MSPoweruser: "Though people complain about Xbox's lack of exclusives, and it has certainly fallen behind, it has received several major titles that deserve sequels."
Quantum Break won't happen soon. Remedy has a game codenamed P7 in the works with 505 Games that will release on PS, Xbox and PC. And it'll be up to MS to revisit the game. insomniac said they want to make a sequel but "ask microsoft" about it first. There is a question as to how much control MS has over the Sunset game despite Insomniac owning the IP. Perhaps they hope MS publishes the sequel? Ryse may definitely get a sequel when X1X comes out. Cryteck isn't denying the idea. Recore might get a sequel as well. It's a small IP that seemed to have garnered a following. I personally want to see a Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey sequel, I'd buy an Xbox One S for those.
To add to your first point, Remedy is also developing the campaign for one of the most lucrative games ever. They are working with Smilegate to develop the sequel to the Korean mega hit Crossfire. To your finals points, Sakaguchi is still avoiding committing to anything outside of Terra Battle. I doubt MS will bankroll either because there's no way either will make a direct profit.
How exactly would MS make a direct profit on any JRPG? At least Blue Dragon and lost Odyssey are IP's introduced on the 360. MS has an effective marketing team, they could probably make those two games important AAA games of the year.
These games are so far from exclusive. Smh Most these games people didn't buy or were just par or lower. They need a new exclusive to give the xbox one an identity. Like halo did og xbox and gears did for the 360...the xbo lack this and as a result lacks an identity. At this point it's a underpowered steambox with less games.
@ Thrash, what kind of game would give Xbox that new identity?
I think you missed my point. MS probably won't bankroll any JRPG's, obviously including LO and BD.
Oh Lord, not another fake Xbox fan in an Xbox article who hates MS and Xbox. If that isn't trolling...
If that's aimed at me I sincerely hope you're joking.
From what I've heard about SO, MS did go to Insomniac first and asked for a sequel, to which they said no. Maybe now that Insomniac is stating that they're willing to do it now, hopefully the powers that be will be down for a sequel...it would definitely be interesting to see if that does as well (or better) than the first one did.
Where/Who did you hear that from? Do you have a source?
id love a new lost odyssey
Quantum break didnt sell enough to warrant a sequel
I'd love sequels for Sunset Overdrive, Ryse and Quantum Break, plus a sequel for Alan Wake wouldn't go a miss, but I highly doubt we'll see any of those anytime soon if at all.
Ryse sequel would look crazy on XB1X/Pc
I Say bring them all to Xbox one X and S , would buy them all day one .
Mechassault would be awesome
Microsoft still has yet to produce a new flagship IP this generation
I agree. And to the disagrees, I would just like to ask what game you think is a new Flagship IP for this generation.
Sea of Thieves looks to be that game. Ori was their biggest so far and is getting a sequel. To be fair how many has Sony managed to create? Horizon is one but I would certainly not classify Bloodborne as a new IP, more of a Souls spinoff, but I am sure many would disagree. You know who has made the most new IP's and has had great success? Ubisoft and lets take a poll at how many here think Ubisoft is the best producer of games this generation.
Sea of Thieves do not look that great. I would be surprised if it sells a million copies.
@Moldy Bloodborne is a new IP, your logic sucks. Thats like saying Anthem is so similar to Mass Effect its more of a spinoff so its not really a new IP. As for Sony creating new IPs? Do you have your head in the sand? Knack Until Dawn Bloodborne Days Gone Detroit Dreams Wild Horizon Zero Dawn Death Stranding The Last Guardian Gravity Rush Tearaway Farpoint Bravo Team Tons of new IP. Thats not even including indies or 2nd or 3rd Party IPs
@Chevalier "Bloodborne is a new IP, your logic sucks. Thats like saying Anthem is so similar to Mass Effect its more of a spinoff so its not really a new IP." Lol, not even close to the same thing. "As for Sony creating new IPs? Do you have your head in the sand? Knack Until Dawn Bloodborne Days Gone Detroit Dreams Wild Horizon Zero Dawn Death Stranding The Last Guardian Gravity Rush Tearaway Farpoint Bravo Team" Tearaway is not a new IP on the PS4, neither is Gravity Rush. The discussion was about new IP's that are flagship this generation. We don't need a list of games including ones not even out yet. Like I said, Horizon is currently the ONLY ONE. @MegamanXXX "Sea of Thieves do not look that great. I would be surprised if it sells a million copies." Color me surprised! Heck, you even think PUBG won't do well on it either. Not once have you said anything positive about the Xbox One and people think I am bad towards Sony.
