Let's see if this new game can recapture that title's nostalgic magic. No other details were given, apart from Spencer saying it would be "Master Chief's greatest adventure yet". He says that Forza Horizon 4 will be here on October 2, 2019. We know it'll be developed by 343 Industries, and it'll apparently use a new engine called "Slipspace".

Three years later, Xbox's backward compatibility for older games has become one of the console's defining features.

VisitScotland said at the time that the move would boost tourism to Skye, and was the first time a video game "world" had been twinned with a real place.


Microsoft and Electronic Arts revealed they are working on their own game streaming services.

Once the acquisitions are complete, Microsoft will have 11 game development studios.

Microsoft had its big E3 showcase today to show off everything Xbox, and it wasn't short on big reveals. By joining the team at Microsoft Studios, Compulsion will have the resources, platform and freedom to take even bigger creative risks and create even more ambitious worlds with its future projects. Also, the company's hardware team "is deep into architecting the next Xbox console", he said.


At the end of the day, it's the games that determine the overall success of a console.

During Microsoft's E3 2018 briefing, a new Battletoads game was announced.

It is hard to deny the success of the PS4 and Sony, especially when compared to Microsoft and their Xbox One.


The third entry in Lara Croft's origin story came out swinging with a new gameplay trailer at Microsoft's E3 event. These include games such as Doom Eternal, Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls 6, Halo Infinite, and Gears of War 5.
