Microsoft is looking to claim the gaming industry.
It’s no surprise that each major developer is looking to make their conference that much better than other. We have no reason to believe that’s is the case when it comes to one of the world’s leading home consoles, Xbox One. Before the event this evening, Xbox’s Phil Spencer dropped a tweet that hinted towards something more than just a standard conference. The famous face of Xbox is making sure fans tune into an eventful event by letting fans know that there would be at least 15 world premieres announced during their stream.
Although many may think it’s nothing more than talk, don’t forget that last year, three of the biggest companies announced over 50 debut titles combined. In fact, fifteen titles don’t seem unreasonable as it may consider it low for Xbox standards. However, this how you market as fans will be anxious to learn whether or not these 15 games will deliver. The biggest questions may be with some of the games that’s been rumored to be at Xbox E3 Conference such as Crackdown 3 being delayed, Borderlands 3, Gears of War 5, or Halo 6. We may not know any of this for now, but we do know that Xbox is willing to put its neck out there with these 15 world premieres and the fact that Phil is saying, “…and much, much more” is a gamble that I’m willing to bet on.
The Xbox E3 Conference will be held at 1PM (PST)/ 4PM (EST) broadcasting live on the Microsoft theater in Downtown LA on Twitch, YouTube, & Mixer.
