Microsoft to close Xbox Entertainment Studios. Xbox Originals in doubt.

There’s certainly no questioning that the Xbox way has most definitely changed since Phil Spencer took charge with the focus on games coming to the fore whilst other ideas, including Xbox Originals looks to suffer.

Microsoft have recently announced that they’ll be laying off 18000 employees and have also now revealed that the Xbox Entertainment Studios, those responsible for original Xbox programming, will close.

In a statement issued to GameSpot, Microsoft outlined its plans to “streamline a handful of portfolio and engineering development efforts across Xbox” This includes the shutdown of XES “in the coming month.”

Whilst the Halo projects, Halo: Nightfall and Spielberg’s Halo TV series look to continue there have to be massive doubts over whether any of the other Xbox Original titles that were announced a few months back will ever to come fruition.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore. Gamertag is neil363, feel free to add me to your list.
