The company's gaming chief Phil Spencer gave everyone an update during the E3 event over the weekend, and outlined plans for a better commitment to original titles, along with what players can expect from the future.

He said: "We commit and harness the full breadth of our resources at Microsoft to deliver on the future of play.

"The same team that delivered unprecedented performance with Xbox One X is deep into architecturing the next Xbox consoles, where we will once again deliver on our commitment to set the benchmark for console gaming."

Microsoft has bought Undead Labs (makers of 'State of Decay'), Playground Games ('Forza Horizon'), Ninja Theory ('Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice') and Compulsion Games ('We Happy Few') as it looks to expand its roster of exclusive projects alongside new studio The Initiative.

Phil said: "We know that exclusive games from our Microsoft Studios are what originally turned so many of us into Xbox fans. My team and I take our commitment to you seriously.

"By joining us at Microsoft Studios, these five new teams will have the resources, the platform, and creative independence to take bigger risks, create even bolder worlds for you."
