MS to do the "Halo, Gears, Forza" formula again?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - MS to do the "Halo, Gears, Forza" formula again?

The 3 being revealed isn't a surprise...
And SO2 isn't likely since MS had only SO1 as exclusive and as pointed Insomniac is doing Spiderman.

If MS is happy with their playerbase, then why not. Sure i couldnt care less for those 3 games.

If those continue to be the best games MS can offer, I’ll continue to regret my XBO purchase. I’m a couple hours into Sunset Overdrive right now, and I’m definitely not loving it. If the game doesn’t improve, Cuphead will remain the only good exclusive on the XBO (imo). I thought I would like Ori and Gears 4, but unfortunately that was not the case.

Sorry yo hear that! I started following a strategy of waiting for 3 "must have" games on a console that has improved my decision making, maybe that ould help you out in future.

@ot: isn't an annual Forza a given?  Halo and Fears eouldn't shock me either, so yeah, they need something elsr.



About quality discussion.
Quality is measured on objective terms of the product meeting the design criteria and repeat on production. Quality isn't subjective. What may be said is that the scope or design of those games are bad or don't meet market need, but that isn't the concern on quality. It's like effectiveness and efficiency, efficiency is about doing the thing right while effectiveness about doing the right thing.
All 3 staples of MS deliver on what they intend, without breaking bugs, with high level production, etc. One may not like any of the games, but from a quality stand point they deliver.

At this point it's pretty much the full name of the company: MicrosoftHaloGearsForza...

But if Xbox owners are happy with this endless cycle, good for them.

I'm sleepy, time for a nappy!

Well, it was on sale for like $230 with Minecraft (which I planned to sell) two Black Fridays ago, and I wanted a 4K Blu-ray player. I also was excited for Cuphead, Ori, Gears 4, and mildly excited for SSO. Cuphead was freakin awesome, but Ori bored me enough after 5 hrs that I stopped playing, and Gears took even less time than that. Playing SSO currently, and after 4h or so, I’m starting to enjoy it some, so that’s something. 



With Spider-Man almost done, it is probably time for insomniac to announce what is next in the pipeline. So sunset overdrive 2 isn’t really a stretch. The problem is that the first sunset overdrive wasn’t very successful. I don’t think insomniac is going to go down that road again...

I have very high expectations for Halo 6.  I think they know that they have to knock it out of the park next time.  XB lost a lot of market share this generation.  If it weren't for Halo loyalists, they'd have lost even more. If they go without a mega-hit Halo for a whole generation, it will be even harder to keep people in the XB universe for the next gen.  

Forza games have been great forever.  I expect that to continue.  

Gears..... eh, I dunno.  I don't feel like the series is all that important anymore.  I certainly don't care about it, personally.  

I mean Gears is the sole reason I bought a Xbox one. I enjoy Halo alot and I´ve never played a Forza game it was Fable, Gears and Dead rising that made me get one. 

It is certainly possible that Gears is more significant that I think.  I've never been into the series, so it could just be that it isn't important to me.  

As for Forza, I've played the ones that were "free" with XBL, and I bought a couple in a dirt cheap bundle.  I've never completed one, but I enjoy a few days of Forza a couple times per year.  

Anyway, I really hope Halo 6 kicks ass. 



You gotta be stupid if you're surprised about a new Forza. That's like being surprised about their being a new COD title every year. If they stop this formula, Xbox fans will be pissed off, when they keep this formula, Sony fans complain about a console they don't own. Just stay on your side of the fucking border for once.
These 3 franchises are core to the experience, and without them I would ditch my Xbox. They experiment with plenty of new IP's, and they're getting back into revisiting old IP's with Crackdown and Fable 4 (Not announced, but known about) making returns after a long ass time.



Well, I suppose you should cater to the fanbase you already have before going after new fans.

Are you paying attention, Kathleen Kennedy?
