And it really kicks you when you realize, that Microsoft didn't touch games/studios like id Software, Compulsion Games, Roundhouse, inXile (2 rumored projects), Zenimax Online (2 rumored projects), that new Coalition IP, Wolfenstein 3, IO Dragon game and other Xbox Game Publishing games, new Double Fine Project, game from Josh Sawyer @ Obsidian, Project Mara, rumored Kojima colaboration, and fact we will also get Deathloop and GhostWire after 1 year PS5 console exclusivity.Hello Everyone,
Xbox's E3 has concluded. As we all know the internet has always created this myth of Xbox having no games. While that may have been true a few years ago, the last 2-3 years of studio purchases and new games/ip announcements have started to really showcase with what's happening over at Team Xbox. This thread is not being made to upset or piss anyone of, it's simply a thread too really sit down and take a look at a bigger picture of where Team Xbox is going and what is happening over the course of the next few years. I personally think the E3 show was quite solid considering what the developers were able to announce and show to the world after a horrible last year. While I didn't get too see all the games I truly wanted to see such as Everwild, Perfect Dark and Fable. I was still quite convinced that I liked where Xbox was going forward.
Game Pass continues to really impress and the amount of new games announced today also was content enough for me. For a show that had to deal with Coronavirus over the last year, I give the developers MASSIVE RESPECTS for their hard work and the will to keep going, props to the devs. Granted, if coronavirus did not happen, you could take everything in this thread and minus it by 1 or 1.5 years, but such is life. Looking over at this list here, makes me extremely happy. This generation of gaming already seems much more exciting than the start of 2013 with the PS4/X1. The lineup below really reminds me of the 360 era in some shape or form. You have a ton of RPGs coming out such as Elder Scrolls 6, Fable Starfield, Awoved and The Outer Worlds 2. Plenty of FPS games with Halo Infinite, Perfect Dark (assuming its FPS) and of course Redfall.
The release date windows are MY personal predictions. Let's take a peek.

Yup. It would be great.
I mean. Hermen Hulst recently said, that PlayStation Studios had 25 games in development. So it doesn't look that bad for Microsoft to rival that.
