Despite the buzz around the upcoming Xbox One X, some might say that the showing of exclusive Xbox One games was a little lacklustre. Yes, Microsoft did show a whopping 42 titles off at its E3 showcase, but the only AAA exclusives were Sea of Thieves, Forza 7 and Crackdown 3.
But it seems Microsoft isn’t quite done yet. According to Aaron Greenberg, GM of Xbox Games Marketing, there are “big” games coming to Xbox One.
“It’s a fine balance of how much do you show early,” said Greenberg to GameReactor. “I can tell you that there are a lot of other project happening for Xbox, with a lot of big titles that we’re not talking about today. We always balance that.
“How much do we show further into the future? The fact was, we showed 42 games [at the E3 briefing]… with a really great variety of titles.”
The comments from Greenberg came out of a discussion about the cancellation of dragon sim, Scalebound, which was going to be one of the big games for Xbox One this year.
But what could be part of the line-up when it comes to us getting more Xbox One games then?
Of course, Greenberg didn’t detail what those “big titles” would be. No doubt one of them has to be Halo 6, which is currently being worked on but wasn’t ready for an E3 showing. There may be Halo: ODST 2 too, but that is more of a pipe dream than a reality at the moment.
The Gears of War team are also working on another title in the series, although reports are suggesting it won’t be a traditional shooter.
Could there be a Sunset Overdrive 2? Insomniac originally stated when the game was released that “at this time, we just made the one game”. So, maybe not then.
Microsoft’s E3 showings included big third party titles including Assassin’s Creed Origins, Life is Strange: Before the Storm and BioWare’s upcoming title Anthem.
