Gamerheadquarters; "The largest Xbox Series X games reveal event is almost here, with it apparently taking place in the latter part of July. With that I thought it would be interesting to compile what to expect from this particular event. "
This article is a good read, if anything like this is shown at the Xbox Event it would be an excellent show. I do expect to see 1 or 2 games with a lengthy gameplay section, Hellblade maybe. Something that really shows off the Series X.
I'm sure they'll spend some time on the next Forza.
can someone please tell me when is it? I think I don't know the date
The date is not yet announced, but it is rumored to be on the 19-20th of July.
@ ColdSin That would be nice, a day or 2 before my 🎂
@ Easily It's gonna be a live event, they just need to show more gameplay so we can get another glance of next gen
I've been posting these exact same games on here for weeks and people have been up in arms disagree left and right. We know 10 out of 15 games their first-parties are working on, so I'm waiting to see what they Initiative and Playground brings. I know a lot of people want to see Fable, Perfect Dark, and some old IP's remade, but I'm praying for new IPs instead. We've played those stories and worlds, let these developers do something new. It's significantly harder to win new fans with old IPs, and team Xbox needs a win because they haven't had one in a long time. Having great gameplay demos of their old IP's (Halo: Infinite, Forza 8, Gears 5 update), with good showings from their upcoming games, solid 3rd party showings (they're multiplatform, but it's still good to see them), and wrapping up with 2 - 3 new AAA IP's from the Initiative, Playground, and maybe a teaser from one of the other studios. And they'll have a good show.
"I know a lot of people want to see Fable, Perfect Dark, and some old IP's remade, but I'm praying for new IPs instead." Late last week undisclosed twitter handles with the names Fable and Perfect dark popped up and of course MS denied its was anything and said these were to keep the handles Ip's. Nobody is buying it, a new Fable has been rumored since late 2017. Fable has been lost in the minds of gamers especially when there's so much better out there now its been nearly 10 years I think Fable can still make an impact. Perfect Dark is in a worse situation than Fable. Nobody remembers it or even knows the name. Perfect dark complete reboot could work if made with the same soul as an Uncharted or TR though ppl are saying MS has Ip's and wants them to use what they have while others want something very new instead. T.I. is said to be working on old and new things so maybe 2 teams? Who knows I'm fine with it either way Fable and especially Perfect Dark won't feel the same if they come back.
@AngelicIceDiamond I just feel those games have to absolutely blow everyone away for them to get any recognition, and as teams that had nothing to do with those franchises, it just seems like they could be putting their efforts into making something new and potentially genre-defining (not saying Fable and Perfect Dark can't). However, I do feel Fable is highly likely though.
It was a good read but the predicyptions were a bit safe.
They were safe because almost everything is expected or confirmed as games the developers are working on. Xbox has 15 developers, and 11 of their 15 games have been confirmed/expected. That leaves 4 left, and the potential for New IP's from some teams to be teased with a 2022 release if they want to show that much up front.
I'd love to see some Hellblade gameplay. I want to see how Ninja Theory have leveraged the Series X, and I really want to see how it plays. Hopefully it's moved beyond the just the runic alignment puzzles and relatively simplistic combat. I really enjoyed playing through the first one, and after seeing that trailer, I'm anticipating something spectacular.
All will be xbox one games. why bother? LOL
Halo Infinte Perfect Dark Fable IV Everwild Grounded Forza 8 That would be sick.
Fable was a brilliant game they have to do a reboot
Perfect Dark in 3rd person please. I'd add to the "Dream" category a $400 price tag. That'd be absolutely killer.
Imagine perfect dark with splinter cell gameplay, would be sick!
Throw Hell Blade 2 in there and Obsidians new AAA open world RPG. I said this in another post but a new Splinter Cell gets announced and its only for X Series.
One thing I expect is disappointment.
Why? Are they showcasing you as well?
Way to ruin the surprise.
lets hope it much better than thete previous showing, promised gameplay but didnt deliver, cant blame him for expecting disapointment, i watch that last crap too
Well extended gameplay of halo wouldn't mind some new AA store only games. I don't think console features will be shown just yet there's plenty of time for that
People said temper expectation before the Playstation reveal so I'd suggest doing the same thing here.
just show me fable...
MechAssault would be cool. I feel like it should have been out this generation. Ninja Gaiden would be awesome as well but that would be a multiplatform game.
Not sure if I’m alone on this, but what would you guys think of a new kameo game? Like a reboot or a sequel. I think that’d be awesome.
Viva Pinata, Kameo, Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark... Bring back catalogue Rare IPs please!
I'd be cool with it, but they already have a lot of more cartoonish, or at least less realistic games they've shown, so from a marketing stand point, it may not be good to keep piling those on when their biggest criticism is their lack of AAA games.
