Microsoft is adding five new game studios, one it is creating in Southern California and another four it is buying, Xbox team chief Phil Spencer said. "I'm very proud of our track record of compatibility and us respecting the purchase of games you've made with us and bringing that to the current generation", Spencer said.
To counter that, Microsoft surprised with a huge number of Japanese games coming to Xbox. In the past, it's used the E3 trade show to reveal new video-game hardware, but that wasn't the case this year.
It only works on FastStart-enabled titles, but because it is an Xbox platform-level feature, developers will not be required to do any extra work for their games to reap the benefits.
Yes. Now. And Xbox One X and PC. "In Halo Infinite, the game will focus on the Master Chief and continue his saga after the events of Halo 5". "This is why we're amplifying our investment in worlds that will deepen your love of Xbox".

Vestberg said, "I am humbled to be appointed CEO of Verizon at such an exciting and dynamic time for our company and industry". He is now serving as the Executive Vice President, President of Global Networks and Chief Technology Officer for Verizon.
This isn't the first time that Spencer has spoken of such development.
The biggest takeaway, however, was obviously Gears of War 5.
We still don't know any specifics about the service, including the all-important price-it doesn't even have a name yet. Game streaming and game hosting could potentially be a big booster for the company's Azure cloud business. It will also be available on the day of release to Xbox Game Pass subscribers.
