Xbox one game rumours
Xbox one game rumours for 2018 look pretty great, if these discreet rumours are to be believed. One known source cited Fable and a Forza Horizon 4 set in Japan as possible additions to the lineup.
The user, Klobrille of ResetEra phrased each of these predictions as hypothetical questions.
However, given the pedigree of the source some fans believe there may be more to it. Here’s a
recap of what’s implied.
Players may revisit Albion in a new Fable game being developed by a U.K. studio.
A third-person Perfect Dark is in development with help from Gears Of War’s Coalition.
The Crackdown 3 campaign offers four-player co-op.
A future Forza Horizon game is set in Japan.
Age Of Empires 4 is super early in development. Xbox’s biggest franchise (Halo perhaps) will have something with really high player counts in the future.
MechWarrior is far from dead.
Very light allusions to Conker, Banjo and Crimson Skies. Those may be actual musings rather than a part of the rumour itself.
While a sceptic would perceive these Xbox game rumours as speculative trash, the details come from a fairly reputable source. For those who haven’t heard of Klobrille before, a reddit user of the same name correctly leaked the vast majority of Microsoft’s E3 2016 reveals two weeks in advance. This includes Forza Horizon 3’s Australian setting, the existence of State Of Decay 2 and more. Not all of the listed claims were exactly correct, but there was a ring of truth to most of them.
With that passable level of credibility established, there’s a good amount here that just sounds right.
Bringing Forza Horizon 4 to Japan after Australia is a pretty great idea. It’s a new location that’s
vastly different from the previous one. Oh, and that UK studio making a new Fable? What better
choice could there be than Rare to head up the project. Once major development on Sea Of Thieves
More first-party games coming says Xbox Head Phil Spencer. Given Coalitions recent role as a support studio for the console version of PUBG, we could see a small team working on something like Perfect Dark. Between that and MechWarrior, Phil Spencer and company seem to be reintroducing Microsoft’s classic franchises. It’s a great answer to Nintendo’s stellar 2017 exclusives lineup. Spencer has promised that Microsoft is committed to growing on a creative level. So if these rumours are true, he wasn’t joking. There’s no guarantee that these games will release in 2018, but even if some of them do it’s a
pretty solid start.
All of these rumours could be false despite sounding fairly plausible. However there’s no denying that
Xbox One gamers could use some positive news in the software department. If any of this is
accurate there’s certainly a lot to appreciate. If Crackdown 3 releases later this year without four-
player co-op, we’ll have a solid idea of how this report should be gauged.
Which of these rumours is most likely to be true and which one would you most like to happen?
