Players will travel to Europe in Microsoft's newest version of its "Forza" vehicle racing game, to be released for Xbox consoles and PCs on October 2.

"Our cloud engineers are building a game streaming network to unlock console-quality gaming on any device", said the exec.

MICROSOFT HAS SUCKED up a clutch of game studios, created a brand new studio called "The Initiative", and expanded its game streaming service in a bid to stick two fingers up at Sony's PlayStation 4. Now, the argument could be made that this is also due to a lack of stellar, story-driven, single player games, which is where Sony is seeming to excel. Additionally it has announced the acquisition of Playground Games, and letters of intent to acquire Ninja Theory, Undead Labs and Compulsion Games.

Microsoft also revealed several new Gears of War games. "Our growth strategy is to continue to expand the worlds that players love, while developing all-new exclusive games that deepen their engagement with our platform. The same team that delivered unprecedented performance with Xbox One X is deep into architecting the next Xbox consoles, where we will once again deliver on our commitment to set the benchmark for console gaming", Spencer said on stage.

They also delivered in a big way in terms of third-party premieres, which may not seem that important on paper, but it shows a willing from Microsoft to push the Xbox One forward as the platform, especially with the X's added power.

Nadal broke to take that set and was on his way, taking 14 of the last 17 games. "Good tactics and mentality in the first set". Nadal simply had too much power and consistency for Argentina's fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro in the match that followed.

Below is the list of established studios bought by Microsoft to swell their ranks, and the quintet are certainly impressive.

In a blog post published after the event, 343 Industries explained, "The Slipspace Engine demo shown at the E3 2018 briefing is the culmination of years of work and is infused with the passion of hundreds of people here at 343 Industries".

At Microsoft's E3 2018 showcase, Xbox division head Phil Spencer confirmed that new Xbox console (s) are in development.

"We are now at a moment of exceptional creativity in gaming", said Spencer. There's no release date, but fans will wait patiently and probably get a better look at the game at next year's E3.

The future is looking bright for Microsoft. We are thrilled to welcome five new studios into the Microsoft family.
