, it also had a second, more specific objective: addressing the lack of titles from Japanese developers on Xbox.

As such, Microsoft tells us that they are developing a portfolio of games on every device, including newly announced Microsoft Studios games.

Microsoft has been pretty cagey about what it will be showing off on Sunday, but that Walmart Canada leak from last month suggested that we'll see Forza Horizon 4, Gears of War 5, and a new Splinter Cell.
