Halo Infinite announced, powered by Slipspace Engine, coming to Windows 10

There were some big ones, too.

Forza Horizon 4 is scheduled for a release on the Xbox One and Windows 10 PC platforms on 2nd October 2018.

Soon after the new Halo game was revealed fans were left concerned that it meant resources could have been diverted away from Halo 6. Even on the Switch are games like Mario Odyssey and Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild.

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

This might just add up to a new trailer or teaser, but even something like this would keep fans chatting after the end of the big event. It has formed a brand new studio called The Initiative. "Bigger announcements included Playground Games" Forza Horizon 4, which allows players to race around the United Kingdom countryside in a massive shared-world racing tournament, with dynamic seasons affecting conditions; the reveal of Techland's Dying Light 2, evolving the parkour-inspired survival horror with a new, wildly branching consequences system; and Capcom's slick-looking Devil May Cry 5.

But what is more interesting, is that Microsoft describes "Scarlett" as a family of devices; meaning we may see multiple pieces of hardware released that year. Combine all of these creative people and Microsoft could be preparing for something truly special. In the near future are games like Crackdown 3, which launches in February and let's players put on the boots of Terry Crews and rain down pure destruction. What starts as shots of jungles and beaches and caves and deserts are eventually revealed to be places upon one of the franchise's titular halo rings.

This is a sequel to 2015's Ori and the Blind Forest. In a complete departure from its usually explosive trailer montage, the pace was slower and more deliberate this time around - "a deeper dive", as it was touted. The new action RPG from Dark Souls and Bloodborne developers From Software, both of which are known for their multiplayer elements, will not allow players to invade or assist other players through online multiplayer.

Gears of War 4 was a reboot of the series, covering events set 25 years after the original games.

Last week, Ubisoft founder Yves Guillemot said that the ability to play games on essentially anything with a display by streaming the game from a server was going to reshape the entire face of gaming. There is some system loyalty sure, but gamers want to game.

Microsoft sent shockwaves across the industry with its E3 2018 by announcing during its Microsoft conference that it has snapped up five game studios (four established, plus one new studio) that includes some of the cream of the crop of gaming minds.

We got to see a fantastic video showcasing the graphical fidelity of the engine.
