Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft’s Xbox division and Microsoft Studio, has confirmed that both Crackdown and Scalebound will join Quantum Break in skipping E3 this year. Instead, the two exclusive Xbox One titles will be shown at the forefront at Gamescom again in August.
E3 is just the beginning. Over the next few weeks and months, we’ll be sharing many more of our plans for 2015 and beyond. 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. Rest assured that titles like Crackdown, Quantum Break and Scalebound will be front and center at gamescom along with new game reveals for both Xbox One and Windows 10.
Spencer also promises “the greatest games lineup in Xbox console history,” led by Halo 5: Guardians, Forza Motorsport 6, and Rise of the Tomb Raider, as well as new game reveals and trailers, and during Microsoft’s Conference on Monday, June 15 at 9:30am PST/12:30pm EST