@Moldybread If Sea of Thieves was a PS4 exclusive I would say the same thing. I just don't like the direction it's going in.
Any of the big 3 have yet to do that.
I'd contest Horizon Zero Dawn is a good contender.
HZD absolutely is new flagship IP.
For the future? Yes, if GG stays on the same path and keeps on delivering great Horizon games I can definetely see most people instantly thinking of Horizon when they about think about the Playstation brand. For now when most people think of the Playstation brand the vast majority of them instantly thinks of God of War, Uncharted or Gran Turismo. It takes years and more than 1 game for a IP to establish itself as a flagship IP.
@Imalwaysright... you said NEW flagship IP. you made no mention of an IP that's established enough for 2-3 games to be the first thought when someone thinks Playstation. You're talking about games that were developed in 97'(GT) and 05'(GoW) and 07'(UC)... You made the comment that none of the big 3 have been able to do it.. when the amount of years the games needed to be iconic were 10+? Your standards don't make sense. flagship means most best or important thing owned by a corporation.. right now, HZD is a contender for that spot for this generation. We still have a few years left... It could be Death Stranding that takes that spot. Time will tell.
WePlayDirty "you said NEW flagship IP" I did? where? Horizon is a new IP. That's a fact. Do I consider it a flagship IP to the Playstation brand today? Hell no! Every IP defines a brand but the ones that define it the most are its flaghip IPs. "in 97'(GT) and 05'(GoW) and 07'(UC)" Yes like I said it takes time for a IP to establish itself as a flagship IP. Did I think That Uncharted was a flagship IP when its 1st game was released on the PS3 in 2007? No because at the time there were IPs that defined the Playstation brand much more than it but today? Definetely yes, very few IPs are more recognizable and have as much impact on the PS brand as Uncharted has. " you made no mention of an IP that's established enough for 2-3 games to be the first thought when someone thinks Playstation" Yes I did.
My deepest apologies. You didn’t say “New flagship IP”.. but FallenAngel did. You responded to his comment about new flagship IP’s as if none of the big 3 had any this generation. That being said, my comment still stands. You don’t know what games come into mind for PS gamers this generation. and besides that, This is about being a NEW Flagship IP, not about what gamers think when a console brand comes into their mind.
You replied to me not FallenAngel1984. You tried to quote me, not him so... you're a funny one aren't you? Oh and do you honestly believe that Horizon comes to people's minds before Uncharted, GT or GoW do when you ask them about the Playstation brand? https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Look at the number of views and GOW games sell less than Uncharted and GT games. Horizon can become a flagship title in the future but isn't a flagship IP to the playstation brand today. No! More games, more time, more quality, more awareness from gamers more everything.
Are you trying to compare Sony and Nintendo exclusives with Xbone fake exclusives? Lol, you are really desperate.
RealMadridFan What exactly am I desperate about? I'm comparing Horizon with today's Playstation flagship titles and I'm comparing the IPs that each of the big 3 created this gen to the flagship titles that these companies already have hence what I said in my original comment but I understand that mindless fanboy drones such as yourself can't comprehend that.
@ Imal Sony has Bloodborne, Horizon, & Until Dawn this gen. Nintendo made Splatoon & ARMS this gen. Microsoft's closest thing is Quantum Break and that is by no means flagship as it hasn't even sold over 1 million like Sony's The Order has. Ryse & Sunset Overdrive have sold passed that milestone, but those IPs belong to Crytek & Insomniac respectively. ReCore on the other hand hasn't achieved the same cult appeal as Gravity Rush.
