Microsoft's E3 2018 conference shows that Xbox is (sort of) back

Microsoft's Xbox E3 conference live stream set for 1 pm PDT; Gears of War, Halo 6 and maybe some fighting games en route?

"The Master Chief returns in Halo Infinite-the next chapter of the legendary franchise", Microsoft says.

It's also about time that 343 Industries unveiled the next Halo game. It's unclear whether Infinite is a direct sequel to Halo 5, or if it's a spin off game.

We all know that free Android games aren't always free these days, but many of them are very close if you have a little patience. This is ideal if you want to know which of these games will support Xbox Play Anywhere, be included in Xbox Game Pass at launch and more.

It's beginning to look a lot like E3 as the gaming world is getting into the spirit and the first big announcements are starting to roll in.

Microsoft purchased Ninja Theory (makers of Hellblade and Heavenly Sword), Forza Horizon developer Playground Games, Compulsion Games (creators of the upcoming We Happy Few) and State of Decay creator Undead Labs.

Matt Booty, corporate vice president of Microsoft Studios, said: "The original games we create at Microsoft Studios are some of our biggest assets".

Microsoft has been pretty cagey about what it will be showing off on Sunday, but that Walmart Canada leak from last month suggested that we'll see Forza Horizon 4, Gears of War 5, and a new Splinter Cell.

Spencer announced that Microsoft is adding five game development studios to its Microsoft Studios family. Go for the Ultimate Edition and you'll get to enjoy the game a little bit earlier, on September 28.

What seemed impossible has finally been done- Microsoft has nailed a press conference.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is also working on a "cloud network" to stream console-quality gameplay to an array of Internet-linked devices including smartphones and tablets, according to Spencer.

Spencer is far from the only one talking about streaming: Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said that streamed games will replace consoles some time after the next console generation, and EA has announced its own cloud streaming service.
