During a meeting at E3 2018 this week, Playground's Ben Penrose spoke about how Forza Horizon 4 offers the "biggest paradigm shift" since the Forza Horizon series began back in 2012. But what is more interesting, is that Microsoft describes "Scarlett" as a family of devices; meaning we may see multiple pieces of hardware released that year.
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. That device "will set the benchmark for console gaming".
Four existing studios are now under the Microsoft umbrella - State of Decay's Undead Labs, Forza Horizon'sPlayground Games (who will be working on a new, unrevealed open-world game), We Happy Few'sCompulsion Games, and Ninja Theory, developers of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.
However, the first trailer for this project does confirm that the next Battletoads game will support three-player couch co-op (which suggests that a new toad will not be added to the original game's trio), will feature hand-drawn graphics, and will be released in 2019.

"Seasons will change everything", Xbox executives said on stage at the E3 gaming convention in Los Angeles on Sunday.
The Xbox event was packed with cinematic snippets or play of 52 games.
Spencer said his team is "deep into architecting the next Xbox" in a commitment to console gaming at a time when mobile and personal computer play are soaring. If you've been constantly putting off an XBox One purchase, this could be the game to finally break you. Following their E3 press conference, Microsoft may be taking a page from Sony by stacking their development studios with talent. "We believe these teams have the collective creative power and operational excellence to deliver the next industry game changers". Microsoft is all about planning for the future and it's doing so in a way that Ubisoft and EA are both keen at tapping: streaming games.
"We commit the full breadth of resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play".
It's been a long time since we've received a proper new Battletoads game.
