I was trying to list the 14 Xbox Games Studios games that I thought would be there and I couldn’t get to 14:

  1. Gears 5
  2. Gears Tactics
  3. Ori and the Will of the Wisps
  4. Forza Horizon 4 DLC
  5. We Happy Few DLC
  6. Halo: The Master Chief Collection for PC
  7. Halo: Infinite
  8. Fable 4
  9. Ninja Theory’s new co-op joint
  10. The Outer Worlds
  11. Minecraft something
  12. Gears Pop

EDIT: 13. Battletoads

a new obsidian game that isn’t outer worlds maybe?

I would be into that. I don’t know if that Cuphead DLC ever came out, but I could see that being there, or some other Microsoft-published indie title.

Of course, the 14th game of my heart is Sunset Overdrive 2, but I’m pretty sure Insomniac is up to their eyeballs in Spider-Man 2 right now.


Forza 8, or are they at 9 now? There will probably be at least one car at this show.

I was under the impression that full Forza games were taking a break this year. I assume Turn 10 will be back next fall with Forza 8.

It could be entirely possible that Turn 10 could be here with a Forza tech demo.

Wait, does that mean we need to wait until 2021 for FH5? Fuuuuuuck

All I really want is to see more Tunic.


I imagine that We Happy Few stuff and The Outer Worlds aren’t going to count as Xbox Games Studios games since those aren’t published by Microsoft.

I would be happy to see that. I tried to skew my list to as broad a definition of “Xbox Game Studios” as I could so as to be pleasantly surprised by any new IP or surprise collaborations that might come out of today’s presentation.

Well i’m excited to hear about any third party games that will come out, most notably the Fromsoft game. But I guess my longshot is that gamepass for switch would be the biggest happy suprise i want. I just want to play outer wilds and Ori haha.

I still find it weird how excited I get for Microsoft conferances, because they’re usually pretty enjoyable even though I don’t own an Xbox and likely never will. Like, last year was the announcement for Devil May Cry 5, a game I’d been waiting for since I first started high school, and now that it’s out is absolutely one of my all time favourites. That’s a lot to live up too.

Also, it’s weird not having an E3 where I’m not somewhat hoping for Devil May Cry 5.

Battletoads Shadow Drop. Calling it now. Or like releasing within a month.

Well apparently there are tons of rumors that Miyamoto is going to be at Microsoft’s conference. Its getting spicy!




ResetEra is going to melt and I will bring the marshmallows.

My one prediction: Halo Reach is out on PC at some point during the conference.

Y’all I’m excited!
