Microsoft debuted a sixth installment in its Halo franchise at gaming convention E3 Sunday, revealing the name of the game to be "Halo Infinite".

Halo Infinite is coming to PC, but the details seem to only have got hazier since that announcement.

Playground Games. Microsoft has acquired United Kingdom -based Playground Games, a development partner since 2010 that has helped grow the "Forza" franchise to new heights.

Microsoft is adding five new game studios, one it is creating in Southern California and another four it is buying, Xbox team chief Phil Spencer said.

Halo: Combat Evolved, the first game of the franchise, was released on November 15, 2001 and quickly became a bestseller, generating very positive reviews and establishing Microsoft's new Xbox console as a legitimate competitor to Nintendo and Sony.

Unlike in previous years, when Microsoft took over the Galen Center for its E3 press event, this year's briefing will be held in the Microsoft Theater at LA Live right outside of the Los Angeles Convention Center.

That original content is core to the message Microsoft is using to sell Game Pass. In addition to its work on this year's "Forza Horizon 4", Playground Games will have a team dedicated to bringing their open-world expertise to an entirely new project. There are a still a lot of questions we have about this title, but Microsoft and 343 Studios also have some time to answer them. But Microsoft is clearly trying to push its development potential further with the creation of another studio dubbed The Initiative. Will it have both a strong single and multiplayer component like past entries?

"I know waiting can be hard for folks who are excited for more info about the game".

On the heels of last year's Xbox One X, Microsoft's console hardware division is now designing and building new systems that will push console gaming even further.
