Microsoft plans to deliver "console quality gaming on any device"-PC, Xbox, or phone-with a "game streaming network" that the company is developing, said executive president of gaming Phil Spencer at the company's E3 press conference". These include games such as Doom Eternal, Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls 6, Halo Infinite, and Gears of War 5.

New games from Japanese developers were shown too - another surprise, that they were using Xbox's conference to make the reveal at all. Any future content from the handful of studios Microsoft bought is potentially years away.

At its E3 event, Microsoft shined a spotlight on upcoming Xbox One games from third-party publishers. A shared world setup means players can automatically inhabit each other's worlds Test Drive Unlimited-style, with a new quick chat functonality meaning players can also communicate with each other more efficiently.

And that's the reason why I came here - an unselfish environment where they just care about the game. They play Game 4 in Cleveland on Friday. "So to be one of guys, that's what I always wanted".

It brings Undead Labs, Playground Games, Ninja Theory, and Compulsion Games into Microsoft Studios.

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. If this trailer is any indication, the game's development team at 343 Industries intends to right a very critical wrong with this next entry. "We will have some new and unexpected directions to take folks in and I believe the way we achieve that is to build alongside our community, iterating and improving as we go". At the same time, the big players are focusing less on new hardware and more on software - video games that can be turned into long-lived franchises with recurring revenue generated by in-game purchases and subscriptions.

Microsoft gave us a Forza Horizon 4 release date as soon as it revealed the game: you can start playing on October 2, 2018.
