German games magazine M! Games is also teasing something 360 related. On the last page of the March issue it says: "Xbox 360 on fire: Die vier großen Exklusiv-Marken kommen zurück"

Roughly translated it means "Xbox 360 on fire: The four biggest exclusive franchises return"

Ugh, what four? I can only think of MechAssault and Halo. Would you keep an eye on that mag? I'd love to know what games they're talking about.

Those are the (only) four franchises they list as their big core game IPs in their job postings, so they would fit.

That said, Gears is the one that confuses me the most, since the DLC for Gears 3 is done and I thought the Kinect game was dead.

Maybe People Can Fly really is making a Gears of War game?

The other three fit very well without much questioning.

Project Gotham Racing? Though I wouldn't class it as one of the "four biggest exclusive franchises". Clearly there's a bit of hyperbole in the quote.

m! is pretty critical in terms of kinect. so if they talk about big ip's, they sure as hell dont mean kinect stuff.

i expect halo 4, a new pgr, a new forza (forza world) and either fable or gears.

Their first party offerings really are lackluster.

Not that it matters since Call of Duty is the only thing that really counts now.

Almost definitely Halo and Fable. Don't expect a Gears so quickly, would be surprised if they bothered with a kinect version (maybe 720 with kinect 2.0?). A Forza or PGR but not both... and then I'm not sure. Hoping for a Rare sequel (Kameo 2, PZ2 or Viva Pinata 3 would all be nice)

Might be time for another Crackdown announcement. I like to think that Ruffian weren't just hashing together Crackdown 2 but actually building something much better behind the scenes.

Gears. Technically not first party, but MS would never let it slip.

For a franchise to "return", wouldn't that mean we haven't seen anything from it in a while?

I agree that Fable, Gears, Forza, and Halo are their biggest IPs but I'm not sure they fit the title. Heck, Gears isn't even really one of their IPs.

Well Halo 4 is already announced so that one for sure I think.

But Forza 4 and Gears 3 just got released so I don't think it's new announcements for these two IPs and it's just two soon for any sort of sequels.

I guess Fable , Perfect Dark, PGR are the other three.

I'd be more interested in a third Crackdown to be perfectly honest. Did we ever find out who Ruffian's publishing deal was with?

That's actually a new IP in the same style. It's an f2p PC game.
