Microsoft's 1 Vs. 100 Project Has Reportedly Had Some Internal Changes

If you haven't been keeping up with the news, the classic Xbox 360 online gameshow 1 Vs. 100 appears to be back in development at Microsoft, although it seems the project might have changed its team lead recently.

According to a discussion between reporters Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat and Jez Corden of Windows Central, the original team lead on the project was former Microsoft HoloLens boss Alex Kipman, who recently was announced to be leaving the company shortly after a report alleged he'd been involved in "executive misconduct".

It's been suggested by Corden that the new team lead on 1 Vs. 100 might be Jeff Teper, who is a Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365 services, reporting to Chief Product Officer Panos Panay.

There's no guarantee all of this information is 100% accurate, so take it with a pinch of salt, but it's certainly intriguing if so. It was hinted by Grubb last year that the AltspaceVR team was seemingly working on the game at Microsoft, appearing to suggest that it might be something very different than what we saw back in the Xbox 360 era. Perhaps it might be developed for a whole range of devices including VR headsets?

At the moment, we really don't know much about it at all, other than the fact that Phil Spencer was very keen to bring 1 Vs. 100 back to Xbox some form when he talked about in 2020. Let's hope that eventually proves the case.
