Phil Spencer has confirmed that a strategy game is actually in development for Xbox One.
I hope its Age of Mythology.
Or age of empires. Either one and I'll be the happiest guy ever.
I love age of empires too. Wouldn't mind that either.
Please let it be AOE
please be halo wars 2
If it isn't Halo Wars 2, Phil should stop talking.
If it's Age of Empires or any other "Age of" title, then he can talk for as long as he wants. I still want Halo Wars 2 more though :P
it's this: http://gematsu.com/2015/04/... no one said it's first party or not. title is very misleading. where is he mentioning xbox?
If Phantom Dust's trailer was a premonition its probably Halo Wars 2. http://i.imgur.com/282Ohqx....
HOLY SHITT howcome i never read any article on this!? You're not kidding, I just re-watched the trailer on youtube and it's clearly there! There's gotta be a reason, why would they put a pic of halo wars in a phantom dust trailer??
I guess you missed this as well. http://cdn.segmentnext.com/... http://www.hdwallpapers.in/...
What the hell?! Never saw these!!
wowww i've been missing out, thanks man!
Halo wars 2 probably
Hopefully not... Wait - hear me out before any conclusions are drawn. Halo is my favorite intellectual property OF ALL TIME. It beats out Lord of The Rings (I'll be it, only by a little), Star Wars, Elder Scrolls, etc... Halo is #1 in my book. Gamertag: TheRedButterfly - check my gamerscore, I've fully gathered every Halo achievement in every game excluding TMCC and Halo Wars (TMCC is just taking forever). Despite holding that opinion, I understand the concept of over saturation. If we look at the Halo property, it needs to calm down a bit - at least in terms of its large AAA and AA releases. What do I mean by this? Well, if we're assuming that Halo Wars 2 would come out in 2016, then that would mean that there will be a major Halo title released every year for 5 years in a row - excluding 2013 (even though that is when Halo: Spartan Assault was released). I love Halo, but I do NOT want a yearly release. I don't want anyone, myself included, to burn out on the property. 2001: Halo: CE 2002: 2003: 2004: Halo 2 2005: 2006: 2007: Halo 3 2008: Halo 3: ODST 2009: Halo Wars 2010: Halo: Reach 2011: Halo: CEA 2012: Halo 4 2013: Halo: SA 2014: Halo: TMCC 2015: Halo: SS 2015: Halo 5: Guardians 2016: Halo Wars 2 (hypothetically) Do you see what I'm saying? Take a look at COD (and yes, I'm committing the egregious sin of comparing Halo to COD, but hear me out). COD releases a new main installment every year like clockwork. But on top of the main releases there are mobile games, PC FTP spinoffs, DLC out the ass, and probably more that I'm missing. And COD has a reputation for it... But the only reason that COD can get away with it is because it is skin-deep. There's no narrative or lore to keep up with and story to dive into. There aren't any character or story arcs to follow. People enjoy the gameplay and that's about it. But with Halo, there are so many characters and stories being told in so many different places... Between the books, comics, main game installments and the mobile/pc spin-offs, it is very easy to just be completely overloaded. And to a casual fan of the FPS or the RTS genres, that's not too much to keep up with. But if you study Halo like I like to think that I do, then you're facing a much more daunting task - and one that I definitely don't have a problem taking a breather from every once in a while. Remember back to when Halo 3 released. It was great! This was the first massive piece of Halo content that anyone got between 2004 and 2007! 3 years of waiting, and it was wonderful when it finally arrived! But when Halo 4 released, yes, it was 5 years after Halo 3 ended, but it was also 4 years after ODST, and 3 years after Halo Wars, and 2 years after Reach... And since Halo 4, only 3 years ago, there have already been 3 additional Halo releases, with another one coming in around 6 months. Now, to be perfectly clear, I'd love Halo Wars 2 to follow Halo 5 -- it would be a good time and give us a breather to fully digest Guardians. Just don't release it in 2016. I'd be fine with 2017, but before that... It just leads to over saturation. There is definitely something to be said about waiting for the next piece of content. And hopefully, with Spencer at the helm, Xbox will have enough first-party content to fill in the gaps that Halo really needs in order to maintain the level of quality that we have come to expect out of it. tl;dr: I love Halo, but can we NOT make this a yearly -- or even bi-yearly -- release? Please?
The thing with CoD is the game come out yearly with little to no new gameplay element to make the game fell fresh and fun (to me at least). All fps Halo games fell fresh to me. So no complaint there. No one's forcing you to buy the game on release day. Just simply wait a little bit more for a nice discount. And if you can't wait and hungry for more Halo, that's on you bro.
