Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Micorosft Studios E3 Expansion - 5 New 1st Party Studios (Ninja Theory, Playground Games, Undead Labs)

All of the acquired studios are known for making single player experiences. Forxa and SoD do have a multiplayer component but they are mostly SP games.

Low key best part was MS buying studios. Orgasmed everytime they money hatted a new studio.

Rest in peace Ninja Theory :(



Predicted 15+ million lifetime-sales for God of War:

This is the roadmap xbox needed, it shows they are thinking of the future of xbox.

However new games from these studios wont be out until Xbox Two.



The Ninja Theory acquisition had me shook! Just came out of nowhere! Very solid acquisitions, this is what MS needed to do in order to reinvigorate my faith in single-player experiences on Xbox

Shame about Ninja Theory, I liked them.



This is pretty good, but instead of complusion studio or Ninja theory (possibly both) they should've bought blue hole or High-Rez studio. It would be intresting to see State of decay 3, Hell blade 2, Forza Horizon 4 all launch window Xbox 2 games.

In my opinion: Microsoft should rather develop (more) good own games, instead of buying multi-studios -.- For that reason ... its sad, there will never be a "Heavenly Sword 2" in future, no chance now.

Everyone buys studios. This isn't unique to MS. How would you suggest they make more games when all of their studios are occupied already?

FH4 is coming this year isn't it? And I would have thought that they all get the chance to make a new IP.



wasn't the whole deal of Ninja theory making hell blade was to deliver an independent AAA game, Huh i guess that experiment failed. Its a shame that the dream of Heavenly Sword 2. This is why Sony likes to keep the IP, now Hell Blade 2 will be Xbox exclusive.
