Microsoft says that you will, on average, be able to jump into your new game twice as fast as you did previously on the same net connection.

This included a brand-new studio, The Initiative, and the acquisition of some truly fantastic studios already doing great work. "Developed by 343 Industries and created with our new Slipspace Engine".

Other games like Madden 19 and Forza Horizon 4 are known entities. As well as being Forza Horizon 4's star vehicle, the McLaren Senna will also be making its racing game debut in the upcoming open-world title. And Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, its most recent success, was a PlayStation 4 timed console exclusive, although it eventually came out on Xbox One earlier this year.

Spencer said his team is "deep into architecting the next Xbox" in a commitment to console gaming at a time when mobile and personal computer play are soaring.

"Our answer: we commit and harness the full breadth of our resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play".

The ICC Appeals Chamber decided by majority to acquit Bemba Gombo from the charges of war crimes & crimes against humanity. Judge Christine Van den Wyngaert, Presiding Judge in this appeal, read a summary of the Judgment during a public hearing.

To counter that, Microsoft surprised with a huge number of Japanese games coming to Xbox.

"Our growth strategy is to continue to expand the worlds that players love, while developing all-new exclusive games that deepen their engagement with our platform". As someone whose console is collecting dust due to a lack of foresight or ambition from Microsoft, this barrage of exciting news could just make a true fan of me again.

"We are now at a moment of exceptional creativity in gaming", said Spencer.

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. There are a still a lot of questions we have about this title, but Microsoft and 343 Studios also have some time to answer them. Even a new Battletoads was teased to the crowd's delight, and the conference ended with the reveal of a slate of new Gears of War titles (followed by a cheeky "cyberattack' by CDProjekt Red to reveal the new Cyberpunk 2077 trailer)".

"It's new for us, a little bit scary", Howard said of the multiplayer Fallout set to launch in November.
