Xbox Will Have 14 First-Party Games at E3 2019. Here's What We Think Some of Them Will Be

We know some of the games already in development.

Without Sony around and Nintendo's online approach to E3 press conferences, Xbox will have the spotlight all to itself as the only console maker with a physical press conference. And Xbox boss Phil Spencer is taking the opportunity to go big. Spencer announced that there will be 14 Xbox Game Studios titles at the show this year.

Xbox Game Studios is the name for the group that makes up Xbox's first-party developers. They include teams like 343 Industries, Obsidian, Compulsion Games, The Coalition, Mojang, Ninja Theory, Playground Games, inXile Entertainment, Turn 10 Studios, Undead Labs, and the newly built The Initiative.

Luckily for us, we already know some of the titles these studios have announced so it's not hard to assume that some of the 14 games are returning titles. For instance, we expect to see more of Halo Infinite and Gears 5 at the show.

Both Halo Infinite and Gears 5 were announced Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference, and since then we've heard next to nothing about either games. With so little information about the next Halo and Gears of War title, there's sure to be some at this year's Microsoft E3 press conference.

Likewise, Forza is an annual series on the Xbox that trades off between Playground's Forza Horizon series and Turn 10's Forza Motorsport series. We got the new Forza Horizon 4 last year which was set in the UK. So it'll be time for a new Forza Motorsport game. The Motorsport series is the more serious racing sim from Turn 10, and there's a good chance a possible Forza Motorsport 8 will deliver hardcore racing sim action for fans.

Rare is also busy working on Sea of Thieves and doesn't appear to be slowing down on new content for its live-service pirate game. That leaves potential new announcements from some of Microsoft's newer studio purchases, which would be very exciting as we've not heard from them since Microsoft purchased them.

The Initiative is Microsoft's new studio built for new triple-A games, and the studio has been hiring ex-developers from companies like Naughty Dog, Rockstar, and Crystal Dynamics. A new triple-A series on the eve of a new console generation could be a strong play.

However, Xbox Game Studios also publishes games as well so there's a chance there will be some indie that come out of the Xbox label. Both Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Cuphead DLC were present at last year's E3 press conference, so there could be some indies joining Xbox's 14 game lineup.

Either way, we'll find out more when Microsoft holds its official press conference at E3. Check out our Xbox E3 2019 guide for more info, including schedules, start times, and more.
