Microsoft kept the gaming announcements coming at its Xbox E3 press conference where it announced a series of studio acquisitions meant to bolster the original gaming content emerging from the console maker.

Even more gaming news!

"Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice" came out in August 2017 was developer Ninja Theory's attempt at an "indie AAA" game, meaning a project with a modest budget that didn't skimp on visuals or content. 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.

This week, Microsoft is in Los Angeles where the company announced that they acquired five gaming studios and that they are working on next-gen consoles as well as a new game streaming service.

This trailer arrives almost three years after the release of Halo 5: Guardians.

"We believe these teams have the collective creative power and operational excellence to deliver the next industry game changer", Booty said in a statement (pun maybe intended). The footage seen in the trailer is from an engine demo, and the game is still far from completion. The game looks like it plays beautifully and the visuals throughout the new trailer are impressive, to say the least.

As such, Microsoft tells us that they are developing a portfolio of games on every device, including newly announced Microsoft Studios games.

In Halo Infinite, players won't alternate between playing as the Master Chief and others but instead will continue his saga after the events of Halo 5. This could pay off big in the long run when combined with the Xbox Game Pass.
