I’m at a bit of a weird place with Microsoft. On one hand, I’ve been steadily enjoying both exclusive and multi-platform games on my Xbox One, but on the other hand, most of the year remaining has little to no exclusive titles that interest me or have wooed me enough to become excited. I’m expecting there to be a lot of Halo, Forza, Fable and maybe even some Sunset Overdrive to top it off.
But what I truly want to see is new and exciting experiences for the Xbox One, and to have every game that was previously announced accounted for in some way, shape or form by the end of their conference. Where is D4, for example? The Kinect based adventure game has been largely quiet and absent from all media exposure since it was unveiled almost a year ago.
I’ll be pretty blunt, I’m not interested in a new Gears or a new Forza game at all. So what I’d really like to see from Microsoft is the inevitable Killer Instinct announcement for Season 2. I’d also love to see if the rumours that Microsoft have secured a PlatinumGames-developed exclusive title were true too, since they’re easily one of my favourite developers of the past generation just gone. I’m not sure if I want this, but I’m also expecting to see a new Ryse announced too, since it was rumoured so long ago.
