Xbox One Exclusives Crackdown, Scalebound Won't Be at E3 2015

Microsoft states that it's holding onto big exclusives for Gamescom later in the summer.


Microsoft's E3 lineup has just gotten a little smaller.

According to a post on the Xbox website, Scalebound, Crackdown, and Quantum Break will not show up at the conference next week. Instead, Microsoft will hold off on showing these Xbox One exclusives until Gamescom, which takes place in Germany in early August.

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer explained, "Having a jam-packed lineup of games to show at E3 means that there simply isn't enough time to give each of our upcoming titles its well-deserved time in the spotlight. We've decided to save some of our most eagerly-awaited future titles for Gamescom in August."

Additionally, he stated that the company will have more Windows and Xbox games to reveal at Gamescom alongside news about announced games.

Microsoft still has a lot of games to show off at E3. Rise of the Tomb Raider, Halo 5: Guardians, and Forza Motorsport 6 are among the upcoming Xbox One exclusives that the company will bring to the conference.

E3 takes place next week, and Microsoft's big press conference is on Monday. GameSpot editors recently discussed what they hope to see from Microsoft during the conference. You can find out all you need to know about E3 here.
