Microsoft recently unveiled the game engine Halo Infinite, the newest title in the series, at the E3 2018 convention in Los Angeles, California.

The Xbox event was packed with cinematic snippets or play of 52 games, including new instalments to blockbuster franchises such as "Fallout" and "Halo". Not only that, we are dedicated to perfecting your gaming experience everywhere you want to play: "on your Xbox, on your PC, or your phone".

Financial details of the acquisitions of Playground Games, Ninja Theory, Undead Labs, and Compulsion Games were not disclosed.

Lee said the team at 343 is well aware of the feedback that Halo 5 strayed too far from Master Chief.

As Polygon reports, away from games Microsoft made two significant announcements. Ahead of that there were a large amount of third party and in-house games showcased by Microsoft. Called FastStart, the new Game Pass feature will use smart algorithms to figure out what filed and data a game needs to star and prioritise their downloading, meaning people can start playing the game before it has fully downloaded.

Skull and Bones Gameplay Trailer Showcases Ship Customisation
Recently announced by the publisher is a follow-up to 2017's Assassin's Creed Origins - called Assassin's Creed Odyssey . At E3 2018 on Monday, Ubisoft gave us an extended look at the upcoming pirate sim, and it's looking pretty good so far.

It seems the Xbox One may finally get an exclusive game from Destiny 2 developer Bungie.

After all, the Xbox One X is less than a year old at this point, and that will certainly be a major focus at Microsoft HQ for a while to come. The result is the Slipspace engine, and the E3 trailer demonstrated its "exciting potential".

Compulsion Games. As "We Happy Few" nears its full, multiplatform release on August 10, Microsoft has entered into a letter of intent to acquire Montreal-based Compulsion Games. We've reached out to Microsoft for comment and will provide an update upon response. The goal of the entire 343 Industries team is to make a great Halo game for our fans that also invites new players into our franchise.

Surprising news? Not exactly, but many industry observers have lingering doubts about the future of Microsoft-branded hardware under CEO Satya Nadella.
