Dealspwn: "We'll have to wait until Gamescom to learn more about Crackdown, Scalebound and Quantum Break, the latter of which was delayed into 2016. Does that mean that Crackdown and Scalebound have suffered a similar fate?"
Yeah, I think MS have enough to go on for this Xmas. Crackdown could do well in a quiet summer slot maybe next year. Think we'll see Crackdown and Scalebound in action at Gamescom with any luck.
Crackdown and Scalebound were never realistically going to make it in 2015 anyway. Expect a solid date possibly being given at Gamescom
Agreed. I think that's the point, really. We've seen so little of them that I reckon they were probably just announced a bit early and a lot of people jumped the gun. When you think it through, I reckon that few people really believed that both games would make 2015. EDIT: Don't misunderstand me, I hope I'm wrong! :D
Spread the games around the year and give them space. This would work for me, each month some breathing room. Scalebound Feb. Quantum Break Mar. Crackdown May and Gears 4 fall.
from the article, "I mean, this fall from a first-party/third-party standpoint is great. Next fall, I don't... Honestly it's not hype at all, I honestly don't know that we can actually ship all the stuff that thinks it's trying to ship next fall," he added. "It just might be too crowded and we might purposely try to move some things out to spread it. You have to [give them some breathing room], you have to do that." but microsoft only sees the fall line-up as a time to release big games. perhaps spreading titles out should mean exactly that. have games spread out throughout the year. here we are in 2015 and where are all the big games so far prior to september?
These were always 2016 titles, but I am kind of surprised we won't get to see them at e3 Gears 4 halo 5 tomb raider forza This much is known for e3, I was very excited to see crackdown. I feel like ms should treat that ip better and it could be like infamous ip is to Sony This year Sony doesn't have a conference at gamescom, so ms have it to them self Hopefully there will be other surprised. What's not fun about e3 is that we already know so much about a lot of gagames that will be there. I wish moving forward a lot of these ganes are kept a secret till e3 for a bigger surprise factor
Microsoft had to cut games to keep it in the 90 minute time frame. Also remember they are doing a full GamesCom press event on the same level as E3.
Yes I know I said that in my first comment. It doesn't take long to show a 1:30 trailer for both Hopefully there will be sone huge surprises
I disagree with your statement of "They have enough to go on for this xmas." The only thing I can find for this Christmas is Halo 5, and Rise of the Tomb Raider as far as exclusives go... without more titles, that leaves plenty more to desire (in the exclusives department). So unless you're adding multiplatform titles as well, then please, enlighten me. (Genuinely interested in knowing) Keep in mind that is considering everything that has a confirmed 2015 release date. Everything else is either unconfirmed, or confirmed for 2016.
MS E3 will be poor without scalebound and QB, those seem like most original titles.
MS moving Scalebound and Crackdown to Gamescom doesn't mean they are getting delayed cos they were never scheduled for a 2015 release in the first place, according to Phil and Mike Ybara,development of both games have been going on smoothly and also Kamiya mentioned in an interview that MS's direct involvment with the project has helped speed up the development of SB and Mike Ybara even got to play Scalebound during his visit to platinum games in July last year. http://www.dualshockers.com... I think all 3 games(SB,CD&QB) will be released next year.
I hope they show them off at gamescon but is there confirmation that they will be on display there? I am fairly sure they will release in 2016 and I am a little bummed that I don't get to see them at E3. If they are at Gamescon than its all good though. I just want to see some gameplay from both soon
Yeah i was looking forward to seeing them at E3 too,but I'm hoping MS has something really awesome to show off in the absence of CD and SB. They just have to.
I think Phil tweeted that much... though I'm not sure he directly said it what games
These games were always 2016
That's the impression I was always under.
E3 & Gamescom aren't that far apart this year, about 5weeks or so. There is no need to be that upset about not seeing a game at E3. This is a smart move on Microsoft's part, that way both shows seem fresh and not just a "Remix" of E3. Last year everyone got on MS back because E3 and Gamescom weren't that different in terms of content or show.
To be honest, I hope they do delay these games. I really don't like how MS crams all of their games in one season. It is actually pretty overwhelming.
I don't think anyone expected them to be 2015 titles to be honest.
They were never 2015 titles. Excited to see Microsofts gamescom with gameplay for QB, scalebound and crackdown
I hope they didn't push the games away like that in order to focus on their new toy Oculus Rift, I don't want them to replace the annual TV-TV-TV-Kinect-sports borefest on their E3 keynotes with an Oculus-VR-VR-VR-sports propaganda. And if they're eventually going to do that, they had better have something A LOT more interesting up their sleeve than that uninviting Roomception thing they demonstrated earlier. If not, and if that's all you got- you better get your private clapping team well placed and ready this time around.
