WB Games Executive Producer Rob Shepard Joins XGS Publishing

Xbox journey towards dominating the next-gen of consoles.

The legacy of Xbox started 20 years ago, contributing immensely to the console gaming market. It’s no surprise that Xbox had to compete with rivals for most of its existence, and Xbox has continued to make its presence known throughout the decades. Sony and Microsoft have gone toe to toe in “console-wars,” but it’s because of this competition that we got such a rich console gaming experience.

Thanks to Xbox Game Pass, the platform also stood apart from its competitors. This subscription service gifts players with a rotating list of more than 100 games for a monthly fee. First-party Xbox games come to it on release day. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best subscription services out there for video games.

CEO of Mainframe Industries, Thor Gunnarson, summed up the definition of Cloud-Gaming eloquently, “A cloud-native game lets the company develop a single runtime in the cloud that gives the player access to faster and greater amounts of storage, resulting in a more vibrant and detailed world.”

All in all, Xbox is shaping up to be a powerful competitor for the next-gen of consoles. It may even dominate the console market soon. It will have a lot of studios under its name that will be published under the Xbox Studios banner. Let us know what you think of this development in the comment section below.
