New Multiplayer Game In Development

It has been reported that Microsoft is currently working on a brand new multiplayer title that is codenamed Cyclone.

So far not much is known about the game, but we do have a few details.

Windows Central's Miles Dompier recently revealed on the GameOnDaily podcast that Cyclone will be a very ambitious online experience.

He also stated that the game won't be an MMO or third-person looter shooter, but instead will be a more unique experience with an "ambitious connected world."

Miles also claims there are four more games currently in development that we don't know about yet, with three being brand new IPs, with the fourth being a spin-off of an existing series.

There is no word on when these games could be announced or their release dates, so we will have to wait for Microsoft to eventually announce them.

Game Pass Update Add Huge Quality Of Life Changes

In a recent Xbox update, Game Pass saw many improvements to it to help with recommendations, including being able to see what your friends are playing and even jump into their game.

In a blog post, Microsoft revealed the new additions to the service.

"Playing games with your friends just got easier with Xbox Game Pass on your console. Play with Friends now appears when friends are playing any Xbox Game Pass game. You can either jump right into a joinable multiplayer session or begin installing the games your friends are currently playing."
