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

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

We have a while to wait before we can finally get our hands on Xbox Project Scarlett, and Microsoft is remaining pretty tight-lipped on details about its next-generation hardware.

The rumour mill was pretty active past year as "Scarlett" was initially said to be the codename for a family of next-gen Xbox consoles.

Booty said he's open to Obsidian and other acquired studios making multiplatform games if they're a good fit, but that he thinks Outer Worlds is the "kind of game" that would benefit from being Xbox exclusive. Now, head of Xbox Phil Spencer has announced much more about what's in retailer for the console, which Microsoft says might be four instances as highly effective because of the Xbox One X. "Ensuring that the games load incredibly fast, ensuring that the game is running at the highest frame rate possible". Upgrading to a brand new console could be a headache - restrictions on backward compatibility and cross-gen gaming mean gamers lose out on their earlier gaming investments, and even delay shopping for a more recent console due to all of the mucking round concerned.

"But then obviously we're going to have our big franchises like Forza, Halo and Sea of Thieves, where those games are designed from the outset to really exist on Xbox, I think that will continue".

Not only that, the team wants to make it possible for players playing on any generation of Xbox to play together without worrying about cross-platform playability issues. Spencer gave some insight as to why it is such an important feature for Microsoft. How fast do games load?

Microsoft unveiled its latest console at the big E3 gaming conference in June, Project Scarlett. These games were already undergoing development when Xbox bought out the developers, which could explain the multiple platform releases. Does this game both look and feel like no other game that I've seen? This generation, we came out with the Elite controller, we've done work on controllers and people have invested in personalized controllers, the things that they love and we want to make those compatible with future generations of our console as well.
