Microsoft Studios is the wing of Microsoft that handles the development and publishing of games for the Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows and Windows Phone platforms. It started back in 2002 as Microsoft Game Studios, but the name was changed to Microsoft Studios in 2011.

Microsoft Studios is arguably the fourth Video Game company to be on the level of Nintendo, Sega, and Sony Computer Entertainment. While Microsoft's clout of popular exclusive video game franchises isn't as extensive as those three, they do have a few notable ones, with their current big four being first-person sci-fi shooter franchise Halo,note  third-person shooter franchise Gears of War,note  fantasy action-RPG series Fable,note  and semi-sim racing franchise Forza.note
