Hm, seems like this was a decent show for Inside Xbox. My E3 hype meter is starting to go up a bit, less than 2 months until the show.



Around the Network

I’m actually starting to believe that they will announce Playgrounds Fable this year.

I wonder who else will/could actually show something new, Obsidian and InXile are likely it could also be one of the new studios that they announce.



Anyone have any predictions for Anaconda's launch lineup?

Halo Infinite - Launch Title.
Forza Motorsport 8 - Launch Title.
Killer Instinct - Launch Title (If Season Model).
Rare New IP - Launch Period (6 Months)

Beyond that Idk. Regarding this year I think Fable could be announced, Ninja Theory will announce Bleeding Edge for early 2020, I think Rare will announce their new IP E3 2019 or E3 2020 at the latest. Obsidian and InXile might be the furthest along in their specific games developments and Obsidian tends to be quicker at getting games out but I'm thinking they'll more likely announce something new at E3 2020 and use this year to focus on The Outer Worlds.

Xbox Game Publishing is almost completely unknown, apart from Will of the Wisps and Age of Empires IV I can't think of much else they're doing so hopefully they could surprise us, or the budget is focused more towards internal development now. There was rumours of Playful working on a Microsoft IP I believe so maybe that could be a next gen launch title too depending on the scope.



Halo Infinite
Rare new IP
Forza Motorsport 8
XGP game or two
Phantom Dust

They should just give Phantom Dust to Grounding Inc/Yukio Futatsugi who is the original creator and call it a day, don't make it out to be anything bigger than it actually is, It doesn't need to be this huge AAA title, lower budget AA title will do but Microsoft screwed the marketing on that one when they gave it a Blur trailer and Kenn Lobb or Adam Isgreen called it an JRPG with a 30 hour long campaign but we know the budget for the title was more like AA and Microsoft was unwilling to increase it after they were the ones who increased expectations among gamers, such a mess.

I feel like a studio has probably been working on it. Unlike Scalebound that got delisted from their youtube page the Phantom Dust trailer from E3 2014 is still up and Phil said it was still in development a few years ago. They should have a studio working on it by now and an AA- lower end AAA budget should do.

During Inside Xbox they showed a scene of people playing Halo 5 splitscreen and 343I is trying to reach out to MS to see how this came about. I know MS is a pretty large company but I still find the situation funny.
