Iconic Xbox franchises that lay dormant – Pt. 1

Provided that everything we learned at E3 2018 about Microsoft's intentions to invest huge on new ideas and bringing the Xbox brand back to a creative standpoint, there are some very well loved franchises that they have in their stable which have been under-utilized. These games not only tested out new gameplay concepts and provided fun gameplay for many players, they helped give an identity to Xbox which made it stand apart from other systems at the time - something they struggle with today.

When did it become dirty

Probably Assassin's Creed

That’d apply to that series than the game design itself

Kind of a pathetic list Alan wake, Lost Odyssey, Banjo, prefect dark and many more games.

It is only one part of a series of articles. Thank you for the feedback.

Seems to me the article is more about og Xbox and not everything Xbox

Some games mentioned have been brought back via backwards compatible and I don't consider them really dormant. They for sure could use a remake or be brought back with a new title. Brute Force is I think one of my hope for list that would stand the best by a good engine and a new team behind it.

A new Brute Force would look amazing with next gen graphics

Lost Odyssey
Fable 4 (rumored)
Fund a next gen Alan Wake
Perfect Dark (3rd person)
Cuphead 2 (released this gen I know)
Banjo Kazooie remake.
Advent Rising remake. That's my wish list

Been playing Panzer Dragoon Orta on my Xbox X. This game still looks and plays amazing, would love to see Sega bring this franchise back.

Just bring back Kunf-fu Chaos!
