Meh give KFK to a small dev as a collaboration project. I wonder who is making BattleToads, I wanted them to Reboot it into a 3D character action game.

DLALA Studios is making the new battletoads game I'm guessing since its trailer

This sounds like a really low budget. Why didnt they show anything if its coming out next year?



Some speculation for what i think MS first party releases will happen.
I think 343I will launch Halo Infinite holiday 2019.
I think the Coalition will launch Gears 5 Fall 2019 or early 2020 to be the Xbox Ones goodbye game.
I expect Forza Motorsport 8 in 2019 and 9 in 2021.
We know that Rare ate working on two other ew IPs. They recently started fully developing one of them after Sea of Thieves. I expect the first new IP to be shown at E3 2020 and launch sometime in 2021. I expect the second new IP to come out 2023.
Mojang is working on a new game and i expect that to launch with the new Xbox in 2020.
For Playground I expect Horizon 5 to launch with the new Xbox in 2020 and Fable in 2021.
I think Ninja Theory next game could be a launch exclusive for the next Xbox. Hellblade came out summer last year on PS4/PC and i dont think they were only working on tthe Xbox port all this time.
The Initiative first game I expect to be 2022.
Undead Labs next game I expect to be 2021 but maybe early 2022.
Compulsion Games are probably in the early stages of their next game so im expecting it to come out in 2022.



This is why Ninja Theory is possibly the biggest acquisition by MS outside of Playground
 

They now have full creative freedom and the team appears to be very close. Hellblade was developed over 3 years with only 20 staff and look what they accomplished with so little, it's one of the best looking games using Unreal Engine and just imagine if they used all of their 100 staff members. You know that they have multiple New IP already planned.

Looks like Ninja Theory is already at work for their 1st game under MS, they trademarked "Bleeding Edge" registered in April 2018, It sounds like an action game to me.

Also We Happy Few is releasing multiplatform because it is published by Gearbox, but Compulsion owns the IP so that means that MS owns it as well.



I got up at ridiculous-o-clock and watched the conference this morning.

Nothing extremely surprising given the leaks, but I was very impressed with the conference overall. It wont do anything to right the ship this year, but it looks like they will deliver a lot in 2019.

One has to presume with their purchases 2020 (a possible console launch year) will have a tonne of content.

The fanboy in my wanted Fable, but honestly its best for the franchise they wait until they have solid bones to a real game before announcing it.



starcraft - Playing Games = FUN, Talking about Games = SERIOUS

Ninja Theory acquisition is a great, unexpected move. I like their action games. I hope they'll add 20-30 developers and release AAA games every 2-3 years.

Undead labs is a good devwloper. Their problem is that their ideas with SoD is bigger than what they are capable of. Either they double their number with experts on their weak areas, or they drop SoD franchise. I prefer the later. Keep pumping AA games every 1-1.5 years.

Same goes for Compulsion games. I hope they keep pumping AA games to fill the gaps each year.

Although it leaked before the conference, Playground acquisition is the best news last night. We got two quality AAA studios in one. I just hope that the second studio won't be a Fable factory. Fable needs to happen once every generation.

Microsoft needs to work on a great, easy to use inhouse engine. It will help their smaller studios and might help them get launch exclusive games. Use it for free if your games is 6 months launch exclusive for Xbox ecosystem.

That Inhouse Engine right now is the SlipSpace engine but it would take years for the others to adopt it and I doubt that they would drop Unreal 4 after what The Coalition,Rare, and Ninja Theory have achieved in it.

I can see UndeadLabs doubling from their current 60 devs and focusing on becoming a AAA studio, Compulsion will stay Mid Level depending on what their next project is. They are the only Studio I don't like from the list though.



Damn I just Realized how Loaded 2020 is going to be for MS for the possible next Xbox Console

1. Halo Infinite
2. Forza Horizon 5
3. Rare's New IP
4. Ninja Theory's New IP

2021 could be Flagshiped by Fable 4 & Perfect Dark and 2022 by Gears 6 & The Innitiative's new IP.
