That sounds good, but it's easy to say something that sounds good. Lets just hope these SP focused games are worthwhile....

Took the words right out of my mouth. With their first party output this gen, it remains to be seen if these SP games will be any good. Cautiously optimistic.

Which 1st party MS studio would you want them to give that to though? I might've said black tusk back before they got turned into the 'Gears studio'...

Agreed.

But, they did buy two studios with some history of decent SP games.

- Obsidian - Fallout New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, and the upcoming Outer Worlds looks good. Very genre specific, though. Questionable polish and production value, though.

- Ninja Theory -Devil may Cry, Hellblade(which I thought was fantastic).Very hit an miss studio , though.

The potential is there. Plus if the rumours are true tgen Playground Games will have a SP game. If their new team is anything like the Horizon team then it should be a very high quality game.

Or if these single player games fall in the gamepass, I will be all over it.

Not worth full price.
Right now RDR2 was my biggest regret.

I dont mind the single player games. I just think it is not worth the asking price.

Hell Blade was a fair price and like that game.
Well you have said that you didn't think they would do it and you did say people were fools for buying single player games on PS4

It wouldn't make much sense to buy all these studios and not have some single player games. Even if they didn't try to compete with Sony they still would need to diversify their gamepass offerings.

Yeah, I'm very hopeful that the rumors about Playground's 2nd team is true. I'm not a racing game player, but I've heard nothing but good things about the Horizon series, so it seems they have a pedigree for quality. The Initiative is another of Xbox's first party who I'll be paying attention to as many of the high level hires there have a lot of experience in 3rd person, melee centric, SP action games, the genre I think Xbox is most lacking in.

Literally any team with 3d action game experience. I'd rather have an earnest try than the worst case of doing nothing with it, which ubisoft is already doing.

tinfoil hat time: Unless those vr rumors turn out to be true. But the comments of Mr. Guillemot hinting towards that has been a theme for the past 3 years. Nothings come of any of his post-E3 interviews (for example phrases like "splinter cell is important/we're looking at options/more to say soon") so I'm not gonna start believing now. They've teased it and easter egg'd it too many times with nothing tangible to show. It's just a corpse they trot out behind a window to give the illusion of life. I am done and over with ubisoft.

Unleeeeeeeess child of light 2 happens.

I'd rather it end on the mediocre/ slightly above average note of Blacklist than be dumped on to some less than capable dev that pumps out something worse than conviction...

if a game is fun, I don't really care if it is single player or multiplayer. That said, I spend 95% of my time playing multiplayer games, so whatever.
