MICROSOFT HAS SUCKED up a clutch of game studios, created a brand new studio called "The Initiative", and expanded its game streaming service in a bid to stick two fingers up at Sony's PlayStation 4. Speaking with major Korean gaming outlet, GameMeca, Hinton claims engineers are aiming to announce the console "next year".

Behind the scenes, the gathering will explore issues like the use of artificial intelligence in games, and streaming console-quality titles from the cloud to devices other than consoles. State of Decay developers Undead Labs are also joining Microsoft, as are Compulsion games who are working on We Happy Few.

"Our answer: we commit and harness the full breadth of our resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play". We are taking the time we need to make the right game and are making changes to how we approach things this time around.
