I made a new GT when Titanfall came out in early 2014. I guess by “active months” they’re talking in terms of achievements. My score is pretty low because I’ve basically stuck to a few online games for huge chunks of time and sprinkled other games in between. First of course was GOTG Titanfall. Then Battleborn. Now it’s Dead by Daylight, probably my most played game ever. So I play a ton but there’s not much chance for achievements.



By the way, check out Children of Morta on GamePass. It’s a rogue lite game and it’s pretty spectacular.

That's 1st party though. You can't really blame Microsoft's 1st party studios for wanting to work on their own IP's instead of taking on the daunting task of rebooting classic franchises that were huge successes. That goes for Rare as well, the name might be the same, but there has been alot of turnover at the studio, very few people from the Nintendo days left there, of course they'd rather work on new IP's like Sea of Thieves and Everwild than take on the daunting task of rebooting the old Nintendo era IP's. Frankly it's a miracle that Coalition was willing to take on the task of continuing Gears instead of working on their own IP, Shangheist, it must have been a scary decision for many people at the studio at the time. 

MS could always turn to independent 3rd party developers and publish the games as 2nd party exclusives though, many of those independent AA/AAA studios are just barely hanging on, living hand to mouth, they'll take whatever work they can get, they're not going to be as picky about what they want to work on as 1st party studios are. A studio like IO Interactive, backed by a proper budget, could potentially do wonders with Perfect Dark, with somebody at MS handling the story. Likewise I'm sure that Playtonic would have jumped at the chance to work on an actual Banjo game instead of Yooka Laylee if MS offered them the chance, though MS would have to get them to modernize the design a bit compared to Yooka Laylee, since Yooka Laylee was criticized for being too retro. As for Conker, well I admit that one might be more tricky to pull off, you really need Chris Seavor to make Conker work, and he hates MS supposedly.

If I was Phil Spencer, I wouldn't be too keen to go out and find a "non picky" studio, desperate for work, and a paycheck to revive a legacy IP. If a talented studio calls me about a pitch for one, and they're passionate about wanting a crack at it, cool, let's see what you got….but I'm not putting out a call for all comers just to bring one of these IPs back by any and all means. 

Thank you 



The whole gotg thing started out as bait/joke but damn.

TitanFall is my gotg for competitive multiplayer by far... I'd actually thought you may have forgotten about it. 🤣



Do any of you know if Neogaf's OsirisBlack is reliable as an Insider/Leaker? apparently he correctly leaked info on the PS4 Pro? only mentioning because he has been saying some stuff when it comes to next gen.

What's he said about Xbox?

He has said that this is the most excited he has been for an Xbox Reveal and that MS are killing it, also said that if they were to go all out at this E3 that they would be hard to beat (after Resetera E3 2019 i'm not falling for the hype anymore though). The thread is too long for me to dig up all that he has said but he also recently is hinting a next gen games but not specifically for either console(exclusives i mean).



Had a check, seems he has been verified on Neogaf and awaiting verification on ResetEra.

Grain of salt though and I don't know him so I can't be sure what he's leaked in the past.

If he's alluding to MS having some sort if exclusivity for the rumored Superman game that would be a great get for MS to counter spiderman.

I would assume that the songs are designed as hints about launch title 3rd party marketing deals, rather than 3rd party exclusives, with the main exception being Killer Instinct. The first one would presumably be a hint that MS has AC Ragnarok marketing. 2nd one would be WB's Superman game. 3rd one would presumably be a zombie game; Dead Rising is dead, so maybe marketing on a revived cross-gen version of Dead Island 2 from Sumo, which has been in development for several years now. 

That being said, if those are what he is hinting at, it seems fake. Sony is rumored to have AC Ragnarok marketing with a reveal at Sony's PS5 reveal event next month. A new KI on launch was recently shot down by an Iron Galaxy dev I thought. I thought the Superman game was confirmed dead after multiple failed prototypes over the course of this gen; not even sure which WB studio would be developing it if it does still exist, Rocksteady is confirmed to be working on a new IP I'm pretty sure, WB Montreal is doing the new Batman Arkham, Avalanche Software is supposedly working on the AAA Harry Potter RPG, Monolith is presumably working on a new LOTR game even though the Middle Earth series is over now, NeatherRealm is a fighting game studio, TT does Lego games, WB Boston and Portkey are mobile studios. Maybe a 3rd party studio like WB is using for LOTR Gollum, which is being developed by Daedalic.