@rainslacker "I'd be cool with it, but they already have a lot of more cartoonish, or at least less realistic games they've shown" RARE is not known or beloved for photorealistic games and you are old enough to know that, so, quit the concern trolling.
I have no problem with less realistic games. None whatsoever. But, it's the AAA that people get excited about more often than not. If it's not AAA, then it has to be from a studio with pedigree, usually in an established IP, like R&C. All I'm saying is that they need variety, and they need games that get the masses attention. Most of the games they've shown to date aren't those kinds of games, regardless of how good they may or may not be.
@rainslacker "All I'm saying is that they need variety, and they need games that get the masses attention. Most of the games they've shown to date aren't those kinds of games, regardless of how good they may or may not be." Flight Simulator Scorn The Medium Age of Empires IV Gears Tactics Crossfire X Hellblade II Grounded Project Mara Everwild Bright Memory Infinite Call of the Sea Second Extinction The Ascent This a far more diverse and varied line up of future games in comparison to Sony´s. No to mention more realistic, less indies, more AA and AAA games as well. All that without mention even more AAA games to be announced in July.
And of all those, most aren't the AAA games that sell systems. I like the mid-tier or AA games, however you want to call them. And they're good at rounding out the portfolio and give different experiences to play. But, no one here went on at length about how those games were the reason to buy a system until MS decided to dismantle their AAA studios, and go without for the generation. I shouldn't be talking to a wall here about this, because everyone here knows what people mean when they talk about a system having no games, or not the kinds of games that get people excited. It's not that complicated.
I remember Kameo as the best launch game for the 360! Really cool game.
Just wanna see new ips
Hopefully for next generation
I’m just expecting a date at this point. Bloody hell.
Forza Halo Gears
shhhhh. dont say that... can't have any of that real talk here
I hope so! I want to see Forza 8 on next gen. Super hyped for Halo Infinite, and a release date for Gears Tactics on consoles. Lets not forget Fable, Hellblade 2, Everwild, Grounded, Perfect dark, Psychonauts 2, and anything else in the works. A mix of old and new is the best!
Jairus here is from the future!
They stopped making AAA games? Obsidian, Rare, Playground, The Initiative, Ninja Theory are AAA studios and are factually making AAA games that will be announced in July. That's reality instead of your own false reasoning.
Halo yes since its a launch title. Gears? No Gears 5 released last fall. Forza? A teaser is very likely. But lets ignore other teams that'll be there showing off new AAA.
Xbox stopped making AAA games because of gamepass. The most you can get is single A game.
Mario , Pokemon And Zelda
Expect: Halo Infinite Gears Tactic Serie X edition Forza 8 Flight Simulator A new Sea of Thieves expansion with ray tracing From 3rd Party Cyberpunk Assassin's Creed Vahalla A new EA game (Battlefield?) Wishlist Conker (Why oh why there's still no conker game) Kungfu Chaos 2 Virtua fighter 6

I expect Xbox to show a good chunk of games they are working on, but don't expect to hear about everything at once. There is still X020 this year. Matt said they have a lot of games in the pipeline and want to spread out announcements at different events.
I expect game announcements that will never be released like scalebound, milo etc.
You mean like Deep Down and Agent?
I hope we see some brand new games, and some old favorites like Conker, Perfect Dark, the original Fuzion Frenzy, etc.
A new Conker and Fuzion Frenzy would be great!
A new Conker game will forever just be a dream. Even if they show Conker I would temper my expectations because otherwise we end up like this again. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I think Fuzion Frenzy would awesome in next gen. So much you could do with that!
This is a good article. I think everything mentioned is reasonable and I am really looking forward to it. For me Fable is most wanted. I Loved Fable 2 in particular and would love to see what Playground (if it is them) could do with this franchise.
Night of mic drops they say. I hope it's an awesome event with a lot of exciting stuff, it will be great for gaming
I’m hoping for much more than Halo, Forza, and Gears, that’s for damn sure! I hope the Fable rumors are true, I’m also hoping for a new IP or something other than Perfect Dark from new dev team The Initiative, and further new IPs from several of the other newly acquired teams. No more time for holding back cards for MS with Xbox this gen.
I could see a real shift in interest in Xbox again if we were to see MS take some BIG fun risks and were to see them make real new next-gen versions of older games like Fusion Frenzy, Kung Fu Chaos, Bloodwake, Rallysport Challenge, Crimson Skies, a Brute Force reboot, Jade Empire sequel, Blinx reboot, Conker reboot, a Kameo sequel, a Tenchu or Ninja Gaiden, Banjo Kazooie remake/reboot, a New Killer Instict or Virtua Fighter. MS owns some cool IP, it’s always a matter of how that material gets treated and funded. I’d love to see MS with a full stable of quality games again!
none that won't be better on PC.
