Microsoft acquires 5 game studios to sharpen game development power

Devil May Cry 5

So it seems that it's finally time for a new chapter in the Halo saga, and it looks like we are getting one with Halo Infinite, which was revealed at the start of Microsoft's press conference.

"We're increasing our investment in existing franchises that you already love", said Phil Spencer, who heads Microsoft's Xbox unit. And Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, its most recent success, was a PlayStation 4 timed console exclusive, although it eventually came out on Xbox One earlier this year. Playground Games Limited is a British video game developer located in the United Kingdom, and the maker of the Forza franchise. Make sure to also check out our E3 preview on the game.

Forza Horizon 4 was also shown, and my goodness does that game look lovely. "This is why we're amplifying our investment in worlds that will deepen your love of Xbox". The last time he played Halo was a few years back on Xbox 360 which was Halo 2 but due to the unavailability of other Halo games on PC, he was disappointed.

Pre-ordering Forza Horizon 4 on Xbox One or Windows 10 will automatically unlock the Formula Drift Car Pack in both Forza Motorsport 7 and Forza Horizon 4.

He said a meeting could take place as soon as the United States was ready and that many European countries had offered their help in making it happen.

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

Playground Games is now working on a brand new open world game that's likely Fable 4, sources say.

Kitao also talked about the short teaser at The Game Awards and how Miyazaki thought it was a little too short to be shown as a teaser. This does unforutnely mean we will have to wait a little longer for the game and in turn means that during their conference Microsoft did not mention a release date.

The Electronic Entertainment Expo 2018 (E3) kicked off on Sunday, with several companies making various gaming-related announcements.
