MSFT To Invest Up To $1 Billion Into Xbox One Game Market

Microsoft is intending to invest close to $1 Billion into the gaming market with the Xbox One and its gaming ecosystem. With that, it is building a world with the Xbox One that will challenge Sony and its upcoming Playstation 4.

With its upcoming Xbox One, Microsoft is expecting to have close to 15 different exclusive titles that can only be found on the Xbox One, and not on any other gaming system on the market. This has launched Microsoft’s global gaming studios to go live.

Microsoft Xbox One & Gaming Studios Planned

Microsoft Establishes Worldwide Gaming Studios

With the launch of the Xbox One, Microsoft has opened gaming studios in different parts of the world including London, Washington, and in British Columbia, Canada. Microsoft brought in one of the biggest gaming talents in the world with John Needham to oversea this project and it is a massive project for Microsoft with its gaming studios.

In these worldwide studios, Microsoft in recent reports has announced that they are bringing back old hits and working on various other cloud gaming projects for the upcoming console, due to be launched later this year.

Microsoft’s Games Announced During Xbox Reveal

However, with this report, it is important to also remember the various other announcements that Microsoft announced during the Xbox Reveal event earlier this month. At that event, Microsoft announced the Call of Duty exclusivity, Forza Motorsport 5, Quantum Break, UFC, Madden 25, Fifa 14, and the NBA sports franchise best seller NBA Live 14. After the Xbox One event, Crytek, one of the Xbox One game developers also mentioned to journalists that Ryse is also planning to come to Xbox One later this year, which makes it one of the first Kinect powered fighting games on the system.

Microsoft is planning to announce more upcoming games during the E3 event in June, and at that event, other gaming partners and announcements surrounding the Xbox One should be gone into with more detail. Later this year as well, the Build conference for developers should also let developers know additional details for building games and apps for the Xbox One as well.

Microsoft has set the gaming world of fire with the Xbox One announcement, but the lack of gaming and developer details is what developers and gamers are anxiously awaiting. Microsoft seems to be making the Xbox One announcements a staged rollout, and is playing a cat and mouse game with Sony and their Playstation 4 as well.
