Xbox One: What about the games?

2 min read


If there was one thing missing from Microsoft’s Xbox One (or Xbone, if you like) event, it was popular, mainstream rappers. It was also missing something quite important for a games console…and that’s games. We know it’s getting Call of Duty, Forza and a new, exclusive, Remedy IP called Quantum Break. But what else can Xboners expect on their console entertainment service set-top boxes?

Xbox One Exclusives

Forza Motorsport 5 – Microsoft Studios/Turn 10
Quantum Break – Microsoft Studios/Remedy Entertainment

Multi-Platform Games

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag – Ubisoft/Ubisoft Montreal
Battlefield 4 – Electronic Arts/DICE
Call of Duty: Ghosts – Activision/Infinity Ward
Destiny – Activision/Bungie
FIFA 14 – EA Sports/EA Canada
Madden NFL 25 – EA Sports/EA Tiburon
NBA Live – EA Sports/EA Tiburon
Thief – Square Enix/Eidos Montreal
UFC – EA Sports/EA Canada
Watch Dogs – Ubisoft/Ubisoft Montreal

Those are the ones that have been confirmed – but there are a number of titles that have been announced for “next gen platforms,” a banner which quite probably includes the Xbox One.

The Evil Within – Bethesda/Tango Gameworks
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – CD Project Red
Wolfenstein The New Order – Bethesda/Machine Games

We’ve also been told that there are a number of core-focused exclusives to watch out for – and that of the announced 15 new exclusive IP’s, at least 5 of them are targeted at gamers. We’ also know that Ms will be resurrecting one of RARE’s franchises – so Killer Instinct, Conker, Banjo Kazooie? Maybe even Battletoads?

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
