Xbox Head, Phil Spencer, has mentioned that the Xbox One will be getting different IP later this year. It won’t be just about Halo or Gears of War all of the time.
A fan asked Spencer on Twitter if the Xbox One will be getting new and different IP in 2017. After all, there is some criticism that Microsoft focuses too much on Gears/Halo/Forza.
Spencer replied: “XB1 games shipping this year are different for us. Not Halo FPS/Gears led, new experiences with different IP, will be fun year“.
We do know that Microsoft is set to release Crackdown 3 and Sea of Thieves later this year. Unfortunately, Scalebound is off the cards as that game was recently cancelled.
Hopefully Microsoft is able to provide exciting new IP to the Xbox platform. After all, the company will be releasing the Xbox Scorpio console later this year. Not to mention Microsoft needs to compete with both the PS4 Pro and Nintendo Switch.
