At Microsoft's E3 2018 showcase, Xbox division head Phil Spencer confirmed that new Xbox console (s) are in development. This is why they made a decision to settle with on a Western publisher after years of working with Japanese publishers like Bandai Namco and Sony. It later said the game would be an open-world action RPG.
We are dedicated to perfecting your experience everywhere you want to play - your Xbox, your PC and your phone.
And that kind of thinking was behind arguably the biggest news of the presser: Microsoft Studios' acquisition of five developers to come under their umbrella and produce Xbox exclusives, something that fans have been crying out for for years. "With "Sea of Thieves" and "State of Decay 2" - I will look you in the eye and I have no way to A/B test this - we sold more copies of those games than we would have if the game wasn't in Game Pass", he said.
Other titles unveiled include Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, a new franchise from Activision set in feudal Japan; Kingdom Hearts III, marking the series' first appearance on an Xbox console; Devil May Cry 5; and Cyberpunk 2077, a new franchise from the creator of The Witcher games.
Although we can't be entirely sure of what the distant future holds for gaming but it seems that for Microsoft consoles will be a part of it for a while yet. They are now known all over the world for their work on the Souls series but with Sekiro, they are taking a completely different approach to an action game.
"When we started this project, the team's vision for the game was ambitious - so much so that we knew we had to build new tech to fully realize our goals for Halo Infinite".
Meanwhile, Microsoft is also working on a "cloud network" to stream console-quality gameplay to an array of Internet-linked devices including smartphones and tablets, according to Spencer.
Included in the Microsoft arsenal is the use of artificial intelligence to make game worlds and characters more realistic. Microsoft and Electronic Arts used their own pre-E3 press conferences to tease us about their plans to offer game streaming services that, in theory, would offer console-level games to smartphones and other devices.
