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

With Forza Horizon being my favourite racing game series at the moment i'm basically waiting for the fourth one. Only a whole new F-Zero or Wave Race might be better (for me).
Halo 6, well, i'm waiting for it and hoping the campaign gets better. And honestly, there's nothing wrong with sequels. I'd love a new Sunset Overdrive like many others did.

But MS needs new IP's as well. They don't need new stuff instead of the older IP's, they simply need both. And it mus be more and better with Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 being more or less underwhelming.

It doesn't need to be big every time though. I really enjoyed ReCore, even though it was very far from perfect. Other smaller to mid budget games, but please more polished than ReCore, would be great.

I did plug my One back in a month ago and do all the updates. Haven't played anything on it yet, though. Halo 6 would at least get me to use the system again. I've given up on Alan Wake 2 :(

MS has their staple of franchises just like Nintendo and Sony. I would wish that they made some variations, for example making a Gears RPG, Halo SHMUP and so on but I always welcome new games in these franchises =).

So if reddit-user SoMeh's leaks turns out to be true, MS are going to announce (yet) another Halo, Gears and Forza game on E3 this year.

The same user also said Sunset Overdrive 2 is going to be announced, but with Insomniac working on Spider-Man for PS4 I remain highly sceptical on this one.

 

But if those leaks about Halo, Gears and Forza turns out to be true, how would you react? Aren't xbox gamers looking for new franchises at this point, or do you think another entry in the same three franchises is enough?

Dont Microsoft OWN the IP for Sunset Overdrive ?
Maybe the next game is made by another studio MS put to work on it, and not insomniac?



I would love another Halo and Gears with better stories this time.

Nope, Sunset Overdrive is owned by Insomniac, MS were the publishers.

This rumor was already debunked yesterday that Sunset Overdrive 2 isnt in development. I think Insomniac whole studio is building Spiderman and after that they will start next spiderman game as was teased/said as being multiple spiderman games. The Fallout game was actually leaked November 2017 in 4chan and the reddit leaker might he took it from there. Halo, Gears and Forza are pretty much given. Halo 6 probably get teased and they will show Forza Horizon and Gears spinoff. Other than that I dont expect much else for reminder of the generation, maybe some super lucky tale sized game.



I’ll be watching their conference solely for more Ori 2 info. If all they have is Halo, Gears and Forza, I’ll keep ignoring MS. These games are not really my thing



I make game analyses on youtube:

A. His leaks are BS for multiple reasons

B. I do think we'll see either a Halo or Gears spinoff this year at E3 (not a main game), as well as Forza Horizon 4. And that is ok, those 3 are core series for MS, there is nothing wrong with them releasing games in those series every few years.
