Microsoft to close Xbox Entertainment Studios

Division originally created to produce high end video content

Posted on

Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox Entertainment Studios will be closing as part of the recently announced restructuring plan.

Xbox Entertainment Studios was initially announced as an important part of Xbox's future entertainment offering and signed up big names like Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott. The goal was to produce original video content to supplement the Xbox brand. The studio has around 200 employees.

The company says it remains committed to new, original programming already in production like the upcoming documentary series 'Signal to Noise' whose first installment takes on the rise and fall of gaming icon Atari and of course, the upcoming game franchise series 'Halo: Nightfall,' and the 'Halo' Television series which will continue as planned with 343 Industries.

Microsoft also confirmed that the TV show being created alongside Quantum Break remains on track to be released alongside the game.
