I just want to hear about the next core Halo game. I mean, I'd love to hear other cool stuff too. But, if they had a 10 minute conference that just showed some Halo in-game footage, and it looked good, MS would win E3 in my book.

That would be interesting

They had one that got cancelled:

What a shame, I would eat up games like this, any game where it requires you to use your brain has my attention and RTS/Xcom styled games interests me alot. Gears works so well with the Xcom treatment.

I can understand why it was cancelled, it wouldn't of sold very well and only to the niche market.

Will see what there plans are for E3.

As I recall, that one was actually cancelled because it was a Kinect game, you ordered the troops around with your voice and hands using Kinect. That definitely would have flopped, so it made sense to cancel it at the time. I can see them reviving it more recently as a proper controller and mouse/keyboard game, and indeed, multiple sources in the last year or so have suggested that an XCOM like Gears spinoff is in development. At the very least we know some Gears spinoff is in development, Splash Damage has had job listings for Gears of War singleplayer, in the past they have only assisted with Gears of War multiplayer.

Tagging this. Will post my bingo card later

I’ve never cared about Microsoft in the slightest and used to genuinely resent them but if they announce great Halo and Fable games along with something for Banjo-Kazooie’s 20th anniversary, I will eat my words and gladly dust off my One after this. I’d love to hear some news about Cuphead, too.

I'm guessing that's the multiplayer only Halo spinoff we've heard rumors about previously.

I doubt 343i will do a multilayer only Halo at this point. I think it could be the next mainline Halo or a spin off with a single player about what happened after Halo 4 til when Master Chief was found in Halo 5.



I'm really pumped now, this MS E3 looks like it could be a roadmap for the next 4 years and beyond. I really hope that the Gears and Halo spinoff still have Single Player campaigns though.
