With nearly two dozen first party studios now under its belt, Microsoft’s future output is looking exciting. The likes of Halo Infinite and (hopefully) Starfield are not so far away, rumours have been circling about Forza Horizon 5, and others like Fable, Perfect Dark, Forza Motorsport, Fable, and Avowed are also in the works. But there’s plenty more in the pipeline as well, including entirely new properties.
And speaking recently with GamesRadar, Xbox’s head of gaming services Ben Decker briefly talked those up, saying that in addition to known quantities, Xbox’s first party studios are also working on new IP that are “gonna blow your mind.”
“We have 23 studios across Xbox and Bethesda, working on Halo, Forza, Fallout, and new IP that we haven’t even talked about yet that is gonna blow your mind,” Decker said.
Of all of Microsoft’s current first party studios, we know that Arkane is working on a new fantasy IP, while inXile Entertainment is also working on something new. Leaks have also said that IO Interactive – which, of course, is not an Xbox studio – is working with Microsoft on an Xbox exclusive RPG currently called Project Dragon. The Coalition is also reportedly working on a new IP, one that’s going to be smaller and more experimental in nature.
