So somebody decided to leak Microsoft's E3 plan *cough* wishlist *cough* right after Sony's leaked.


Source: http://thecutanddry....ft-e3-2014.html



LEAKED - Microsoft E3 2014 On the DL. This info comes from the highest source and contains near full details of Microsoft E3 2014 conference. I have had corroborations from a number of sources to its legitimacy:
  • Ryse 2 is in development and will be announced at the show in a real-time in-game trailer. Gone is the Roman period, enter the medieval setting. The game will offer more freedom of exploration and a refined combat system. The main character is a sell-sword of sorts with a greater destiny. This game looks beyond belief. No release date (possibly late 2016)

  •  Forza Horizon 2 will be announced for release in October 2014 vai Playground Games. It will once again be open world and set in Louisiana, Missisips, New Mexico, Texas and Arkansas. Full day/night cycle, real time weather. Estimated 80 hour single player.

  • 343 Industries will unveil Halo 2: Anniversary. This is a full (multiplayer included) visual makeover of Halo 2, it will also include the same options as Halo Anniversary (Including both visual modes) skulls etc. It will include the E3 2003 mission as a bonus unlockable and the maps from the PC version.

  • No Turn 10 this year except in supportive capacity of Playground.

  • Halo 5 will get its release date. 

  • Rare is prepping a re-boot of Battletoads and Perfect Dark. BT will initially be a download only title (see Killer Instinct) and is set to run at 60fps. Perfect Dark is looking to be rebooted into a Third Person Adventure game - Similar to Uncharted.

  • Epic will be there to unveil their new game base on the Samaritan demo from 2012. This will be XBOX ONE EXCLUSIVE as Microsoft is the publisher. Possibly the best looking game of this generation.

  • Good Science Studios will unveil their Kinect Only game "EchoBlack" - The game is controlled via the use of Kinect and the player plots through an adventure game drawn as by echolocation. The vibrancy of the world depicted alters depending on the pitch, loudness and location of the players voice. No release date.

  • Twisted Pixel will reveal their next digital game which is set in a sci-fantasy planet of Dekelsus. Possibly a 2.5D platformer. 

  • Black Tusk will have a CGI trailer for Gears of War : Lazurus which will show the direction the series is heading.

  • Lift London will be showing 2 projects. They are small and digital based. No other details unfortunately. 

  •  Lionhead will have a brief gameplay of Fable Legends and bow out with a teaser of their next project which is set in a post-cataclysmic Earth decimated by egg shaped objects (possibly aliens)

  •  Frontier Development is working on a family friendly Kinect title for release in 2014

  • Phantom Dust : Sacrifice is being worked on by Grounding Inc and will be a prequel to the original. The game will be episodic in nature.

  • Quantum Break will be out November 2014 - There is a multiplayer mode - Part 1 of a trilogy. The game has had a significant graphical upgrade since last year. 

  • Sunset Overdrive is aiming for release on the last weeks of August/Early September. Graphically it looks like the CG trailer and the Parkour element of the game is a mix of Sonic, Jet Set Radio and Ratchet and Clank. 

  • The secret Japanese game is coming from Platinum Games and is a Viewtiful Joe like action- beat em up. Codename is "RugPuddle". This is part one of a multiple game deal with Microsoft to publish other titles in the future.

  • Leap Experience Pioneers will announce their game which looks like a TPS/RPG hybrid set in a Sci-fi universe. Looks very Mass Effect inspired. COMING 2015

  • Platform Next Games is a new studio. They will be presenting an unnamed tech demo based on an upcoming project (similar to Black Tusks demo last year) which appears to be set in either an ancient or fantasy setting.

  • Games With Gold will be announced for Xbox One starting immediately. The aim is that it will be 1 retail game a month, 1 digital game per month of a choice of 2. This will evolve as time goes on.

  • Microsoft will announce the date when retail units can be activated as development kits, it will be before October 2014.

  • Crackdown: Skyline - Coming 2015 - No other info, not even the developer. Microsoft Studios.

  • Multi-platforms are as follows:
The Division (Xbox One is now lead platform)
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Fallout 4
EA game (not specified here)

Exclusive/Timed DLC on all.

That's all.


Too good+long to be true but I will end with this :p

Together with the Sony list these are really just looking like fantasy...if half of this is real we'd be very happy. One can dream though!

Probably the only game in the list that interests me atm.

Perfect Dark and a Viewtiful Joe type game sounds good to me.


But yeah, i wouldn't read too much into this.

I wouldn't be surprised if they're in reboot mode, what started with KI can easily keep going with reboots for Perfect Dark and other IPs they own.  Having said that though, the timing of these two "leaks" for both MS and Sony is suspect.

Who does not get bored after 10mins on any "Smart" phone game? 5mins to start up my laptop and at least have a decent game running with its own logic.....


I cannot call any "Smart Phone" smart, unless it does something for me more or equal to than my pc (And no, basic email is not "Smart")

Interesting list, I'm looking forward to hearing more on Horizon 2, loved the first. 


Hopefully the games using Kinect should be worth checking out too. 


Need to add the event stream (along with the Sony one) to my calender :p

Wasn't samaritan revealed as a pre tech demo with no game or universe behind it, just a "see what we can do" tech demo, like the nviia demos ?

I see that all my wishes game-wise have been fulfilled.


Therefore I automatically cannot believe this  :/




I want to believe.

Also, that Kinect game looks intriguing. Though I imagine I'd look a fool sitting there playing a game going "ping....ping...ping....PING.....ping" to navigate  :rofl:

While i'm not saying that rumor list is bad it just... not that exciting. Much of it is also rather predictable, making it that much less interesting.
