Microsoft to reveal unannounced Xbox One title at gamescom – rumour

Wednesday, 7th August 2013 12:54 GMT By Dave Cook

Microsoft has said to be revealing a new unannounced Xbox One title at gamescom this month. Stop the bus! It’s a shocker!

Speaking with Gamefront – as translated by GAF – an alleged source close to Microsoft told the site, “”Yes, there will be an unannounced game for Xbox One shown for the first time.”

Yeah, it’s so thin it’s anorexic, but considering recent rumours regarding Microsoft franchises as of late, we could be looking at something interesting if this is true.

For one, what about Phil Spencer’s recent harping about Crackdown?

Or how about what about that rumoured Unreal Engine 4 project over at Lionhead?

Thoughts?

    Edit: From Wikipedia apparently MS have 17 exclusives although if we disregard a few Kinect only titles and re-releases then it becomes less.

    2013: Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Killer Instinct, LocoCycle, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, Ryse: Son of Rome and Zoo Tycoon.

    2014: Below, Crimson Dragon, D4, Halo 5, Kinect Sports Rivals, Powerstar Golf, Project Spark, Quantum Break and Sunset Overdrive.

    @9 I know you may be trolling, but if L4D3 free *was* an exclusive (well, aside from the PC edition) that’d be massive lure for me in buying an XB1. They enjoyed the same exclusivity for 1 & 2, why not 3?

    @3 I’m sure you’re missing a few, for example Titanfall isn’t there.

    @12 A new cross-license title, like AVP, it’s Gears of Minecraft. You have to out-tunnel the Locusts and you can’t get any lumber until you find a lancer. Retro lancer is for killing the sheep.

    @2 A new Gears is a given at some point. But i really do wonder where they want to go with Gears. The story is really over…..so….what?

    I hope this is Fable 4 and that they show that they learned from their mistakes. So a good combat system, more adult/dark, and more similar to Witcher than old Fables. Hey i can hope.

    @17 well they’ve shown a criminal past for Marcus, Cole and Baird so far, lol, just need to see what illegal shit Dom has done in the past and we have the quadfecta.

    Gears of War: Liquor Store. Dom knocks over a liquor store with a lancer, spends the rest of the day hiding from the cops in a trash can.

    It’s a short game, but pretty good because it has a gun with a chainsaw on it anyway.

    Fable, blates.

    Actually, L4D3 does make more sense.

  23. Dragon246

    Well duh, they will do that, so we Sony,Ubi and many others.
    I am skeptical about their conference though, they just went all out at E3, and have probably shown 90% of their first party X1 games (out of 15), whereas Sony has 20 first games for the first year, and have shown only a handful of them, probably keeping most of Gamescom by their own admission, as EU is their biggest market.

    Im predicting this is how it will happen. Phil Spencer will walk out on stage, slowly lift up his shirt sleeve and reveal a GTA5 tattoo.

    Crackdown 3 would be a must have for me personally – just love that whole game and would love it on a bigger scale with bigger city or maybe a coupd of cities – woot

    Can’t believe I never pieced the two together, Hopefully it is Crackdown 3. That’s a borderline console seller at the moment for me.

    Well considering that I don’t play games on my PC and Titanfall isn’t going to play on my PS4, I’m going to consider Titanfall a console exclusive. But that’s just me…

    Titanfall is a Microsoft exclusive. Its on Windows PC’s, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. If they dont want to call Titanfall an exclusive because it’s launching on PC as well, then they can’t call Warframe and Planetside 2 a playstation exclusive because they are also on PC as well.

    @40+41
    if we were to speak technically Titanfall is not exclusive (multiple platforms), nor console exclusive (two consoles) at best its next gen version is next gen exclusive (and even then its not a official term).Those two examples are console exclusive not PlayStation exclusive: PlayStation console exclusive is that term (again not official).

    I love it when people use terminology how they see fit even if its not true.

