Microsoft Confirms Xbox 'Scarlet' And New Game Streaming Service

We Happy Few,NoobFeed,Compulsion Games

Spencer announced that Microsoft is adding five game development studios to its Microsoft Studios family. That's changing with the new seasonal focus of Forza Horizon 4. It has acquired U.K. -based Playground Games and has letters of intent to buy Ninja Theory of Cambridge, U.K.; Undead Labs of Seattle; and Compulsion Games of Montreal.

The Xbox event was packed with cinematic snippets or play of 52 games, including new instalments to blockbuster franchises such as "Fallout" and "Halo". Microsoft already supports in-home game streaming from Xbox One consoles to Windows 10 PCs. With the majority having low expectations for Microsoft's E3 showing, some were quietly predicting that it could surprise everyone and steal the show.

Spencer promised that Microsoft is working on "Microsoft AI", new AI systems that will make games more "rich and immersive" in the future.

"We believe these teams have the collective creative power and operational excellence to deliver the next industry game changer", Booty said in a statement (pun maybe intended).

While it did fire the four employees, the company admitted to making false statements about the others, handing out full bonuses. ZTE will have to pay a $1B penalty plus put $400M in escrow to cover future violations and embed a US-picked compliance team.

At the end of the day, it's the games that determine the overall success of a console.

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.

"The original games we create at Microsoft Studios are some of our biggest assets", said Matt Booty, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios. The company did not give any information about the game beyond a teaser trailer, but the name would imply either a Fortnite-like battle royale style game or a persistent world. Then there's Halo Infinite and Gears of War 5, and though new entries in these series both expected, the announcements were exciting nonetheless.
