One of them has caused noise in recent months and it is a Mainframe Industries project, which would be an MMO that would operate in the cloud.

Mainframe MMO got a hefty investment that turned things around
According to information from Jeff Grubb, a journalist for VentureBeat (via VGC), Maniframe Industries’ ambitious MMO will not be exclusive to Xbox. According to Grubb, this project was considered exclusive but originally open to different investments. In that sense, a strong investment of $ 23 million, not from Microsoft, would have changed things because it pushed back the exclusivity option with Xbox and now there are elements that indicate that it will be multiplatform.
