Microsoft scraps 1 vs. 100

Confirming what has been suspected for some time, Microsoft has announced that interactive Xbox Live quiz show 1 vs. 100 will not be returning for a third series.

The downloadable game was free to play and allowed a handful of lucky gamers to compete in real time against others with the chance to grab genuine prizes in the process.

At one stage in the beta, 114,000 people were playing online at the same time, scooping a Guinness World Record for most contestants in a game show in the process.

When we started on this journey, we knew we were creating an entirely new genre of entertainment that would be a continually evolving concept,” Microsoft Game Studios’ general manager Dave McCarthy stated.

We’re very proud of the 1 vs 100 team and their accomplishments, and are excited to apply what we’ve learned to future programming.”

Microsoft adds that the 1 vs 100 team will be applying the lesson learned from the game to new, as-of-yet unannounced projects.
