1. Breaking the news: Microsoft did not negotiate back then, but now it wants to re-enact “Yuan Shen” successfully

According to Reuters, insiders told them that Microsoft is looking for a game similar to Genshin Impact for the Xbox platform. Although most of the revenue of “Yuan Shen” comes from the mobile platform, the PS version of “Yuan Shen” still makes a lot of money for Sony, so Microsoft is looking for some Chinese developers, hoping to introduce them under its command, and also to some independent developers. Game makers set a high price.

In addition, the whistleblower also revealed that Microsoft had a brief conversation with Mihayou during the development stage of “Yuan Shen”, but the negotiations eventually broke down. Reuters said the whistleblower declined to be named because the above information has not been made public by Microsoft and its authenticity cannot be verified.

Daniel Ahmad, senior analyst at Niko Partners, explained: “Chinese game developers represented by Mihayou are standardizing their development tools, creating advanced pipeline production channels, and reinvesting in large-scale development teams. This will allow Chinese games Developers make games very fast, and each one has a wide audience advantage.”

2. “Dragon Among Men” is popular in Europe and America, and the producer said thanks to XGP

Recently, Yokoyama Masahiro, head of Rulong Studio, said that the “Dragon in Man” series is becoming more and more popular in the West, mainly due to subscription services such as Xbox Game Pass.

Yokoyama said, “The Dragon among Men series is resurgent in Western countries. It’s hard to say whether it’s because the player base has grown, or because the new series has changed the theme and the protagonist, or both. But I think, The main reason is that subscription services like XGP lower the bar.”

In the interview, Yokoyama Changyi also mentioned the reasons for Sega’s decision to expand into the Western market: “In 2014, when “Ru Long: Restoration” was released, we saw overseas fans request localization. Sega’s US marketing team also felt that “Rulong: Restoration” ‘ should go to Western markets, so we think the time is ripe.”

“The studio has two options, localize or completely remake. It was at that time that the next-generation consoles of PS5 and Xbox Series started to be announced, so we decided to make a complete remake based on the new console after completing “Dragon Among Men 7” , “Rulong: Restoration! Extreme” is how it came.”

3. Microsoft’s financial report: the game business in the first quarter garnered 3.6 billion US dollars

Microsoft announced the financial report for the first quarter of this fiscal year (June-September 2022), of which the gaming business was quite dazzling, with revenue reaching $3.61 billion.

The report noted that Xbox hardware revenue rose 13%, gaming software revenue rose 4%, and Xbox Game Pass subscribers also rose, but total Xbox services revenue fell 3%. Microsoft’s explanation for this is that due to the decline in first-party and third-party game content, players are investing less time overall.
