Microsoft Confirms Xbox 'Scarlet' And New Game Streaming Service

New Halo game announced at E3 2018

Battletoads coming to Xbox in 2019

But towards the end of their presentation, Executive President of Gaming Phil Spencer talked about the future of Xbox, and what that might look like.

Microsoft just announced that it's acquiring Ninja Theory, the developer of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. However, the $10 per month Xbox Game Pass could be the trojan horse Microsoft needs to undermine Sony. So is Forza Horizon 4's Playground Games and We Happy Few's Compulsion Games.

He went on to declare that Xbox will be always be the best place to experience gaming and hinted at a cloud gaming service and new Xbox consoles for the future. Is it too little too late?

Something else noted by the Battletoads E3 2018 trailer is that the game will have 4K hand drawn 2.5D graphics.
