Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Predictions/Wishlist for Xbox Game Studios July Showcase

Unlike Sony with the PS5, Microsoft already got most of its showing for the Xbox Series X out of the way. They formally revealed the console at The Game Awards last year, had a few videos showing the improved loading speeds, and had a special edition of Inside Xbox Showcasing third party titles coming to Xbox. Now all that's left is to see what Xbox themselves has in store for next gen, games' wise. So here's a little Wishlist/Predictions for what the July First party showcase has to offer.

* Halo Infinite Gameplay Reveal - Gameplay running on Series X, goes back to the original gameplay style of the Bungie games, 60FPS, available at launch.

* Everwild gets a new trailer - Open World RPG similar to Monster Hunter, lots of exotic lands to explore, creatures to hunt. Play alone or with friends, 2020

* Tell Me Why gets a new trailer - Enhanced for Xbox Series X, available at launch

Playground Games New RPG - It's not Fable. Rather a New IP, more details in the future

2 New games from Japanese developers - First, a platformer developed by Arika (Tetris 99, Fighting EX Layer, Endless Ocean), the other an action RPG from Ganbarion (Pandora's Tower, Shonen Jump games)

* Blinx 1&2 remastered - First two games remastered with up to 4K support, 60fps, rebalanced difficulty.

* Ninja Theory segment - Shows new content for Bleeding Edge, BE also coming to Series X, Project Mara gets first official gameplay, and a final name, promises more details on Hellblade II in the future

* World's Edge segment - Shows off the new Age of Empires games coming in 2020

* Forza 8 announced - Coming to Xbox One, Series X, and PC this Fall

* Double Fine segment - New Trailer for Psychonauts 2, and a brand new IP announced for Xbox and PC

* Grounded -New gameplay trailer, details on mechanics, coming soon

* The Initiative game fully revealed - First person shooter with a unique style and gameplay hook. No gameplay.

If Microsoft can manage a show something similar to this, I think they'd do a pretty good job.

Well, I have a few, but I doubt they'd ever come to fruition:

-A proper return of Banjo-Kazooie in the style of the first two games on N64.

-Games in genres that Xbox Game Studios doesn't normally focus on.

-Fix the art style of the new BattleToads so that it doesn't look like a bad Flash game.

-Bring back more old Rare IPs instead of just sitting on them.



Halo and more Halo

It'd be a huge blunder if they didn't have Halo.



Announce they've acquired Mistwalker and reveal a Tokyo RPG Factory-tier title. That's probably doable for a staff that's been making nothing but smartphone titles for so long. They'll probably mention they're staffing up for more ambitious titles like the ones they'd produced before.

Honestly making games for Xbox has to be a lot better than making smartphone games.



What their games look like on XSX is good enough for me tbqh
