There are more Xbox games coming soon than were previously announced at E3 2017, according to marketing boss Aaron Greenberg. Even as Microsoft did announce Xbox One exclusive titles such as Crackdown 3 and Sea of Thieves, the slate of games was relatively scant compared to the offerings of Sony -- which most crucially included releases like God of War and Spider-Man for PlayStation 4.
For some, it would appear as though Microsoft is slacking compared to other prominent video game studios, despite the fact that the company has been forthright in its intentions to only reveal the prominent titles and franchise games that are the closest to completion. Regardless, Greenberg was on hand to assure Xbox One owners that more production announcements are yet to be announced over the course of the coming year.
According to Gamreactor, Greenberg was determined that Xbox One players have more new games to look forward to within the 2017 calendar year than were revealed at E3 2017, though what shape and from which existing properties those productions might take has yet to be announced. In a discussion of what was and was not announced during the convention with regard to Microsoft's future plans for their console, Greenberg stated:
"It's a fine balance of how much do you show early. I can tell you that there are a lot of other projects happening for Xbox, with a lot of big titles that we're not talking about today."
Longtime Xbox aficionados can no doubt begin to speculate as to which projects might be currently in development -- with such big name titles as the Halo and Gears of War franchises immediately coming to mind -- though other smaller properties like Sunset Overdrive and Scalebound also might be the source of some interest and debate. Greenberg definitely doesn't want Microsoft devotees to worry too much, but without any official announcements it remains to be seen what 2017 will bring Xbox One gamers -- specifically for the newly announced Xbox One X 4K system.
Thankfully, the coming year will bring a whole new batch of backwards compatible titles to the Xbox One, but for now Crackdown 3 is perhaps the biggest new game from Microsoft to come out of E3 2017. PlayStation 4 owners may be privy to more new games on the immediate horizon, but if Greenberg is to be believed, then Microsoft may yet come back with more novel creative ventures in the near future.
