Next Microsoft Xbox could be slated for 2020

Microsoft's Xbox E3 conference live stream set for 1 pm PDT; Gears of War, Halo 6 and maybe some fighting games en route?

The slew of game announcements included the return of the Holy Trinity - Halo, Gears, and Forza - and new studio acquisitions laid down a marker for the future.

Microsoft is working on a game-streaming service that will deliver "console quality gaming on any device".

Microsoft officials said the company is building a new Santa Monica, Calif. -based studio which it's calling "The Initiative."

Gears of War 4 was a reboot of the series, covering events set 25 years after the original games. Now, the argument could be made that this is also due to a lack of stellar, story-driven, single player games, which is where Sony is seeming to excel.

Undead Labs have achieved success with State of Decay 2 on Xbox Game Pass, so it's little surprise to see that studio being bought out by Microsoft.

Featuring a setting based on the landscape of Great Britain, Forza Horizon 4 is also the first Forza Horizon game to feature a truly dynamic open-world environment - with weather and terrain conditions being altered by a new seasons-based weather system.

What's more, Ubisoft said it has "revamped" the Dark Zone PvP mode, though no other details about what's new were shared. One of the big criticisms of The Division 1 was that it did not offer enough end-game content for players.

Speaking on stage during Microsoft's keynote at the E3 gaming conference in Los Angeles, Microsoft gaming chief Phil Spencer revealed that there will be new generations of the Xbox console.

Microsoft's Xbox division is laying the groundwork for a game streaming service that zaps games directly to any device, whether it be your console at home or your phone on-the-go.

Microsoft is to double the size of its first-party development ecosystem, by acquiring four studios and creating an entirely new studio. We are taking the time we need to make the right game and are making changes to how we approach things this time around.

"We embarked on a quest to find creative teams that have the mastery of our art", Spencer said. But the company continues to put more resources into the Xbox consoles and its gaming business overall. Additionally the firm shared news that it has implemented a new FastStart ability for Xbox One, it has added five new studios to its roster, and that it is already "deep into architecting" the next Xbox.

Obviously the major console makers, such as Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo, have to consider the future of gaming and how games are likely to be played.
