Huhujen mukaan Microsoftin E3-julkistukset ovat vuotaneet tahattomasti julkisuuteen ennen aikojaan.
Microsoft aikoo panostaa tänä vuonna E3-esiintymiseensa aiempaa suuremmalla tarmolla, sillä Sony ei ole mukana kekkereissä. NeoGaf-postauksen mukaan Microsoftin lineuppi näyttäisi E3-karnevaalin osalta seuraavalta:
“- Section Start –
Halo Infinite – Info Dump + New Trailer and Holiday 2020 Release (Cross-gen)
Gears 5 – Full Gameplay Reveal/Demo Walkthrough + Multiplayer and September Release Date is indeed real (I knew about this before the leak happened)
Gears Tactics – Info Dump + New Trailer and Release Date for PC Later this year
Ori and the WIll of the Wisps – Final trailer with final release date for Later this year
Bleeding Edge – Ninja’s Theory next game (I am hearing 2 conflicting reports, 1 stating that it’s a co-op horde-like Sci-fi shooter with aliens across different planets and intense boss fights and another that it’s an arena multiplayer PvP game – have no 100% confirmation yet on what exactly it is. One thing for sure that it is indeed a game in a Sci-fi universe and most likely a cross-gen title as well for 2020)
The Outer Worlds – Info Dumb, New Gameplay Trailer and a Release Date
Cyberpunk 2077 – Progress Update/New Gameplay Trailer and a Targeted Date
Age of Empires IV – Info Dump/Gameplay Reveal- 2020 Release
Fable – This is nothing new or real secret at this point. Honestly, worst kept secret, this was leaked back in end of 2017/early 2018 on Eurogamer if I am not mistaken. It was said that Playgrounds is working on a Open World game and then later speculated that it was Fable. However, it was not confirmed if it was 100% Fable but rather just Open World RPG. Some people are hoping that it is not Fable and a brand new open world RPG IP and of course the Fable fans do want it to be Fable.
However, I can now confirm that it is indeed a Fable game. Some speculate it’s actually Fable IV, but the reality is that it’s a new beginning for the Fable franchise. This game started development in late 2017 and has been in development now for little over 2 years now. It is a next-gen game ONLY and you will most likely NOT see it until 2021 at retail at the earliest. You will see a glimpse of a small teaser trailer most likely at this year’s E3 and in 2020 you will see much more of the game.
Sea of Thieves – Joe Neate and Mike Chapman confirmed in one of their recent dev updates on their official Sea of Thieves YouTube channel that they will be in teaser mode for the upcoming Sea of Thieves content at this year’s E3.
Battletoads – They were announced last year with a 2019 release date. We will see some gameplay and finally see how the game looks, plays and feels along with a final release target as well.
Project xCloud – Info Dump, Public Test Dates/Rollouts – This will be Microsoft’s one of the biggest if not the biggest focus this year prior to next-gen system launches. This is where we will be helping them get ready for a solid year or so before new systems get out in the wild.
Xbox Lockhart/Xbox Anaconda – Scorpio style reveal (Similar to E3 2016’s Scorpio/Xbox One X Tease) No physical look of the console, but a baseline of specs including tFlops, Ram, Bandwidth, CPU, SSD and of course Ray-tracing – this is considered a small reveal. Full reveal most likely next year, we’re still a year and a half of from the launch of new-gen system and there are still many 3rd party and 1st party title to come out yet on current gen systems, but yes the tease and the obvious semi-reveal at this point is well on its way.
It’s Going to be a BIG Party – With Microsoft being the only console manufacturer that’s holding a physical E3 conference this year – expect A LOT of NEW 3rd Party Stuff.
– Section End –
– Section Start –
MechAssault/Mech Game – Reveal (Microsoft owns the right to MechAssault, for those who do not know. There is a VERY high chance that a new mech game has been in the works and it will be finally revealed here)
Next Forza Motorsport + Forza Horizon 4 Expansion #2 – Reveal (It’s been a while since Turn 10 has showcased anything and this year they’re skipping Forza most likely to release with next-gen systems next year as a 1st party next-gen racing experience. Very good chance of a tease/reveal) it’s also highly expected that the new Forza Horizon 4 expansion will make an appearance as well.
Capcom Next Big Title – Reveal (Every year and every E3 and honestly this whole generation Capcom has been on an insane roll of satisfying their fans and fulfilling their dreams. Shortly after the release of Resident Evil 2 Remake – rumors of Resident Evil 8 and Resident Evil 3 Remake started to pop around all over the web. However, Capcom has also other titles under their belt and they’ve recently said that Dead Rising is still an important franchise to them to this day.
While I do not know which game it may be exactly that there are revealing. I do know that they’re going to be doing what the fans want and yes they also never ever denied the existence of Dino Crisis and stated not too long ago on their official twitter that they would love to do it depending on how bad the fans want it – here is the link to the tweet. So the story with Capcom is, they’re open to many things and the question is rather when to reveal what and where.
I personally doubt it Resident Evil 8, I believe that’s still early and if anything Resident Evil 3 Remake will come first as far as the release schedule goes. Now is it Dead Rising 5 or Dino Crisis Reboot? That’s really hard to say, Dead Rising has a strong Xbox history, so I could see this as something either for end of 2020 as another launch title or they might want to shock everyone with a Dino Crisis tease (Similar to how they did with DMC 5 last year and Monster Hunter: World in 2017 @ Sony’s Conference) or who knows, maybe they’re working on something completely new and unexpected)
More Japanese Games/Teams – Last year’s E3 Microsoft had quite a lot of Japanese developers at their stage. I expect more of the same this year with a few surprises as well.

Kaikkiin paljastuksiin tulee kuitenkin yksityiskohdista huolimatta suhtautua tässä vaiheessa vielä huhuina.
