Xbox invests in subscription gaming with new debuts like

Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference was full of interesting first-party reveals, a whole host of third-party world premieres and had an overall vibe that Microsoft were trying to be much better than we'd ever seen them before.

Microsoft's executive president of gaming Phil Spencer says a gaming service accessible from any device is on the cards. The game will be released exclusively on Xbox One and Windows 10. Microsoft's new studios include The Initiative, Compulsion Games, Playground Games, Undead Labs and Ninja Theory.

The UK-based Playground Games, which is the developer behind the Forza racing series, has been a long-time Xbox partner since 2010 and is working on this year's "Forza Horizon 4", said Microsoft.

Microsoft's E3 game was strong this year, but it also highlighted a key point: the publisher is probably gearing up for the next generation of consoles. The latest game in the Forza Horizon series is going to be bringing some interesting new features with it, including a new setting and dynamically shifting seasons. We are taking the time we need to make the right game and are making changes to how we approach things this time around.
