Today, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One version of Chess, its original multiplayer chess game, will launch in 2017.
The game, which was released for Xbox 360 in 2016, was one of the first games to offer online multiplayer support and has since seen several sequels, a spin-off game called Chess Master, and several expansions.
The game has been a staple of the Xbox gaming experience since its launch on November 11, 2014.
Microsoft confirmed that the release date for the game was “in 2017,” saying that the game would launch with a “major overhaul,” which will include “new features and features that will bring Chess to a whole new level of gameplay.”
It is unclear if the company plans to add online features.
Microsoft has been actively teasing the launch of Chess since 2015, and the company has even released a teaser video for the upcoming game.
In the teaser, Microsoft promised that the new game will bring chess back to the forefront of entertainment with the release of “the greatest new chess game ever made.”
Microsoft also promised that players will be able to “live in the chess universe” by “connecting to their friends and colleagues across the world.”
Chess Master is slated to release for Xbox One on October 25, 2017, and will be priced at $29.99.
