Microsoft Studios Becomes Xbox Game Studios
If you watched any of the Inside Xbox show today, you’ll know it was chock full of announcements. One such announcement was that Microsoft Studios has been renamed, and that new name is Xbox Game Studios, which is more reflective of what they do and who they do it for.
Simply put, Xbox Game Studios is made up of 13 distinct game development teams responsible for beloved franchises like Age of Empires, Forza, Gears of War, Halo and Minecraft. The teams at 343 Industries, The Coalition, Compulsion Games, The Initiative, inXile Entertainment, Minecraft, Ninja Theory, Obsidian Entertainment, Playground Games, Rare, Turn 10 Studios, Undead Labs and our Global Publishing group are working hard to deliver incredible exclusives, original IP and all-new chapters from your favorite franchises.
We here at Xbox Addict are excited to see what the pre-existing and new studios produce under this new name.
