Xbox Entertainment Studios gets the ax

Written by David Stellmack

In progress programming efforts will continue

We have learned that as part of the 18,000 to be kicked to the curb by Microsoft, the Xbox Entertainment Studios will be getting the ax as part of this layoff. Xbox Entertainment Studios is the division of the company responsible for creating new Xbox-exclusive programming.

Apparently, although the studio itself will be closed, already in production projects will continue. This means that the Halo TV series will continue. The decision to close the Entertainment Studio should not be seen as a sign of anything other than a business decision to continue in another direction.

It has already been confirmed that the Xbox Team and associated Xbox teams should see little change and this apparently is part of the little change. We think that right now, Microsoft does not believe that the importance of exclusive programming for the Xbox is necessary to fund. Of course this could change in the future, but we would not count on it.
