Speaking at the GDC, Games For Windows Live man Dave Luehmann has said the firm is pumping more cash into PC games "than we have in quite a while."
They've got "several titles" in development, both with external and internal teams right now says the exec and are actively hunting for more "content partners" at this week's GDC.
Microsoft has closed down a slew of studios and cut back on investment to help trim falls in revenue. The veteran ACES Studio behind Flight Simulator and Age of Empires' Ensemble were high notable casualties.
"We've got several titles in development right now, both internally developed and with external partners," Luehmann told .
"We're here at GDC negotiating another deals, and we're here at GDC looking for other content partners. I'd say our position in Windows over the last six months has gone from a steady state, to a dip from a point of view of the press, but realistically we're putting more money into Windows games than we have in quite a while."
With the rise of the Xbox 360 console, Microsoft no longer has the PC's back as it once did when it comes to videogaming.
