With 22 studios under its roof, Microsoft has a lot in the works for its Xbox Series consoles. To help keep track of it all, this video goes over every franchise Xbox Games Studios has cooking in the kitchen.
Host Kurt Indovina goes down the list of all 22 Xbox Game Studios companies, detailing what they’ve worked on and what they have coming up. 343 Industries, the Halo-focused studio, is of course working on Halo Infinite, but the Forza Horizon-centric studio, Playground Games, is developing an all-new Fable. Then there are other studios that have their fingers in many different pies, such as Obsidian. The Outer Worlds developer is working on several games at once, including Grounded and Avowed (hopefully a new Fallout: New Vegas, too). Or Ninja Theory, the developer of Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and Bleeding Edge, is working on Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II and Project: Mara.
There’s plenty of newly formed studios like The Initiative, Microsoft’s "AAAA" studio, that hasn’t announced what it’s working on yet. The new developer is made up of industry veterans from big studios such as Naughty Dog, Bungie, and Crystal Dynamics. Though there’s no confirmation on what it’s working on, there are rumors of it reviving the Perfect Dark franchise.
But what about MachineGames? Is it working on another Wolfenstein? Same with Roundhouse Studios–is it developing the next Prey? While there are some unanswered questions, this video will equip with you the knowledge of what studios are under the Xbox umbrella and an idea of what’s on the way.
