Aaron Greenberg, Microsoft’s general manager of game marketing, spent some time writing on Xbox Wire to celebrate a “record year” for Xbox Games Studios. It’s been a remarkable year for Xbox Games Studios, especially since Microsoft recently bought ZeneMax Media for $7.5 billion. As we work together to count down the release of the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on November 10, Greenberg looks back at all the achievements Microsoft and Xbox Game Studio have made over the past year.
During that time, Xbox Game Studios released 15 Xbox games, 10 of which were brand new, and many more coming soon, setting an Xbox record.
Fans played 1.66 billion hours, and Xbox Game Studios developed the most games ever played by players.
