Microsoft has been stepping up its gaming investments over the past few years. Spencer said Microsoft is "dedicated to perfecting your experience everywhere you want to play; your Xbox, your PC and your phone".

The goal of the entire 343 Industries team is to make a great Halo game for our fans that also invites new players into our franchise. But it seems the gaming giants are getting ready for its arrival. It has acquired U.K. -based Playground Games and has letters of intent to buy Ninja Theory of Cambridge, U.K.; Undead Labs of Seattle; and Compulsion Games of Montreal.
