Cloud streaming will complement consoles not replace them says Microsoft

Cloud streaming will complement consoles not replace them says Microsoft

We Happy Few, a dystopian game where people live a life of lies by taking Joy pills, got a new trailer as well as a release date at Microsoft's E3 conference today.

When further pressed for details about who Microsoft might be talking to with regards to bringing VR to consoles, Ybarra said he couldn't comment at this time, but also declined to say there was zero chance of VR making it to Microsoft's consoles. We know it'll be developed by 343 Industries, and it'll apparently use a new engine called "Slipspace".

It bought Undead Labs, Playground Games, Ninja Theory, and Compulsion Games, while setting its own studio named The Initiative.

At E3, Microsoft confirmed officially previous reports that there will be a successor to the current Xbox One console.

Spencer was not shy in confirming the development of Microsoft's next console, and it's not hard to think that the expansion of first-party developers, renewed partnerships with Japanese developers, and improved background technology aren't meant to pay dividends at all this generation.


While the total amount of new games announced by Xbox was itself impressive though, you could argue that anyone can have a good year.

Given AMD now has a strong hold on the console market it's very likely the new Xbox consoles will be powered by enhanced Radeon graphics beyond Vega. Does this new trailer restore your faith in 343? "We found innovative game designers, master storytellers and exceptional world builders".

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, announces original Xbox Backward Compatibility at the Xbox E3 2017 Briefing on Sunday, June 11, 2017 in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, Microsoft gave a first look at several games coming soon to multiple platforms, including Cyberpunk 2077 (from Witcher III developer CD Projekt Red), Tom Clancy's The Division 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Dying Light 2. Sony recently suggested that it won't reveal the new PlayStation until 2021, and that kind of timeline makes sense for Microsoft as well. And that engine will power the game for both Xbox One and Windows 10, a major step for the typically Xbox-focused franchise.

"We commit the full breadth of resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play".
