Xbox: 4 new triple A games in development, the first details

Xbox: 4 new triple A games in development, the first details


After the advent of next-gen last November, many fans hoped to be able to enjoy a series of high-level exclusive titles right away, both for the PS5 and for the Xbox Series X | S family of consoles. Almost six months after the launch of the new platforms, however, the exclusive important releases can still be counted on the fingers of one hand. Although it always takes time for a new generation to come alive, there are fans who are no longer in the skin to live new next-gen experiences.

Now, within the new episode of the podcast of GameOnDaily, Miles Dompier of Windows Central has unveiled a novelty that will surely please all owners of an Xbox console. The Global Publishing division of Microsoft, in fact, is currently working on four new games that have not yet been announced and of which we know little or nothing. To fill this information gap, however, Dompier himself has already thought of it.

As reported by the insider Idle Sloth on Twitter, if you go to the 12:45 minute of the podcast we can get some of the very first details regarding these 4 new triple A in development at Xbox Global Publishing. All four projects have nothing to do with the rumors regarding Hideo Kojima's new game while two clues, a cyclone and a dragon, have been used to refer to two of these projects.

✅ Four upcoming projects separate from the rumored Kojima deal

✅ Cyclone tweet was a hint for the one that is furthest along 🌀

✅ Dragon tweet was also a hint 🐉

✅ Three new IPs and one spinoff of an existing IP

Of these four new games in development, three of them will be new IPs, while the rest is a spin-off of an already known saga. Finally, we also received some more details on the title represented with a cyclone, which will see players try their hand at a multiplayer title in development by a team that has never been combined with online experiences.

Microsoft’s Xbox Cloud Gaming Is Finally Coming To iOS And PC Tomorrow

Xbox Cloud Gaming


Microsoft is about to dramatically expand its cloud footprint with Xbox Cloud Gaming (formerly xCloud) coming to iOS and Windows 10 PCs tomorrow, with select invites being sent out to current Ultimate members. Here’s the official release:

“Starting tomorrow, we’ll begin sending out invites to select Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to start testing the Xbox Cloud Gaming limited beta for Windows 10 PCs and Apple phones and tablets via web browsers. We’re launching where invitees can play over 100 Xbox Game Pass titles through Edge, Google Chrome, or Safari. Offering cloud gaming through the browser and having a simplified, universal landing page presents a great opportunity to make cloud gaming approachable to more players in more places over time.”

If you get an invite, all you need is a bluetooth controller or to use touch controls provided.

This move breaks a longstanding riff between Microsoft and Apple, as Microsoft has been trying to get its Cloud Gaming service on iOS, but Apple said that broke its rules and needed to have every game through the Cloud individually approved, rather than just the app itself. But something happened in order to make this work, it seems, though whether it was Microsoft or Apple bending, that’s unclear. I do wonder if Apple relented given the anti-competitive lawsuits they now find themselves in over the iOS app store, as a potential show of flexibility. And this new deal can now result in pretty weird outcomes, like the iOS-banned Fortnite returning to iOS devices through the cloud instead of the app store.



Microsoft is the most serious competitor in the cloud gaming space right now due to the existing Xbox and Game Pass ecosystem, and now a very wide range of devices it will work on. This is compared to Google Stadia which yes, still exists, but it seems to be getting less support from both Google and developers as time goes on. And there’s Amazon Luna, their streaming service that hasn’t launched yet, but Amazon has struggled on every front in the gaming space short of its Twitch acquisition, so it’s not clear how that will go.

Microsoft is clearly wanting to establish itself as the cloud gaming leader, even if cloud gaming in general has not rocketed to popularity as previously predicted. It does not seem likely that with new consoles breaking sales records and constantly selling out that dedicated gaming boxes are going anywhere, but for Xbox, cloud gaming can serve as a big side-benefit for existing Ultimate members, something that Sony and Nintendo don’t offer, and are not really even close to offering at this point.

Check your email for a potential invite over the next day or two to see if you can try this out for yourself.
