Xbox Exec Says There are Many “Big Titles” Left to be Announced
During Microsoft’s impressive E3 showing, the company highlighted quite a few games for the Xbox One (42 as a matter of fact), all ranging from spectacular AAA entries to interesting indie titles. The hat trick of Xbox’s conference was that a good amount of the announcements were for console exclusives, which undoubtedly gave Xbox fans a warm rush of good vibes. It seems the hype train still has a few more stops left, however, because as Xbox executive Aaron Greenberg teases, there are several “big titles” for the system that haven’t been announced yet.
It’s a fine balance of how much do you show early,” Greenberg told GameReactor. “I can tell you that there are a lot of other projects happening for Xbox, with a lot of big titles that we’re not talking about today. We always balance that. How much do we show farther into the future? The fact was, we showed 42 games [at the E3 briefing] … with a really great variety of titles.”
The above response came after Greenberg was asked about Scalebound, a highly-anticipated game that gained a lot of steam during its development, only to be cancelled before the project was completed. He went on to say that even with a good idea and the necessary tools, anything can happen during a game’s development cycle, and this “creative process” ultimately decides a project’s fate.
As for what those unannounced games could be, any of the recently rumored Halo titles would surely be at the top of the list, and a new Gears of War is always a potential, yet improbable contender. With Xbox’s game-centric focus lately, perhaps it wouldn’t be too bold to hold out for an old school Rare-developed platformer. What do you think? Is Xbox is keeping a brand new Halo game under wraps, or is it some other title entirely?
