Microsoft doubles number of game studios, teases new Halo

A new Xbox-exclusive game from Dark Souls developer From Software was shown, titled Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

Their presser was chock-full of game announcements and trailers, including a new Forza Horizon, new Halo, new Gears, and updates on Crackdown and other titles.

Three years later, Xbox's backward compatibility for older games has become one of the console's defining features.

Although no gameplay footage was shown, it can be considered pretty damn likely that Rash, Pimple and Zitz will return to lay another tongue-lashing down on the Dark Queen.

This week, Microsoft is in Los Angeles where the company announced that they acquired five gaming studios and that they are working on next-gen consoles as well as a new game streaming service. Forza Horizon 4 will launch on October 2nd.

Microsoft set out to make a statement at this year's E3: the games are back.

Phil Spencer took to the stage today to confirm that Xbox have opened a brand new studio dedicated to creating new IP and new worlds. In Santa Monica, studio The Initiative will be lead by former Crystal Dynamics head of studio Darrell Gallagher.

Let's face it. First party exclusive titles haven't been the Xbox's strong point for this console generation. It is being developed by DLaLa Studios in partnership with Microsoft's Rare Studio. And that's about all we know so far.

The developer stressed that it still has a "long way to go" before Halo Infinite comes out.

This differs from the current "Ready to Start" system because FastStart uses machine learning based on how gamers play each game.

We got a chance to see our first look at the Division 2's new setting, Washington D.C., in the latest trailer for the game at Microsoft's E3 press conference.
