Microsoft guzzles up game studios and teases Xbox One game streaming

Let's see if this new game can recapture that title's nostalgic magic. Running on the Slipspace Engine and developed by 343, the scope looks huge with what seems to by a dynamic time cycle to be hinted at as well. "In Halo Infinite, the game will focus on the Master Chief and continue his saga after the events of Halo 5", studio head Chris Lee wrote in a blog post. Not only that, we are dedicated to perfecting your gaming experience everywhere you want to play: "on your Xbox, on your PC, or your phone".

Plus, the Seattle platform holder will acquire Undead Labs, the developer behind State of Decay 2, and Compulsion Games from Montreal, which is preparing to release We Happy Few on August 10.

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. I'm thrilled to join the Microsoft Studios family as it is clear to me that the gaming team at Microsoft shares my passion for storytelling, world-building and creative exploration.

Microsoft has been working on game streaming technology for several years now. The company also revealed FastStart, a new way to download games and begin playing them quicker.

Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Savannah Phillips at Beaufort Polo Club
Of course Princess Charlotte stole the show as she made a decision to do a headstand in the grass, leaving her mum giggling. Prince George was at the centre of a Twitter storm after the three-year-old was pictured playing with a toy gun.

Last but by no means least, we got confirmation of a new Battletoads gaming coming in 2019 and two dollops of Sea of Thieves DLC on the way later this year. But Microsoft is clearly trying to push its development potential further with the creation of another studio dubbed The Initiative.

They also noted that Master Chief will have a more prominent role in the game than he did in Halo 5.

Surprising news? Not exactly, but many industry observers have lingering doubts about the future of Microsoft-branded hardware under CEO Satya Nadella. According to him, Microsoft is now building the next Xbox consoles, so we have confirmation that the company is already preparing for the next generation.
