Microsoft Announces Halo Infinite With Tiny Teaser

Microsoft Announces Halo Infinite With Tiny Teaser

Microsoft kept the gaming announcements coming at its Xbox E3 press conference where it announced a series of studio acquisitions meant to bolster the original gaming content emerging from the console maker. These include games such as Doom Eternal, Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls 6, Halo Infinite, and Gears of War 5.

Microsoft is adding five new game studios, one it is creating in Southern California and another four it is buying, Xbox team chief Phil Spencer said.

"We are now at a moment of exceptional creativity in gaming", said Spencer.

Microsoft were consistently pull out shocks and nice surprises, including a trio of new Gears games.

Sergeant Zins said he could not comment more on the arrest until prosecutors review the case and decide whether to file charges. The actor was placed in jail around 4:00am local time and both men were later released after posting bail of $5,000 Dollars .

At its E3 event, Microsoft shined a spotlight on upcoming Xbox One games from third-party publishers. The new style, headed by art director Nicolas Bouvier, will be based on fan feedback and the most iconic parts of the Halo franchise. We've been given the freedom to explore, try new things and operate like an independent studio, with the backing from one of the biggest companies in the world to do something bold and different. Spencer said Microsoft is "dedicated to perfecting your experience everywhere you want to play; your Xbox, your PC and your phone".

In the same keynote, Microsoft announced it has bought Playground Games, the developer of the Forza series, with which it has worked closely for years.

"Our growth strategy is to continue to expand the worlds that players love, while developing all-new exclusive games that deepen their engagement with our platform".

As such we'll be watching with great intent to see if there are any new announcements for games and franchises that're already established as well as perhaps some new fighters that Microsoft could have on the horizon. The knock-on effect from that though is that not only is there a lack of interest in Xbox in Japan, but western players who enjoy Japanese games have no reason to pick up an Xbox One. More to come as we know it. Game streaming and game hosting could potentially be a big booster for the company's Azure cloud business.
