Why do this thread keep popping up like Microsoft hasnt been doing anything. Microsoft in order to better compete next gen needed more studios. They shouldnt get rid of their current IP, they need to reinvest like what they are doing with the next Halo. Microsoft need Halo, gear and Forza but what they needed was other studios to make other games to supplement what they have already.
They also have a superior subscription model which is still unmatched in the industry.
While exclusivity will always have a place, crossplay, play anywhere and subscrition model is the future. Microsoft is doing everything right at the moment and if they keep this momentum they could gain lots of ground next generation.
