Microsoft acquires 4 studios and creates a new one

Microsoft’s collection of first-party studios just got considerably more impressive. We have known for a while that they were creating a new studio in Santa Monica, California. Well, we now know that this new studio is called The Initiative and is being headed up by former Crystal Dynamics head, Dermot Gallagher. Phil Spencer also announced that they had brought four more studios into the fold with Undead Labs (the State of Decay developer), Playground Games (the Forza Horizon developer), Compulsion Games (the We Happy Few developer), and Ninja Theory (the Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice developer) becoming first-party studios.

Ninja Theory has just released a video explaining their decision to team up with Microsoft, check it out below –

Steve Clist
Joint Editor-in-Chief at our sister site XboxEnthusiast, Steve also has a serious love for Nintendo. His first console was an N64 and it was love at first sight. He may specialise in racing games but will give anything a shot. He's also a serious guitar player and musician. Basically, Steve rocks. Need we say more?
