I liked phils emphasis on xbox isn't going anywhere. Love that they finally bought some new studios and building one. Can't wait to see what they all end up making.

I can see "We Happy Few"'s team doing this for the funding, and the other three are proven MS Teams or completely new. But Ninja Theory seems a bit off, especially after Hellblade was a timed PS exclusive.



Watch me stream games and hunt trophies on my Twitch channel!

Its good that they are expanding although The initiative is terrible name for a studio. Sound like some VR or something different studio.

Yes this was really good. 

Also, even if far away, I really liked them letting people know that Game Console is not going away by revealing their team is already working on next console.



Very interesting development. To be honest, I think this is in preparation for game pass (which I think will become very important eventually - subscriptions that give you acces to loads of content has been the development in every other entertainment industry and it will happen to games as well). The more content you make yourself, the less you have to pay to other parties to get additional content. It's the same reason Netflix and Prime Video spend billions of dollars each year on original programming - they are trying to become less dependent on external content creators (and they are succeeding at it too). I expect Sony will eventually launch a similar service as well.

Basically, I expect we'll see consolidation of studios in the coming years. More purchases and merges.

EDIT: BTW, who is this "Micorosoft" you are talking about? New key player in the industry?

The Coalition and The Initiative sound more like factions of a Bungie game.

The Covenant, The Flood, The Hive, The Fallen, The Arbyter, The Cartographer...



I think this was one of Microsoft's best announcements this E3. They're really bolstering up their 1st party studio count. Which only means more exclusives for them. I think they're going to tear up on the next Xbox, whatever form it takes.



They’ve still got a long way to go before they’re at the same level as Sony and Nintendo. But it’s a solid start.