The late Ensemble Studios made Halo Wars. That has nothing to do with Bungie or 343 Industries. It's not an annual game if completely different studios make completely different games. That said I have yet to be thoroughly impressed by strategy games on console, but Halo Wars and Civ: Revolution were good steps in that direction.
A strategy game is a broad genre and it can be more than just RTS like Age of Empire or Halo Wars. Just to think of it, Phantom Dust can be that game. But whatever it is, it is only good news as MS seems to expand their portfolio of games.
I like myself some strategy...as long as it isn't turn based. (with some exceptions)
In development? Ok, so released late 2017. Pass!
OK I will be the one to ask the awkward question... Are you terminally ill and not expecting to see 2017?
Check his comment history. Most of them are troll comments on Xbox news. I mean.. You can't be enjoying your life if you spend time talking down the console you don't like rather than talking up the console you do like.. Must suck to be him.
Lots of games are announced years before launch.. If you really had this mentality that two years is too long a wait then you would be passing on a lot of big titles. But going by your comment history, I can see you have an agenda. I don't understand fanboys. You obviously don't like Xbox, why are you here? Do you not think it sad that you spend your time talking smack about a console you don't like? Have you no games to play?
This doesn't confirm Xbox One at all. He already said there may be PC announcements at E3.
PC (Windows 10) is going to have an x box app and x box live its an extension of xbox. If Microsoft is building a first party strategy game its likely going to be for both platforms. The only difference PC version will have more menu options.
For the love of God please make this Halo Wars 2, the original showed just how well an RTS control system could work on a joypad.
I hope it's Age of Empires. It's been too long since we had a proper Age of Empires game. With the re-release of Age of Empires 2 and Age of Mythology last year and that Phil said PC games will be at the E3 conference, I highly expect it's that.
A new Age Of Empires for sure..Cross-play with PC.
After their last take on Age of Empires which was AoE Online a freemium game...no thanks.
There is a reason why AoE online died. You know. If they aim for the main bar of the series they can do well. Off shoots like Castle Siege and AoE online with no premise of the original games in it will fail no matter what.
They need a game strategy, not a strategy game XD (just kidding, of course, don't take this personally)
C'mon Phil, I want a survival game like DayZ or H1Z1 on XB1!!
H1Z1 is comin to XBO. http://gyazo.com/0ea49ee4e7... Dayz likely coming too http://gamerant.com/dayz-xb... Both are in poor shape so not sure you want them right now anyways. Would much rather have AoE or HW2
I diasagree they are in poor shape, but they are in early shape. H1Z1 battle royale looks like a blast, and DayZ looks fun too. Watch em both on Twitch. Both games have tons of potential. Microsoft Studios could always make a survival game themselves. Stop wasting resources on Fable.
Microsoft already has a zombie survival game in State of Decay, and they've already inked a deal with Undead Labs for a continuation of the IP in the form of an MMO and direct sequels. They don't need to over saturate, or bring in too many competing titles in that genre. *Sorry, didn't see the comment below me.
'State of Decay' just came out on XB1 - it's like an offline version of those. Undead Labs (the dev) is also working on a Zombie MMO... they're calling it 'Class 4', I think.
wtf? Deadrising 3 and State of Decay are already out on X1. XB1 has no lack of quality zombie games.
Lol....a one word tweet and suddenly it's confirmed MS 1st party game? The response of "yes" to will we get a strategy game is similar to my response to are there clouds in the sky? It's obvious there are strategy games coming from devs but not necessarily 1st party. Are we getting a new shooter? Are we getting a new rpg? Will we get a platformer? All answerable with "yes". So yes it's coming but I wouldn't bet on it being 1st party.
Great your bring a strategy game to Xbox one , wonderful. Now here a news flash how about MS Start making sure they own all IP'S they fund or publish , cause what's the point of announcing a game if it going to be on some other platform in six months to a year . Enough with the BS nice guy crap start taking ownership of these IP'S you fund or publish ,it worked for Sony look at their library of games.
MS owns Age of Empires, Age of Mythology, and Halo Wars. All solid RTS IPs. In fact some of the best RTS IPs ever made.
If it is a new Age of Empires...holy shit.
Halo wars had a very obvious tease last e3 like crackdown before it so it is probably it
They should make a new Age of Empires, awesome franchise!
Someone posted an article way back on here were he said that we would see the return of a beloved strategy franchise on PC and XB1. The way it was worded made it sound like it was a PC franchise also being brought to XB1. So I'm willing to bet AoE, or AoM. Honestly if it's either of those or Halo Wars 2 I'll be ecstatic.
Phil, if it isn't AoE im gonna burn MS down
