Fudging the "5 new studios" number a bit but Ninja Theory and Compulsion are good to see.

Around the Network

Xbox finally learned they need new studios. I expected one or two, but five is impressive.
Assuming they don't just get shut down, or get few funding. Hope they get a blank check.

  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

5 studios! Where the haters at now?

The Initiative (New studio)
Ninja Theory (Hellblade)
Playground Games (Forza Horizon)
Undead Labs (State of Decay)
Compulsion Games (We Happy Few)

But does that happen AFTER games have already gotten trailers and promotions for all available systems?
That would seem a bit redundant.

This isn't exactly the same, but IIRC Watch Dogs was shown with no consoles in 2012 (or 13). And then got a Sony deal. You also see COD trailers for all consoles early on before E3. 

Yeah, that sounds familiar. I think it was the same for Tomb Raider, and then we heard about the timed exclusivity for Xbox One.

Console launch exclusive. PUBG expansion?

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Wow. Ninja theory! Well if ya cant make um,buy um


My youtube gaming page.


Ok so it's not 5 brand new studios per say, but new to being owned by Microsoft, rather.

Still, great move. This should satisfy a lot of people.
This is certainly a case where MS listened to the fans.

Holy shit, this PUBG updates are great. Can't wait.

Ninja theory some months ago: we want to make games free from publishers !!

Gets bought by Microsoft 😁
