Hellblade developer Ninja Theory and four others acquired by Microsoft

Revealed in the worst possibly way in an infamously awful conference, it's been an uphill battle for Microsoft to make any ground up on Sony and the PlayStation 4.

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 has announced the establishment of The Initiative, a new first-party studio led by former Crystal Dynamics head Darrell Gallagher.

Infinite should be the next mainline Halo game so it's fair to say it should be a shooter.but at this point we never really know what 343i will do next.

There were some big ones, too.

The biggest takeaway, however, was obviously Gears of War 5.

Microsoft commenced its E3 panel this year with the announcement of Forza Horizon 4.

Anyways, Microsoft showed off the next game called Halo Infinite yesterday which will be running on a new engine called SlipSpace but there were many details left out of that presentation, notably the release date.

Meanwhile, Microsoft gave a first look at several games coming soon to multiple platforms, including Cyberpunk 2077 (from Witcher III developer CD Projekt Red), Tom Clancy's The Division 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Dying Light 2. The atmosphere it tees up is both charming and eerie at the same time, and we can't wait to see where Ori's next adventure takes us. "You can buy or subscribe or buy and subcribe".

Microsoft is hard at work developing the future of gaming with artificial intelligence technology, Spencer said. The seasons will change for everyone as you play, from snowy winter to sun-bleached summer (though you don't get much of that in Britain).

Spencer said his team is "deep into architecting the next Xbox" in a commitment to console gaming at a time when mobile and personal computer play are soaring.
