Microsoft Xbox Game Studios

Microsoft has rebranded its game development company from Microsoft Studios to Xbox Game Studios. The change has been made to join 13 games studios and publishers obtained by Microsoft over the last few years including some of the newest acquisitions for developers such as Obsidian Entertainment, 343 Industries and more.

“Our 13 game development studios focus on delivering great games for everyone, wherever they play—on console, PC, or mobile devices. We’re responsible for developing and publishing some of the biggest game franchises in history: Age of Empires, Forza, Gears of War, Halo, Minecraft, Microsoft Solitaire, Microsoft Flight Simulator, State of Decay, and many more. We believe that play is the thing that unites everyone, because when everyone plays, we all win.”
