Xbox E3 Show Will Have New IP as Part of "Greatest Games Lineup in Xbox History"

What are you hoping to see?


As suspected, Microsoft has now confirmed that it will reveal new IP during its briefing at E3 next month. Xbox boss Phil Spencer revealed the news on Twitter, bluntly stating, "We will have new IP at E3."

He didn't share any further specifics. Last month, Spencer sounded unsure about Microsoft's new IP plans for E3, as he said that Microsoft "should have new exclusive IP at E3."

Overall, Microsoft boasts that its E3 showing this year--which will focus more on first-party games--will highlight the "greatest games lineup in Xbox history." It's a bold claim, for sure, but it's not the first time Microsoft has talked about having a huge games lineup.

Back in November, Spencer said the Xbox One's holiday lineup was so stuffed that Microsoft may need to delay some projects. That's exactly what's happened, as Microsoft recently pushed Quantum Break to 2016. The company still has marquee games like Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Forza Motorsport 6, and possibly a Gears of War remaster scheduled to launch this holiday for Xbox One.

Also on Twitter, Spencer shared that Microsoft will talk about more than just games during its E3 briefing. "There are some platform features we'll want to talk about," he said. He didn't go into specifics.

Finally, Spencer addressed the fact that Microsoft will be the first of the Big Three (Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo) to hold its briefing this year. He's not worried about going first.

"We set our tone and show," he said. "Others can react if they want to, but I'm comfortable being the first platform briefing."

As announced yesterday, Microsoft's E3 2015 briefing is scheduled for 9:30 AM PDT on Monday, June 15. GameSpot will bring you all the news as it's announced.
