Microsoft Studios rebranded Xbox Game Studios, still making PC games

Microsoft Game Studios Rebranded as Xbox Game Studios, Will Deliver ‘Diverse Line-up’ of Exclusives

With Crackdown 3 releasing next week, Microsoft released today the much anticipated launch trailer. That branding would last a whole decade before becoming Microsoft Studios in 2011, a refreshed name which telegraphed a desire to expand beyond gaming and into 'experiences'. 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 Global Publishing group are working to deliver exclusives, original IP and new chapters from their franchises. That banner is now being changed to Xbox Game Studios.

Microsoft has announced an Xbox bundle featuring The Division 2 in the US. It will also be available on PC via Play Anywhere. On the Xbox Game Studios page, Xbox has reiterated what seems to be their new slogan: "When everyone plays, we all win". According to the head of Microsoft Studios Matt Booty, Microsoft Studios is now rebranded as Xbox Game Studios. You can get it on the Xbox One as a backwards compatible title.

'2019 is going to be a great year for Xbox gamers everywhere.