    #42 8 months ago
  43. skydivinggamer

    False it has nothing to do with microsoft. Unlike MS SONY actually own PS2 and unlike titanfall which will most certainly come to PS4 aftet awhile you will never come to XB1, its only a timed exclusive

    They confirm nor deny about Titanfall on the PS4. Xbox One Cloud is nothing that Amazon or Sony could eventually do. MS just took it upon themselves to use their own cloud service in a way that Amazon does just cheaper.

    @ Legendaryboss
    I love it when technical people get so anal that they can exclusively stick it up their anus…

    The general point is that it won’t be on PS4 and deep down it irks people cause the game looks amazing. To be fair Sony has games that won’t be coming to the X1. It’s this reason why I preordered both systems. I don’t wanna miss shit. You can say I wanna make sure that I’m “inclusive” to all the “exclusives”.

    “It’s definitely not out of the question,” – that’s what the devs themselves have said.

    @46
    Nothing to do with being anal, its technically the truth you wanna argue against that; good luck. Just because you’re getting it on one system doesn’t make it exclusive. Deep Down’s publisher Capcom don’t know if its exclusive or not and Titanfall see 47/45

    Thats why i said “I love it when people use terminology how they see fit even if its not true.”

    But cheap remarks will get you nowhere.

    Well Sony fanboy, while your waiting for Titanfall to come out in 2015, I’ll be enjoying it in 2014. Exclusively.

    @49
    Funny… PS3fanboy calls me a Xbot/PC Master Race Member, Francis calls me a Nintendo Hater, other members have called me balanced and you are calling me Sony Fanboy: Somewhere along lines is hypocrisy within each of you fanboys and i have proved that plenty of times. Nintendo fanboy = Francis, PS3fanboy and Xbox fanboy you.

    Anyway my response is going to be similar to what i told those two: Universal gamer.

    Until you can put your money where your mouth is as usual you can’t prove shit just like the discussions we had before you couldn’t prove anything: talking right out of your ass.

    I don’t want Titanfall, so no waiting will be involved: so whether you enjoy or not i couldn’t give a damn.

    Done.

    Dude you continuously talk out your ass, arse, anus, rectum , I’ll let you decide which one you prefer talking out of.
    You have this attitude like your some Video Game Guru. This may be the reason you have people chewing you out all the time. Take the stick out your butt and maybe you might not get your feelings hurt, cause your no match for me or those that I’ve noticed verbally abusing you. I almost feel sorry for you… Nah, that was just gas. Your response to this article is a prime example of your need to draw negative attention to yourself. Don’t nobody give a damn why Titanfall shouldn’t be considered an exclusive. Those that are getting it only care that they’re getting it and Sony has to wait and wonder. Besides, the dual shock isn’t good for FPS so you not wanting it is understandable. But I’m getting it. Yes sir, I’m getting that exclusive as soon as it drops. I own a PC and a 360 but I want it on the Xbox One… Exclusively … I’m not even going to the store to buy it. I’m going to download it. And it bothers you… Cause that’s the type of person you are. A hater. Now your dismissed. Run along troll.

    @51
    Yet you can’t prove any of what your saying.

    Well clearly you give a damn to draw it out in that long paragraph.

    At the end of the day facts are facts. Not even planning to get PS4/One and you assume its because of controller preference? (Wrong). Don’t want Titanfall, full stop.

    You can’t prove i’m Sony fanboy so you move onto troll and hater: which you can’t prove again. I don’t care what you feel.

    Its not me whose been dismissed its you: when you come back with no proof let that be my victory.

    Edit: Seeing as you can’t read i said i don’t care if you enjoy it or not but stick your conspiracy theories its what your good at ;)

    Edit 2: My response you mean listing exclusives out of interest and proving you wrong on your definition of exclusive: oh wait you stick to rumours and your ill-advized/concieved opinion.

    @51 u need to chill out

    and DS has a legacy ”fighting, racing, FSP ..etc” so some of us DS is theEee GAME PAD

    and if titanfall turned out to be great not just another over rated FPS i’ll just get it on my PC and i won’t need to get a x180 for it so it NOT an exclusive #dealwithIt

    Console exclusivity refers to the status of a video game being released on only one video game console. Not two.
