Heading into E3, the big mystery is always what games each publisher is going to announce and show off for the first time. But this year for Microsoft, the bigger question might be: What games won’t make it to the big show? The company’s lineup of Xbox/Windows 10 exclusives is massive and promising. There’s ReCore, the new game from Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune and a studio founded by key developers of Metroid Prime. There’s Sea Of Thieves, the first original game from Rare in 10 years that doesn’t have the word “Kinect” in the title. There’s Scalebound, from Hideki Kamiya and the maniacs at Platinum Games. Gears Of War 4, Crackdown 3, Halo Wars 2, a mountain of independent games—the list goes on and on. What a far cry from just a few years ago when a significant percentage of this conference was devoted to showing how cool fantasy football was on Xbox One.
The show begins at 9:30 a.m. Pacific.
