Microsoft Will Be Presenting 14 First-Party Games This E3 2019
Just last year, Microsoft went on a shopping spree of developers. The studios that they were able to acquire are now called the Xbox Games Studios. This is actually in addition to the other studios under their umbrella as well as The Initiative. Microsoft is looking at these studios to serve out those first party titles.
What’s great about this is that the studios that they were able to get are not just for show but was actually able to deliver. Phil Spencer an Xbox boss announced that they will be featuring 14 Xbox Game Studio games at E3 2019, this is actually the most number of first-party games that the company was able to bring to any E3 event.
Just finishing our final E3 rehearsal here with the team in Redmond. Feel really good about the briefing. Lots to show. We have 14 Xbox Game Studios games in the show this year, more first party games than we’ve ever had in the show. Fun times. #XboxE3— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) May 30, 2019
The exact list of games was not given but some of our guesses include Gears 5 and Halo Infinite. In some previous reports, it has been said that Playground Games is working on an open-world RPG that most probably is the next Fable. Some of the studios that Microsoft was able to get were actually working on other games before being acquired, those games probably don’t count.
