Microsoft kicked off their annual E3 press conference with a bang by revealing a cinematic trailer for 343 Industries' Halo Infinite. The exclusives included the company's "Halo Infinite", "Gears 5" and "Forza Horizon 4". The tech aims to minimise the time between you buying a game and it being available to play.

Although none of the Japanese developed games appear to be Xbox exclusive - the developers, it seems, not yet quite that confident - it's a hugely promising sign that Microsoft has been able to win them back.

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.

"Our cloud engineers are building a game streaming network to unlock console gaming on any device", said Spencer. He boasted that the company's E3 lineup is its "most diverse gaming portfolio in every measure".

After all, the Xbox One X is less than a year old at this point, and that will certainly be a major focus at Microsoft HQ for a while to come.

Ninja Theory. The relationship between Ninja Theory and Microsoft started in 2000 when "Kung Fu Chaos" was in development for the original Xbox and culminated in the release of "Hellblade" on Xbox One earlier this year.

A current rumour circulating online is that Halo: Infinite will be two separate releases: single-player and multiplayer.

Surprising news? Not exactly, but many industry observers have lingering doubts about the future of Microsoft-branded hardware under CEO Satya Nadella. Xbox Game Pass will also feature a new FastStart system.
