The Xbox brand could have a wild card in the wings.
Sony has had a bumper year thus far with the PS4 with titles like Gravity Rush 2, Tales of Berseria, Yakuza 0, Persona 5 and Horizon: Zero Dawn. Meanwhile, the number of high-profile releases found primarily on Xbox One has been rather sparse. Microsoft has reassured fans that it’s committed to new experiences heading into E3 2017 and that could be truer than we thought.
According to industry insider Shinobi602 on Twitter, Microsoft has marketing on a “major unannounced AAA” title. He then says “Bring on E3”, thus indicating that it will be showcased at Microsoft’s E3 presser.
It should be noted that the “major unannounced AAA” doesn’t mean “exclusive”. Instead, it could be a situation similar to Destiny where Sony has handled the lion’s share of marketing as part of its timed exclusive content deal with Activision. This unannounced title could very well be a timed exclusive for the Xbox One or even have a significant portion of timed exclusive content for Microsoft’s platform.
Either way, we’ll know for sure at Microsoft’s E3 presser on June 11th so stay tuned for more details.
