Here's Everything That Microsoft Announced at E3 2018

The big new addition to Forza Horizon 4 is dynamic seasons, which will allow the game world to transition between spring, summer, fall and winter for all players, introducing new possibilities and hazards in real-time.

Although we can't be entirely sure of what the distant future holds for gaming but it seems that for Microsoft consoles will be a part of it for a while yet. But there was also a hint as to what comes next.

Once the acquisitions are complete, Microsoft will have 11 game development studios. Partially because many of these games are a year or two away from even being released and partially because what you're seeing at E3 isn't necessarily what the final product will even look like. "So much so that we knew we had to build new tech to fully realize our goals for Halo Infinite".

Microsoft has been pretty cagey about what it will be showing off on Sunday, but that Walmart Canada leak from last month suggested that we'll see Forza Horizon 4, Gears of War 5, and a new Splinter Cell. Microsoft didn't let up, showing one game after the next with few missteps along the way.

The briefing began with the iconic Master Chief watching on as teams of soldiers drove Warthog jeeps across a ring planet in a tease for the new Halo game being developed by 343 Industries.

E3 was long centered on the Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony consoles, but a rise of play on personal computers and games becoming spectator sports has broadened the focus of the event.

There's no word on what The Initiative will be working on, but it's headed up by games industry veteran Darrell Gallagher, so should be capable of knocking out something decent.

Microsoft has officially announced Halo Infinite, and released its announcement trailer.

"Our cloud engineers are building a game streaming network to unlock console-quality gaming on any device", said the exec.

Unlike its predecessors, "Fallout 76" will be an open world hosted online and populated by other players instead of computer generated characters, Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard said.
