Xbox E3 2017 Predictions: Games
To date, Microsoft hasn’t said which titles will have upgraded visuals for Xbox Scorpio. Look for those to finally get revealed. The company can’t sell an expensive new console without some titles to showcase what it can do. Developers aren’t allowed to make a game exclusively for Xbox Scorpio, so these games will have Xbox One and Xbox One S versions too.
We believe that three exclusive titles could get new teasers. Crackdown 3 arrives sometime in 2017, according to Microsoft. Sea of Thieves, an online pirate simulation, should launch within the year. Microsoft will want to highlight these games. Rumors indicate a new Forza game will support Xbox Scorpio’s upgraded graphics. If that’s true, we’ll see it at the show too. A new Forza game comes to Xbox ever year. The company doesn’t go a year without showcasing Xbox games developed by small studios through its [email protected] program.
The company doesn’t go a year without showcasing Xbox games developed by small studios through its [email protected] program. Expect a sizzle real stuffed with games like We Happy Few.
Don’t expect new Gears of War titles at the show. Gears of War 4 just arrived last year. A new Halo game won’t be shown at the event either, 343 Industries has confirmed. Microsoft canceled Scalebound, another Xbox exclusive game, in January. It won’t be at the show either.
