Franchises Microsoft Should Revive

Compared to Sony and Nintendo Microsoft doesn't have a lot of exclusive content on their Xbox One. This year Sony released exclusive games such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Nier: Automata, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, and much more. Nintendo has also had a strong year with the Nintendo Switch easily surpassing the Wii U in sales and delivering incredible games like Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey. Microsoft needs some exclusives and with 2018 almost here maybe it's time to revive some dormant ones.

“This year Sony released exclusive games such as Horizon Zero Dawn, Nier: Automata, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice.”

Only one of those games is a first party title. When comparing first party support for every manufacturer, it’s only essential to only bring up first party titles like Gravity Rush 2, Wipeout: Omega Collection, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, & Gran Turismo Sport.

Well the author listed Nier: Automata & Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice as PS4 exclusives despite them also being on PC, so this kind of thing isn’t exclusive to Xbox fans.

But that’s besides the point. When talking about first party support, it’s only logical to only bring up first party games.

third_party exclusives are still third_party games in my eyes.

but. . "good relationships" .. no. It's just business.

@ Ghost

This whole entire article is about first party titles. The description itself lists the publishers and not the consoles themselves which further shows its about first party tiles. Heck even the headline is about Microsoft’s first party titles.

You seem too hung up on the word “exclusives” and not the entire context the author is talking about.

@ Woolly

Regardless of how you wanna classify those third party titles, this article is about first party content.

I agree. If this is about first party titles why would third party be relevant? Especially when those third party titles are available on PC.

I agree Crimson Skies should get another game. I'd add Blood Wake, Perfect Dark, Freelancer, Fable and Alan Wake.

I also would add Shadowrun, but go back to it being a RPG. The old one was an open world top down RPG and the best way for MS to revive it is look at what Bethesda did with Fallout and turn Shadowrun into an open world FPS, RPG. Get a company like Obsidian to help make the game and then it'll be a success.

I also would like to see MS revive old game ideas like B. C. that game had an interesting idea for a game and seeing more games like that is what MS needs to be trying.

A new Project Gotham Racing would also be a blast.

Plus working with Mistwalker NEEDS to happen again. More game like Lost Odyssey are what the Xbox brand needs more of.

porkChop29d ago

Shadowrun has already been revived as an RPG though.

Perfect Dark and Project Gotham both need to happen.

hamburgerhill29d ago (Edited 29d ago )

BC and Yager which I don't remember ever releasing either. Another few games I like would be Rallisport, Brute force, Midtown madness, Kameo, Banjo, Jade Empire and maybe Azura.

WolvesDude29d ago

Good shout Freelancer, Project Gotham too.

Now that that's out of my system: they are reviving franchises. Offering remastered versions of IPs barely given a chance. Otherwise they seem to be operating on a games as services mentality.

That would be Majesco, not microsoft, but they went belly up, so no idea who owns that IP. It would be nice to get an updated, less buggy version of the game.

It was console exclusive on XBOX at the time so Im sure Microsoft has the run down on it
