I had to leave a few studios out of the poll due to a limitation of 10 choices. So please leave a comment here if you selected Other.

For me, I am most excited about what they do with Double Fine. Also, Obsidian have a pretty decent track record as well. Then Ninja Theory's Hellblade 2 looks amazing and we've only seen a teaser so far.



The idea of any future RPGs Obsidian making will only be on Xbox (consoles) is just the perfect scenario for me. Can’t wait to see their talents with the full backing of MGS.



You should probably write out Microsoft Game Studios. MGS is heavily tied to Metal Gear Solid. I thought this was an announcement about potential Metal Gear Solid developers for next gen -_-



Turn 10 csuse Forza Horizon 4 was fap worthy followed by Obsidian

Fixed OP. Sorry about that. 



Technically it's Xbox Game Studios now.

Also you're missing their new RTS studio called "World's Edge"

My Ranking

  1. Obsidian Entertainment - Amazing RPG developer that has had a rough ride, often screwed by time constraints or budget so I'm excited to see what they can do with a bigger budget and more time, current rumours are that they're planning an Elder Scrolls/Pillars of Eternity-like game. 
  2. Playground Games - Amazing studio, Forza Horizon is one of the best racing IPs out there and I can't wait to see what they do with the rumoured Fable project, I expect great things from them.
  3. The Initiative - Mostly an unknown but the staff they've been hiring is top quality, also speculation that their title is Perfect Dark which I'd be happy with.
  4. InXile Entertainment - These are a wildcard, I think they'll surprise a lot of people and recently they've been hiring for an AAA RPG and making some nice hires, Brian Fargo is a huge name in the RPG industry.
  5. Rare - I'm excited to see what they do next gen, they had a rough start to this generation but they're finally back on track and I'm eager to see what other new IPs they come up with.
  6. 343 Industries - Would have probably been lower but I'm a fanboy of Halo, they have a lot to prove with Infinite though.
  7. Ninja Theory - Interesting studio to watch, they tend to experiment with new IPs and Hellblade II looks great, also I hope one day they go back to Kung Fu Chaos
  8. The Coalition - I've been happy with their output this generation but I kinda wish they would make a new IP, even though I thought Gears 5 was great.
  9. Undead Labs - 50/50 for me, I've never played a State of Decay but I hope to see a fully AAA State of Decay 3 from them, fix their technical issues and I might be interested.
  10. Double Fine - Never played a game from them, Psychonauts 2 looks good though, I'd love to see them do Conker but I doubt they will.
  11. Compulsion Games - Doesn't really interest me but I think they could be a wildcard.
  12. Mojang - They'll stay on Minecraft, not really that exciting but at least Dungeons looks fun so hopefully future spin-offs will be the same.
  13. Turn 10 - Not a fan of Motorsport anymore so I'm not really interested in T10.
  14. World's Edge - Not really a fan of RTS, I've only ever played Halo Wars in terms of RTS.

Technically Forza Horizon series is mostly Playground with assistance from Turn 10 (Engine, Technical, etc), not to diminish Turn 10's role or anything, they do help a lot but it's Playground's project.



Tie between Obsidian, inXile, Playground, Double Fine, and Undead Labs. Entering this gen I didn’t care much for MS first party but they really nailed it with these studios, almost all of them have great history and should continue to do good things.



Playground games (come on Fable!) followed by Obsidian.



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