Could happen with Sea of Thieves
Bruh.... Lets be a bit more realistic....
@WePlay I am, its really fun to play, just cause it doesn't have hyper-realistic graphics doesn't take away from what it offers as a game. Destiny has near the same premise and its one of the most recognized games of this gen
Didn't they just name all the 'major' next gen IP's that haven't had sequels yet? Incredible research
I know. They should have at least gone back into the 360 gen to search for exclusives needing sequels.
right? all the games they listed were not really successful. why not go back to 360 and bring sequels for alan wake or lost odyssey or something
Y'll should have bought Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Ryse & Recore if you wanted a sequel. In fact it's not too late, go buy them now. Make MS take note.
Xbox gamers actually did buy Quantum Break and Ryse. Recore and Sunset Overdrive fell through.
None of those sold more than 200k in their first week on console. Quantum Break sold only about 20k more than Sunset Overdrive did in its first week. Quantum Break is still the best new individual title on the Xbox One. I would not consider that 'actually buying' of any of those as far as the discussion of 'major exclusives' even if just on the Xbox One where they've been outsold by almost every sequel exclusive and many timed exclusives.
People are complaining about their current lack of exclusives. They're not criticizing by saying the X1 never had exclusives. At least mostly that's what's going on outside the rabid fan boy. Anyhow, I'd be willing to see a sequel to QB so long as they make the story more interesting, and maybe streamline the story back into the game play as opposed to taking people out of the game. A refinement on the combat system would be welcome. SSoD I'm on the fence about. Game itself is really good, but the dialogue of the characters is insufferable. Ryse, sure why not. It was decent enough. Good story overall. Again, if they can just improve on the game play, then it's all good. Recore. Wouldn't mind, but doubt it'll ever happen.
I say MS buy all these IP before whatever Publishing deal expires, so they can make the following sequels without issue and without rushing them .
The games listed here were made by third parties... If Microsoft isn't even interested in publishing sequels why would they buy the right to the franchises? And on top of that if these companies agreed to deals where they would retain ownership why do you think they would want to sell them..
As to MS with Xbox one X coming out think the way of doing things & thinking is going to change . Everything passed over will get a second look going forward and best bet while they have a say or deals still active . Cause they are busy doing other things and why not make a quick buck by selling the franchise.
Ryse was good but fine as a standalone. Hells yes to sunset overdrive. That was great fun. QB, meh, it was alright but doesn't need a sequel. Haven't played recore so no opinion.
Why no ralisport challange🤔🤔
Project Gotham Racing Death Row Mech Assault Shadowrun
There have been recent Shadowrun and BattleTech (MechAssualt/Warrior are part of this franchise), however, they are surprisingly PC only.
They need a non-FPS/non-racer that's actually good. Something that sticks out the way Halo and Forza do. Their efforts to do that this gen have been less than successful IMO.
Crack down 3 state of decay 2 and sea of theives are all very diffrent games and not just run of the mill fps or racers in fact some arnt either
There weren't anything major to begin with...
None of these games are exclusive, this is the perfect definition of fake news. :3
Sunset would be nice but do not really care if any of them continue.
Sunset Overdrive 2 should happen.
I can't agree with any of these.
I would publish a new fable set in the time period of the original. A competent independent developer would crush sales. I would publish another condemned because the IP is waiting. https://www.egmnow.com/plat...
Fable legends was supposed to be before fable 1 if im not mistaken imo i wanted to try the game but many fans said its not what they wanted so it got canned
Legends could have been interesting as a small 20 dollar multiplayer spinoff. I'm also confused as to why they didn't try to get anything out of it, they just canned it. There was like 3 years worth of development already done. Maybe because lionhead wouldn't exist to support it. I'd like a real reboot with proper level of care and investment. Microsoft lending a license and a truckload of cash to a studio like insomniac when they are done with Spider-Man.
Blinx the time sweeper please
After they made the updates for Recore I would support a sequel. QB maybe but I might want a different development team to be honest. Yes yes yes to SO sequel. Ryse...absolutely just make more than 4 enemy character models. Ryse was actually great with the exception of that giant glaring issuee.
