Xbox Series X|S: Is 1 vs 100 in line for a Next Gen return?

If you were an Xbox 360 gamer, you'll probably remember the classic that is 1 vs 100.

The online gameshow was a huge hit with Xbox gamers, who had the chance to win 10,000 Microsoft Points by seeing off 'The Mob' in the infamous quiz show.

We haven't seen the title since Microsoft announced it wouldn't be renewed for a third season in July 2010, but could it be set for a long overdue return?

1 vs 100 Reimagined?

It's been over 10 year since the game originally hit the Xbox servers, so for those of you won't don't remember the title, here's a reminder!

Microsoft's executive vice-president of gaming Phil Spencer hinted at the company "building our own trivia game, like from our past" whilst speaking in a FastFest live stream on Friday.

Spencer also declared that the team are "trying to do new things that we've never done before" insisting that wants to be "100 percent behind those things."

He's hoping to develop a title that "allows people to play a trivia game more often" stating that "maybe that could happen."

1 vs 100 was a huge hit for Xbox 360 users, having been downloaded by an excess of 2.5 million users during its lifetime.

Spencer had previously spoke of his love for the 1 vs 100 series, but also stressed the difficulties of continuing the series.

In an interview with Stevivor back in 2019, Spencer was quoted as saying "We should do it again" but went on to talk about the logistical issues.

"The problem with 1 vs 100 specifically is it’s an IP that’s owned by a game show company. But I’ll say Matt [Booty, head of Xbox Game Studios] and I have had a lot of discussions about the idea, whether it’s that IP specifically or just the idea of what it was, is something that we’d love to go do."

Could it be a new take on the 1 v 100 classic? Or maybe a whole new trivia show altogether? Only time will tell.
