Where's my damn private servers?

Hopefully never happening!

I could have sworn I saw them say somewhere they're looking into implementing it one day.

Being a MS exclusive is different to being an exclusive.
MS games will be handled no different to this gen. Dont expect to play them on rival platforms.

MS cutting off 1st party support for the XB1 in 2021 would really hurt a big percentage of Gamepass subscribers.

if MS wants to continue support beyond 2 years then they should just start buying a ton of Indie exclusives that they can add to Gamepass on both consoles, it’s not like there are many indie titles that require 12 teraflops of power to run anyways many of these games could run on the 360 today.

Yeah, that's the thing. They already have teams who could make games that aren't graphically demanding that will run on both consoles just fine. Double Fine games are not known for pushing the limits of graphics, they could easily support both XB1 and XS. Isometric RPG's like inXile makes aren't known for being graphically intensive, they can easily be cross-gen. They could always acquire more small indie tier devs as well to do that. Holding back the AAA's and AA's though is a mistake imo, and I really hope that they don't do that beyond Holiday 2021. 

I just really don't believe that is going to happen.

They need show-pieces. Their first-party studios are resourced to make them. They're already used to splitting features for the Xbox One X. The technology has been shown to scale well. PC developers are already routinely inserting features in to their games that can only be taken advantage of by a select few gamers with advanced cards.

And importantly, this doesn't apply to third parties who might not have the resources to stratify features. If they move on to the next generation, thats their business.

I do think Everwild will release on the first half of 2021.
Xbox launch line up:
Halo Infinit
Gears Tactics: Console Edition
Gears 5: Edition X
Forza Motorsport 8
Smaller games
3rd party games
Whatever released on the current year will be playable day one ofcourse
A game from Xbox studios or Global Publishing every two months starting February.

Oh I didn't know this. Before they used to say private servers won't happen. I can see them doing it for community events and such, but hopefully you can't get any gold/progress playing private servers.

Now I'm looking forward to Everwild. Minecraft-esque co-op game with those visuals sounds lovely! It's just that the trailer didn't look anything like it :P

I was thinking it would be an adventure game similar to Breath of the Wild.

Now that you mention it, the wording is a bit weird and could suggest that's exactly what they're doing.



At the very least we can assume that Everwild is a co-op focused title, it just depends on how reliant it is on co-op, I can't see them making it similar to Sea of Thieves co-op style, would be kinda competing with their own teams, Minecraft co-op to me sounds great because that's basically a game you can play solo just as easily as you can play co-op.

@Bold, that reminds me, I'm pretty sure Morgoth, the Gears leaker over on Era said something to that effect, that they're planning on doing something slightly more than just a resolution boost for Series X, they're planning on supporting the game until Gears 6 so will make it feel fresh on Series X as well, so sorta a 'relaunch'

It would be kinda cool if we got some single-player DLC, while I enjoyed the story I still don't like the big gap in the story between Act II - Act III.
