Newly acquired studios to continue creating multi-platform titles, Xbox says

Psychonauts 2 PS4 Play Station 4

Rumors have persisted for awhile now that Microsoft is working on a low-priced console to complement its upcoming Project xCloud streaming service. However, Xbox Chief Phil Spencer took the interesting step of shutting down the speculation in an extensive interview with Gamespot.

At E3 2019, Microsoft gave the world its first peek at the next generation of Xbox, codenamed Project Scarlett. In the lead up to the announcement, speculation percolated that Scarlett was the code name for an entire new family of consoles.

In addition to all this, Microsoft is getting more than just sequels to The Outer Worlds from Obsidian.

There's still a long way to go before Project Scarlett is here, as Microsoft isn't planning to launch it until late 2020. Upgrading to a brand new console is usually a headache - restrictions on backward compatibility and cross-gen gaming mean gamers lose out on their previous gaming investments, and even put off buying a newer console due to all of the mucking around involved.

Nora, who who holds an Irish passport, has learning difficulties. "We have no reason to believe she wandered off and is lost". While announcing the reward, they described the 15-year-old as being "so precious to us", adding their "hearts are breaking".

Over the last five years, Microsoft has embarked on an era of openness.

Backwards compatibility is also slated for the next-gen Xbox, with Spencer noting that not only will the future machine be able to run older games, but will also enable cross-platform play with older consoles, which would certainly break new ground for the game console world.

"I think the area that we really want to focus on next generation is frame rate and playability of the games". "We want to respect the games that you've bought from us". Making sure that all four generations of content-so the original Xbox games that run on your Xbox One today, the OG Xbox; the 360 games that run on your Xbox One; your Xbox One games; and the new generation games-all run on the next platform is important to us.

Project xCloud is similar to Google Stadia, and it will give players the chance to stream games to their devices, with no need for an internet connection. However, in this case these developers were acquired by Microsoft after development on these games began, and so it remains to be seen if these studios will remain multiplatform for further projects. Public trials are set to begin in October, and Microsoft is gearing up to get the service in front of developers.
