Microsoft acquires four new developers to expand their first party family

At their E3 Press Conference, Microsoft revealed that they have acquired four game developers to expand their first-party development efforts. In total, five new developers are joining Microsoft Games Studios, including Microsoft's newly formed developer, The Initiative.
 
Microsoft has acquired the developers of Forza Horizon, PlayGround Games, State of Decay maker Undead Labs, the creators of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Ninja Theory and the team behind We Happy Few, Compulsion Games. 

This effort will allow Microsoft to release more story-driven first party games, allowing each of these developers to focus on creating great games while allowing Microsoft to better sell their Xbox platform to gamers across both PC and Xbox One.
