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.
 
Split bump.

Halo 4?
Gears of War (Kinect)?
Fable: The Journey?
Forza World?

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.

Halo - Halo with Halo as the protagonist
Hola - Halo with a Mexican immigrant as the new protagonist
Aloh - Halo with a French chef as the new protagonist
Hoal - Halo with an English dyslectic as the new protagonist

Halo, Gears, Fable and Forza

I'm surprised that no one mention Rare's franchisees. I guess everyone think they are dead for good.

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)

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.

One of them is definately MechAssault. The game was teased a couple weeks ago by Day One Studios.
