Bet you didn't see this coming - Microsoft is to make more Fable, more Halo, more Forza and more Gears of War.
Microsoft's senior director of PC and mobile gaming, Kevin Unangst, has told Gamasutra that we'll see more of Microsoft's key properties in the future.
"You're going to see us do more with Forza, with Halo, with Fable; all the franchises," he told the site when asked about if they'd be expanding the universes of titles like Halo further.
It's not all about those IPs, though. "As a first-party studio, our job is also to experiment, also to lead the way, set the example... things like the integration between Kinect and the phone."
When pressed by Gama on Microsoft's so far lacking 2011 line-up and the lack of games other than Forza 4 and Gears of War 3 for this fall, Unangst was clear that there is more waiting in the wings.
"This is not the sum total. Although I love what we’re doing... there’s games that we’ve already even talked about coming this year. Games like Forza 4, games like Kinect Star Wars that we’re not yet talking about. That, and some other surprises I’m sure you’ll see and hear from us at E3 about."
So there you have it, folks. Surprises at E3 and more Halo. The sun will also rise tomorrow. Check out the full interview over at Gamasutra.
