Rumor: MS has marketing on Cyberpunk 2077, Battlefield V, Borderlands 3, Splinter Cell, and more

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Rumor: MS has marketing on Cyberpunk 2077, Battlefield V, Borderlands 3, Splinter Cell, and more

I don't care who has marketing rights over cyberpunk as long as I get to see more of it already.

Borderlands 3 has been in development for a while now, correct?

Since January 2015. We know 2K has a big unannounced game releasing this fiscal year (which ends March 2019), so that game is almost assuredly Borderlands 3.

I hope it's a masterpiece. I myself didn't really like Borderlands (2) when I tried it.



Either these are Xbox Two games or Microsoft are wasting their money. It's too late for marketing deals to help them, people either already have the console they want or have pretty much made up their mind based on what else is on it. Marketing alone means very little.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

There is alot more competition in the loot shooter field since Borderlands 2 released, specifically Destiny 1/2 and The Division have entered that field since then, with Anthem and The Division 2 entering that field soon. Hopefully they really nail it with Borderlands 3. There were some important lessons they need to learn from Destiny, such as giving each player their own drops instead of expecting co-op teams to share loot fairly of their own volition. Hopefully they also make Borderlands 3 enemies feel much less bullet-spongey than enemies in Borderlands 2.

Rumor has it that MS is saving up most exclusives for next gen at this point. Supposedly we're going to see alot of marketing deals in place of exclusives these last 2 years or so of the generation. Of these, the only ones that might not release before Holiday 2019 (the earliest we might see the next Xbox) are Splinter Cell and Cyberpunk I'd say. 



You know what, I tend to get games on PlayStation consoles, but Splinter Cell is one main exception (I have all of the main games on the Xbox consoles), so if there is a new Splinter Cell I'll probably pick that up for the Xbox One As for the rest if I get them, I'll go with PS4.

They'd probably be better off spending that marketing deal money on additional exclusives for next gen at this point though.

I wonder if this is a new marketing push by Microsoft to see how much they would get back from having multiple exclusive marketing deals of big releases at once, or if they already knkw this would work.

 

i honestly don't know if exclusive marketing deals actually work. It seems the sales scale tip one way or the other depending on the game regardless of who has the marketing rights
