Microsoft Studios Rebrands Into Xbox Game Studios

by Rainier on Feb. 6, 2019 @ 12:00 a.m. PST

Microsoft announced that they are changing the name of their game development organization from Microsoft Studios to Xbox Game Studios.

At Xbox, we believe when everyone plays, we all win. It’s why we’re passionate about building a portfolio of games for players across console, PC and mobile. As we’ve expanded our focus beyond the console, the Xbox brand has also evolved from its original roots. Today, Xbox is our gaming brand across all devices, no matter how or where you want to play, or who you want to play with.

Xbox Game Studios is made up of 13 distinct game development teams responsible for beloved franchises like Age of EmpiresForzaGears of War, Halo and Minecraft. 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 our Global Publishing group are working hard to deliver incredible exclusives, original IP and all-new chapters from your favorite franchises.

2019 is going to be a great year for Xbox gamers everywhere. Exclusive games including Crackdown 3Gears 5 and Ori and the Will of the Wisps will be available to Xbox Game Pass members on the same day they launch worldwide. We’re also working to deliver big content updates for games like Sea of ThievesForza Horizon 4 and Minecraft that players are going to love.

We’re also excited to see how the seven new game development studios we added to our team last year maximize their creative potential as part of Xbox Game Studios. As a gaming organization, we have never been in a better position to deliver a diverse line-up of exclusive games for Xbox fans now, and in the future.
