Phil Spencer was answering questions on Twitter, and was asked about new IP’s for Xbox One in 2017. Phil confirmed that there will be new IP’s releasing this year, and will not be led by the usual Gears Of War or Halo game which confirms Halo 6 is not a 2017 title also. Yes, it’s true there’s Halo Wars 2 but it sounds like Phil Spencer was talking about the end of the year rather than early 2017.
There will however be another Forza title as Forza 7 has already been confirmed, and will most likely be shown off at E3 2017 so it’s not going to be a completely full of new experiences but at least there are new IP’s coming because many are sick of the usual games being hyped up as Xbox One’s major releases for the year. It is time for Xbox to start new franchises, and move away from the old experiences that many are beyond tired with.
@Analcletoo XB1 games shipping this year are different for us. not Halo FPS/Gears led, new experiences with different IP, will be fun year
