Microsoft says they should have a new, exclusive IP at E3. Let the speculation begin.
Please be something good. New Gears are a given, I wonder if MS could secure some multiplatforms. Or better yet, return Conker.
I just heard that a Xbox One version of Gears is playable so expect it at E3. Don't know if it's a remaster of Gears 4 though.
Maybe they'll go with both of them. I don't expect GeoW 4 to launch until winter 2016/spring 2017.
Maybe we can narrow this down through the process of elimination. Consider the game-types they already have a stake in: FPS - Halo 3PS - Gears of War Racing - Forza Sandbox - Crackdown Creative - Minecraft RPG - ??? Stealth/Action - ??? Flying - ??? Survival/Horror - ??? Vehicular Combat - ??? Personally, I'd be down with a vehicular combat game a la Twisted Metal.
Survival/horror has state of decay. Agree though, hoping it is either a well executed platformer or an RPG.
Survival/Horror - Alan Wake
No doubt new State of Decay, they just released a remaster so it only makes sense they'll be showcasing what State of Decay is suppose to be, given the last one was a huge successful beta.
Well it could be anything. A new Ip from a brand new studio or from an existing studio. If its anything to go by Phil said hes not interested in another FPS or racer. I could see a third person action games. platformer from Rare. Perhaps that spy game from Black Tusk's. Just throwing this out there but that third person action game could be MS answer to Uncharted. Imo if it is, please let it be its own game. Don't let it be a blatant rip off from Uncharted, don't let it be forced. If it is 3rd person let it be the Perfect Dark reboot. That game would be beautiful in 3rd person. But sadly Phil said Perfect Dark game isn't in development.
Don't they already have Rise of the Tomb Raider as sort of a counter to Uncharted? I know it's not a true exclusive, but it's something. What they don't have is a platformer a la Ratchet & Clank, so my bet is on Rare to pull it off.
I just want lost odyssey 2
I hope they don't secure a multiplatform. That is a cheap tactic. I don't mind if a former exclusive goes multiplatform, but not the other way around. Securing a multiplatform only limits gamers. Rather than do that, come up with an original idea on their own rather than taking what already exists.
I hate 3rd party exclusive games from series that were multi, as it limits who gets to play, exclusive new ips from 3rd party studios are ok though as although it limits who gets to play it, its not a continuation of an existing ip.
I didn't mind what Insomniac did with Sunset Overdrive since it was a new IP, but not with something that used to be available for everyone like Tomb Raider. I get Square Enix were scared to compete against Uncharted. I figured the PS4 version would be out within 6 months of the X1 release. But now due to the Uncharted delay, it feel like Square Enix are kicking themselves in the ass. I doubt that the Tomb Raider exclusivity will last up to a year, people will have moved on and forgotten about it by then.
It is rumored that the studio behind State of Decay is making an MMO which is financed by microsoft. I personally would love to see what that company can create given the proper financial backing
Games I would like it to be- Turok Dinosaur Hunter Dino Crises 4 Ninja Gaiden Castlevania Crimson Skies This one is kind of far stretched- I want 2k sports to make the Mutant League Sports series that EA used to make.
At this point it could be anything and i doubt we will be seeing just one new ip from MS at E3. MS has so many ips laying dormant and with their new focus on 1st party ip they could decide to start up some brand new franchises with some of their new studios or even in partnership with 2nd or 3rd party devs. The options are limitless and i hope they wow us at E3.Can't wait to see what they have planned. Still hoping for a sequel to Kameo though.
Its has to be Rare game or game from another studio? One game only is bad to me but Phil seemed to be hinting at that in his tweet. I think Microsoft need least another two games to get people excited because we know scalebound, crackdown and gears 4 are coming already you need to excite people.
Probably Rare, there were some teases about their project before.
There's definitely going to be more than one new ip but they may decide to spread the announcements across E3, Gamescom andTtGS. We know many MS studios have unannounced games in development(some have multiple titles in the works i.e rare).Lift, Soho, Rare, Decisive games , Lionhead, Mohjang, Pressplay,Twisted pixel, Lxp and even 343i etc have unannounced games in development and then there's rumored parnerships with 2nd and 3rd party devs. I think MS may announce a game in partnership with either capcom, mistwalker or square at e3. They also have the rumored joe montana game with 2k studios and i wouldn't be surprised to see something from epic or insomniacs SO team and who knows what playground is working on next? It might be a brand new game or even pgr or forza rally and lastly Phil did say he would make up for the sf5 ps4 exclusive deal.so there's that too. :)
I'm not sure be I think Phil Harrison merged lift and soho together before he left the company. But either way I'm very excited to hear what MS has up their sleeves.
