Finding a japanese studio willing to join Xbox will be very hard. I think it will be better if they make a new studio based in Japan.

Just say that you're looking for developers that want to make games aimed more at western gamers(Resident Evil, DMC, Monster Hunter).
I'm sure there're alot of devs in japan that arent interested in making games only with anime aesthetics.

Dude MS building a new team in Japan would be even harder, they also wouldn’t do it unless they can find an experienced studio head that has connections and can recruit talent.

Next year, I think we'll see these games from Xbox studios:
Halo Infinit
Gears Tactics
Age of Empires IV
Fable IV
Forza Motorsport 8
Rare new game
Compulsion new game
Dead Lab new game
Xbox Global Publishing new games

The Initiative new game?
Ninja Theory new game?
XGP 2nd new game?

Expecting more than what we saw for a transitional year was a mistake and setting yourself for a disappointment. Most of the companies are saving their guns for next gen.

Shinobi already said that Rare’s new game is a long ways away, Undead Labs and Compulsion are not going to be ready and I doubt that The Initiative will show something since they are currently smaller that Playgrounds RPG team that has also yet to announce what they are working on.

You can bank on Ninja Theory, and DoubleFine though maybe Inxile and Obsidian too.

I expect something like this:

- Rare I do expect something from Rare next year myself whether it's the new IP they are working on or a collaboration of a Old Rare IP such as Banjo/Perfect Dark I'm not sure.

- Compulsion still will have most their development team on We Happy Few for most of this year so I don't expect anything from them

- Undead Labs I'm not sure if they will be working on more SoD2 DLC or not but I still think it's to soon for them to reveal.

- Doublefine I don't think will be there since they have 2 games shipping late this year, At most a small teaser.

- Ninja Theory are a 100% lock to show off a game and probably a game most years if they have as many teams as we think

- Playground with Fable whilst I think it's a 2022+ game has the power and one of few titles they could reveal to hype up next gen

- Global Publishing should have Killer Instinct 2 and another big AAA 2nd party offering to show and 1-2 A/AA offerings - Any less than that I will think wtf have they up to all this time.

- Obsidian/InXile I think 1 of these will reveal something new as they both have multiple development teams with them both shipping games late this year

- Gears Tactics and confirmed for consoles (Maybe this happens at X019 if it's releasing around May 2020)

- AoE 4 likely to be there but I expect it to remain PC only

- Turn 10 I expect to be there and use Motorsport as a graphical showcase with it been a new console release E3 but I'm not sure if it will make the day one release. It would make sense to be a day one title and big contracting numbers could do it but Motorsport and Horizon may end up overlapping and in turn delaying Horizon into 2022 seems way to long for people to wait for next gen's first entry.

- The Initiative Could show of their first game as a long term game to hype up but like Fable I don't expect anything from them until 2022+

Lmao tons of people are getting extremely salty about Phil Spencer mentioning that he wants to buy a Japanese Studio, jut look at VGChartz article about it the comments blew up.

I hope that MS gets someone big to see some real meltdowns.

Some claim MS has no studios. MS buys and builds more studios.

“but it's not about quality games what MS does with these studios“

Some say Xbox isn't for them because of the lack of Japanese games. MS wants to improve that also with Japanese Studio(s)

“MS doesn't sell in Japan they need no Japanese studios“

Some gamers seem to get more and more uncomfortable to see that Xbox might offer a lot they care about in the future. Great sign for MS, some of them will end with an Xbox or stream their games the next years if they feel too bad to miss all MS Game Studios games

It’s also funny when people say “I’ll just play it on PC”, if they buy a XGS game they are still supporting Xbox and that will only benefit Xbox gamers/console owners.

MS only had 5 1st party studios 2 years ago, if they never expanded by acquisition they would have had to keep relying on 3rd party studios for exclusives another thing that they complain about.

They buying them on their high end PCs.



Thread updated!

I've kept it mostly the same with a few changes; new title (As requested we're now Xbox Empire again with no number), updated banners, upcoming games including a PC section, dumped the partner threads area as that stuff is in my sig and revamped the Xbox Game Studios post, I'll try to do more polls in the future as well.



So I upgraded to Win10 and downloaded the beta Xbox app since I now have GP Ultimate through 2020.

How does account access and sharing work on PC though? If I log in on my PC, it hasn’t kicked me off the Scorpio. But can other people use my PC GamePass without me being logged in on PC?



The hell Xbox? Rukari was awesome, one of their best presenters and did great work with Killer Instinct's community, sucks to see him let go.

Xbox Imo needs new faces, I'd have liked to see Major take more of a step back and let Boyd/Rukari do a bit more but I guess that's not happening...
