Forza Horizon 4 - British seasons star in stunning new racing game

Additionally, Phil Spencer, head of the Xbox branch, confirmed that initial work on the next generation of Xbox consoles had begun.

Microsoft were consistently pull out shocks and nice surprises, including a trio of new Gears games. I would actually say Microsoft's Xbox showcase was one of the best-paced conferences I've seen in a long time.

The most striking aspect of the new gaming environment though is seasonal changes, and they're truly lovely.

Over the last six years, Playground Games has been helping to keep Microsoft's first-party efforts afloat with the Forza Horizon series. The game will be available for Xbox One and PC. Spencer said it was more game previews than the company has ever showed at the event, the industry's biggest trade show. It's unclear whether Infinite is a direct sequel to Halo 5, or if it's a spin off game.

Spencer said the company was increasing its investments in existing game franchises and looking to create new ones. The new game arrives in October and will have players racing across the roads of Great Britain, with an all new dynamic seasons system in place. The game was developed in response to the rather popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise of the late 80s and early 90s.

They weren't lying. No fewer than three new Gears of War titles were revealed.

Amid all of their game announcements, Microsoft let out some interesting tidbits about the future of Xbox during their E3 conference - and hinted at the possibility of multiple consoles being worked on. That's especially true given the company's recent focus on the cloud and the abandonment of the phone hardware market.

"The longevity of games resulting from the "games as a service" model is also why Xbox is committed to backwards compatibility".