Phil Harrison is leaving Microsoft but he said working with Rare on their new game is a career highlight. Whatever they are cooking up in Twycross its going to be good.
Maybe Eden Falls? It was trademarked some time ago. Hopefully we'll finally know what the game is.
o yes i forgot about that trademark. The name sounds very interesting and mysterious. I hope it is Eden Falls.
I think MS secret game is going to be something apocalyptic like The last of us(or maybe with aliens invading our planet instead of zombies.
What if they resurrect that shanghai stealth game and give it to another developer, especially since it was rumored to be pretty far into development.
Blue Dragon 2, or maybe Lost Odyssey 2? ONE CAN DREAM!
Pretty sure it'll be more than one...
Probably the game from Rare that they tease every now and then
Super Mario Universe
a friend of mine will be producing the microsoft announcement at e3 and the only thing he was able to tell me (aside from another gears and forza game) is that they are resurrecting an old popular 360 game...i can't imagine what it could be.
Kinect Something or other?
I doubt Microsoft is going to push the Kinect much for games anymore.
That is a pity. They have spent so much on Kinect and it just seems like they have now swept it under the rug (or thrown it under a bus). I would've liked to have seen an Xbox One AAA Kinect title from MS that wasn't a dancing game or wii-sports clone, but it seems that MS was full of BS, especially since they have shown nothing like what was promised from the original Kinect reveal (Milo and the skateboard scanning). So now MS has HoloLens, will history repeat itself?
1 vs 100 coming back. or what if ps4 gets the marketing for bops3. because microsoft decided to throw all its money to secure half life 3 on xbox and pc. lol nahh half life not coming we got a better chance at last guardian before half life
If I were Phil I would say the mystery game would have to be a game for a genre that hasn't been made yet. Ya see, Phil seems to be a man that likes variety of games. They've pretty much got most genre covered from fighting to platformer game to FPS. What's missing.....my first pick would be an apocalyptic game like the last of us. They need more dramatic games. Second game pick would have to be a Japaneses role playing game like TLG. scale bound is one game. MS need more Japanese game because Sony got way more Japanese game than MS. moving forward... I heard street fighter is very popular over there. If true, than Sony has a huge head start over MS because I think Chinese gamers play some Japanese style games. Ok, Now that china have access to the x1/ps4 I think its going to be a race between MS/Sony to get Chinese gamers attention.
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 3 this is the new IP for xbox one
KOTOR would be HUGE as an exclusive. However, if Bioware ever made a new one I think it would be multiplatform.
Kotor 3 has been a time exclusiv EA is a good partner witch microsoft :-)
We know Rare is working on multiple titles with 2 to launch this year.
Source? I dont think Rare would release two games in one year
If its a new IP and its exclusive, then there's no way for anyone to know.
lets breka it down what the genre of the new IP or IPs could be> MS already have these games for their own IPS or bouht exclusivity for so I don't think they will be duplicating or cannibalizing their own games. FPS = Halo Third person tactical shooter = Gears racers = Forzas RPG = Fable fighting = Killer Instinct Third person adventure = Tomb Raider Action = Scalebound/Quatum Break / Crackdown Survival Open World Zombie = State of Decay That lead me to think it will be a game to compete with God of Wars and Bloodborne ala..Brutal action game or Platformer = Banjo or Conker or Battletoad
Microsoft doesn't even know what Microsoft's exclusive new IP is. Probably because it hasn't started production yet. Spencer said they "should" have a new exclusive IP so it could be another Phantom Stardust, show a trailer for a game that isn't made and then can it later. Hopefully they ACTUALLY have a new IP and hopefully it blows minds but I won't hold my breath.
"Microsoft says they SHOULD have". Shoulda, coulda, woulda, pretty much the story for Microsoft this gen. E3 is two months away and Microsoft doesn't even know what they have. Expect more rehashed ip and kinect games with a dash of tv entertainment thrown in.
It will be....Gears of Fable the search for Halo...
Hopefully it's the reveal of Microsofts/2ksports Joe Montana Football 16. Rumors are insane on Twitter that something will be announced at E3. And it will shake up the Football world if Microsoft was able to secure some type of licensing from the NFL. There's been a lot of heat surrounding Joe Montana Football 16. It's supposed to be Microsoft's main release that is cross play with Windows 10. I will actually buy an Xbox 1 if this is all true.
