Microsoft Buys ‘Forza’ Developer Playground Games

We Happy Few,NoobFeed,Compulsion Games New Halo game announced at E3 2018

From new game announcements, to finally more exclusives - there were a lot of announcements to get excited for. These five join a base that already included 343 Industries (Halo), The Coalition (Gears of War), Turn 10 (Forza Horizon), and Rare (Sea of Thieves), creating something of a war council for Microsoft going forward. "In Halo Infinite, the game will focus on the Master Chief and continue his saga after the events of Halo 5", developer 343 Studios said in a blog post offering more details on the game. While the new trailer we got the chance to see looks lovely, there's no doubt Xbox One X owners should be excited to see the game running in 4K.

Halo comes to Xbox One and PC.

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. We saw a massive, sprawling world with creatures we've never seen before in Halo. Microsoft's intent to acquire Ninja Theory will help ensure the creative team has the resources and freedom to bring more ambitious games like "Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice" to fans. If we had to guess, Microsoft could be working on an Xbox dedicated to streaming alongside and a proper "next generation" Xbox that is more powerful than the Xbox One X.

[Update] Screenshots have been added to the original article. But, it looks as though players will be side-by-side with 343 Industries over the course of development, including being able to playtest the game at certain stages. Also, the company's hardware team "is deep into architecting the next Xbox console", he said.

"With the ultimate freedom to explore and play over 100 great games, Xbox Game Pass delivers our members an incredible value in gaming".
