Xbox unveils a slew of games at this year's E3 press conference

San Francisco: Microsoft has said it is working on a new Cloud gaming service as it showcased its commitment to invest in gaming and announced studio acquisitions, tons of new games and new Xbox consoles.

Microsoft's executive president of gaming Phil Spencer says a gaming service accessible from any device is on the cards.

Xbox previewed a flurry of new titles and deals with studios as the video-gaming division of Microsoft Corp. looks to compete more intensely with Sony Corp.'s PlayStation and a resurgent Nintendo Co. If a new report is to be believed, Halo Infinite will be launched with the single-player mode only.

Microsoft has already acquired Playground Games; past partnership between these two companies has already delivered some of the best games in the industry, with their Forza series being one of the most popular racing games in the world.

Plus, the Seattle platform holder will acquire Undead Labs, the developer behind State of Decay 2, and Compulsion Games from Montreal, which is preparing to release We Happy Few on August 10.

Microsoft kicked off its E3 2018 press conference with a small teaser for the next Halo, called Halo Infinite. The partnership announcement comes alongside the announcement of Forza Horizon 4, a new title in the series.

The trailer showed Frieza destroying what looked to be NY before Goku shows up. Taken together, this represents a doubling of Microsoft's wholly owned game studios. Microsoft announced 50 games at its event, 18 of which were exclusive to the Xbox system. We are thrilled to welcome five new studios into the Microsoft family.

While still in development, EA said their cloud gaming initiative would allow people to play high-end games on mobile phones, on smart TVs and on low-end laptops like Chromebooks.
