Two of the biggest games of the Xbox finally have their release date. The brutal action of Gears 5 will be available to play on September 10, while Halo Infinity will not be available until the end of next year. The twist? It happens to the Scarlett project. Not a bad launch title.

One of the most iconic PC games is making a big comeback. Today, Microsoft has unveiled its new version of the classic Microsoft Flight Simulator, which will launch on PC next year.

Another good look at the outside worlds
Obsidian was on hand to show a new trailer for his Spin offsci-fi role-playing style The outer worlds. First announced at the Game Awards, the game seems to combine the RPG game in the first person of Fallout with a somewhat exaggerated science fiction universe, which takes place on what looks like a backwater planet. The game will be launched on October 25 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Ninja Theory realizes a 4v4 action game
DMC Hellblade developer brings his action game pedigree to a new multiplayer experience called Bleeding edge.

You will be able to experience it for yourself very quickly: a technical alpha will begin on June 27th.
Minecraft Dungeons arrives next spring
Last year Microsoft has announced a surprise fallout for Minecraft, with the RPG rampant action dungeon Minecraft Dungeons. We not only received a new trailer today, illustrating the isometric gameplay, but we also learned that it would be launched in the spring of 2020.
Blair Witch is becoming a video game, and it looks horrible. The brief trailer showed an experience that looks a lot like classic silent Hill, only transported in the first person.
Last year, Microsoft teased the return of the classic beat 'em up Battletoads, and today we had our first look at the 2D brawler. It looks beautiful, but unfortunately, it still has nothing that looks like a release date.
One of the most iconic independent studios is no longer independent. Double Fine Tim Schafer, the team behind games like psychonauts, is the latest addition to Microsoft's ever-growing gaming studios. "And with that, we are officially no longer independent, but indie forever," says Greg Rice from Double Fine.
One of the largest MMOs in Japan is heading west. From Sega Phantasy Star Online 2, which was launched in Japan in 2012 on PC, arrives on the Xbox One next year as a free-to-play experience.
