It seems that Microsoft is gearing up to tackle the massive success of Sony's (and Nintendo's for that matter) success with single-player games. Having been independent for a long time, the move will give them a lot more financial security when their games have sometimes struggled to gain the audience they deserve. Microsoft also is forming a new studio called The Initiative in Santa Monica, Calif., to be headed by industry veteran Darrell Gallagher.

This is the first big news for the division after Xbox in January promoted Matt Booty, who previously oversaw Minecraft, to lead all of Microsoft Studios.

Last but by no means least, we got confirmation of a new Battletoads gaming coming in 2019 and two dollops of Sea of Thieves DLC on the way later this year. These five join a base that already included 343 Industries (Halo), The Coalition (Gears of War), Turn 10 (Forza Horizon), and Rare (Sea of Thieves), creating something of a war council for Microsoft going forward. So if Microsoft start putting out quality games, people will inevitably play them.
