If you were worried about Microsoft not bringing their first party titles to E3 2019, don’t be. Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed on Twitter that there will be 14 games developed by Xbox Game Studios at the show. As per Spencer, these are more first party titles “than we’ve ever had in the show”.
While it’s a given that games like Halo Infinite, Gears 5, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps will appear, the number is significant, given the companies that Microsoft acquired last year. These include Ninja Theory, Obsidian Entertainment, Playground Games, inXile, and Compulsion Games. What titles these studios could potentially showcase has us most excited.
Microsoft’s E3 2019 presser will take place on June 9th at 1 PM PDT and will last for two hours. It’s worth noting that a number of third party titles like CD Projekt RED’s Cyberpunk 2077 could appear, just like last year. With Sony skipping E3 this year, the stage is set for Microsoft to make an impact. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
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