I haven't seen them announce a definitive ship date yet... Last year both games only saw trailers. I expect that at Gamescom they will see some more story and some gameplay. If they do they will be either next spring or fall titles. But, as with any game it should be "done when it is done". Frankly, I quit buying games day one because they are pretty much all broken messes day one now-a-days. It seems like game ship dates are simply a target to end main development and go to bug squashing mode. Day One games are turning into feature complete betas. And the next 3-6 months are spent fixing them.
I lost all hope
2015 games at E3, 2016 and beyond at gamescom? Would be a great way to do it!
E3 is about games coming out at 2016 and less about games that we already know are coming out this year.
I think 2016 at the earliest, Crackdown is reportedly in very early development so it could even be 2017. But if we get Gears 4, Quantum Break and Scalebound next year I'll be happy.
Gears will probably be in 2017 also. It hasn't been in development very long.
All that hype game Phil was talking smh. Looks like another year of PS4 domination.
Let's think about it, shall we? Would MS really just throw out 3 important titles for X1 from the №1 game convention to the 2nd one? I don't think that MS has nothing to show on E3 because of it.
Yep, just more hype from Phil Spencer. Doesn't matter who is in charge at MS, there just stringing the fans along. You mean to tell you announce Crackdown and Scalebound at E3 2014, but they wont ship til 2016 at the earliest? How bad was E3 2014 for MS then? smh. If they hadn't bought the timed exclusive of Tomb Raider all they would have is Halo 5 this fall, MS is sad. weak sauce
Wow Gamescom is looking huge now, but I was SOOO excited to see SB at E3. Just have to wait a little longer. :(
They said they were holding stuff back for Gamescon.
They are demoing the games 2 months later... The fact that they are at gamescom instead of E3 doesn't rule out a 2016 release... MS had previously treated gamescom like E3-repeat... Now they have exciting footage for that show as well... The real question is whether or not the lack of Scalebound, QB, and Crackdown at e3 means MS will have more time for unannounced games or more of the same...
Scalebound in April 2016, Crackdown in September 2016 would be ideal. The first to lessen competition on a new IP, the second to clear space before Gears hits in November 2016.
So you are now allowed to announce games YEARS before we're going to see them. Great! I'm going to be at E3 with my new console the VapourBox, which is going to Have Shenmue 3 and 4. Half Life 3 4 and 5, and Phantasy Star Online 17. Might take a little while to get it all worked out, and yes the VapourBox is just a cardboard box at this point, but somewhere down the road, we expect it to be much more. The VapourBox retails for $499.00 usd but you can pre-order the ltd edition for $799.99. NOTE: This is satire. In Microsofts case it's called deceptive marketing.
I'm still waiting on the full game add-on to GT5: Prologue(you know, the $40 demo), The Getaway 2, Heist, The Last Guardian, and the PS+ Version of Drive Club. Will those be coming to the VapourBox too? How many years will that take?
Yeh, assumption wrong. I take it those are Sony titles? I'm a pissed off xbox gamer that has heard of exactly two games in 3 years for a console I'm supposed to be interested in. One of those two titles being MIA, with no release date?
They never said there would be an upgrade from GT5: Prologue to the full game. I assume you're talking about Getaway 3 and Agent, because The Getaway 2 and Payday: The Heist actually launched. In any case, those are 3rd party games and Sony has no control over whether they get cancelled or delayed. The PS+ version of Driveclub is coming soon. The vast majority of announced PS4 games are being released.
@wegetsignalX Yeah, I did mean Getaway 3 and Agent, I was tired when I posted. They did promise the Full GT5 download though because I worked for Gamestop and we used that as a selling point after it was posted in Game Informer. The PS+ version of DC was promised for launch during the PS4 reveal. The point was that games get announced and then either delayed or cancelled all the time. It's not just MS, it's everybody. Rainbow Six for last gen got delayed, cancelled and rebooted for current gen. PCars saw numerous delays. Bioshock 2 was delayed and needed something like 9 devs to finish. Too Human saw 3 consoles and i think 6 years before release. The Link vs. Ganondorf tech demo for Gamecube never released. Starcraft: Ghost? Blizzard's new mmo? Duke Nukem? @blib So now MS changes devs with Phantom Dust to get the game on track and it's deceptive marketing? Did they ever say when it, Crackdown, Quantum Break or Scalebound were coming out in the first place? It should be obvious by the dashboard, marketplace, OS, and DX API alone that MS wasn't ready to launch XB1. Nobody saw realtime demos of these titles at the reveal so why the hate? You bought a console before there were games you wanted to play? Impulsive at best.
