We Happy Few Release Date Announced With Story Trailer

We Happy Few Release Date Announced With Story Trailer

So it seems that it's finally time for a new chapter in the Halo saga, and it looks like we are getting one with Halo Infinite, which was revealed at the start of Microsoft's press conference. "Bigger announcements included Playground Games" Forza Horizon 4, which allows players to race around the United Kingdom countryside in a massive shared-world racing tournament, with dynamic seasons affecting conditions; the reveal of Techland's Dying Light 2, evolving the parkour-inspired survival horror with a new, wildly branching consequences system; and Capcom's slick-looking Devil May Cry 5.

Developer 343 Industries has revealed more information regarding the development of Halo Infinite, and the Slipspace Engine.

And yet, in spite of the 50 game trailers shown on-stage at the Microsoft Theater that included a new Halo game and Gears of War 5, there was something desperately missing: any mention of virtual reality. We already know that Crackdown 3 has been delayed into 2019, but we're hopeful that the Xbox briefing - which begins on Sunday at 1:00 PM PT / 4:00 PM ET - will have plenty of surprises in store to excite Xbox fans.

Granted, a lot of the games shown during the E3 event weren't Xbox One exclusives. That game is still to be published by Gearbox, however this will change their future work.

There was also a plethora of the biggest blockbuster third-party games coming in the next year from the teams at Bethesda, Ubisoft, Square Enix, Capcom EA and more.

The four games studios Microsoft scooped up are Playground Games, the maker of "Forza"; Ninja Theory, the studio behind Hellblade; Compulsion Games, developer of the upcoming adventure game "We Happy Few"; and Seattle-based Undead Labs.

"We embarked on a quest to find creative teams that have the mastery of our art", Spencer said.

Away from the game announcement, Microsoft also looped to beef up their existing digital initiatives. According to him, Microsoft is now building the next Xbox consoles, so we have confirmation that the company is already preparing for the next generation.

Phil Spencer said that the company's cloud engineers are working to bring console-quality games streaming to any device.

The future for the Xbox One, and Microsoft's gaming arm as a whole, hasn't been as bright as it is now after a massively successful.
