Four upcoming projects separate from the rumored Kojima deal
Three new IPs, one spinoff of an existing IP
The furthest along one (codename: typhoon) is a big online multiplayer game that is not a looter shooter or MMO from a studio that has not been multiplayer centric in the past, "going for something that has never been done before in a multiplayer game". It is not scalebound.

This was a hint for the one that is furthest along (Typhoon reference)

This was also a hint

Reading the title I thought that it's about miles morales and I was curious, only to find out it's some of those so called "insiders". Wake me up when we get a trailer, an announcement or something concrete.

It's just fantastic to see Xbox leaders cementing Gamepass as a must have for current and future gamers. First party to third party is through the roof, it took a while but Phil had the vision and backing years ago and it's all paying off now.

Insiders sure do love to spout a whole lot of nothing. Gotta make sure they can squeeze out of whatever predictions they make when they get called out for being wrong.


if anyone can make vague general guesses about games and they are right 15 percent of the time does that mean i can be an “insider” too?

its like you wont actually say what you know. and post these bread crumbs for twitter followers and youtube views. Just make any vague statement with this👀emoji and bam, look at that. You made it as an insider.

heres a hot take : activision will put out a cod this year 👀

gaming sites: Neogaf user says there will be another cod this year, we know they are legit because they used the “scoop eyes” emoji.

So you call out insiders and then you make a prediction like this? Highly unlikely 🙄

I don't get it. You're leaking stuff under NDA. Why not add more details? They seem to know what these games are about and who makes them so why the secrecy?

They're professional 'hype guys'. Whoever their source is enjoys them keeping conversations flowing and stirring interest. They must realize that if they ever were to steal a developer's thunder by announcing everything they would burn bridges with their source.

It's not Microsoft it's third party exclusives, it's a, big deal.
I know. Every console manufacturer is working with third parties on deal/ exclusives. This article has no information of value other than the obvious.

It was good when anonymous insiders would just fucking leak stuff...... like actually leak stuff.

Enough with this god-awful cryptic bollocks.

Listened to alot of the podcast, felt like a commercial for xbox. Dude on top left was screaming about how excited he was for xbox and gamepass. Colt "Xbox is the market leader" Eastwood is part of the panel. In the same episode Miles claims Microsoft is going to buy kojima productions and that netflix is going to buy sony. I stopped listening after that. With regards to the games mentioned im sure MS has deals.

One thing i found amusing was the panels reaction to the one journalist mentioning that some xbox games are further out than we think. The overreaction and hostility aimed towards the guy for giving people a dose of reality I think is telling.

Im pretty sure its a game of thrones reference or something to do with the company MS just bought for voice recognition, which i believe is called 'Dragon Speak" or something like that. Could be wrong on that last part.

Crazy coincidence that a company with decades of getting caught red handed astroturfing via fake accounts, paying journalists, and feeding info via “anonymous sources” has had what, like 2 dozen “leaks” the last couple of weeks that are all literal hype drivers with 0 substance? Mods need to do us a favor an ban these shill ass leakers untilthey actually leak something.

I mean cmon. Windows Central is getting free publicity via even this site because they got anonymous tips that uhh.. Microsoft has crazy cool stuff coming up? Give a title, a studio, literally anything. Not even a fucking genre.

When a leak benefits the company supposedly having their information leaked via hype more than it benefits the reader since the leak offers 0 valid information it’s no 200 iq puzzle to solve.

Xbox paying for a game of thrones license of exclusivity deal or whatever would be almost too good of an example of them not knowing what gamers want and why they consistently fail.

A) the least season of the show literally killed all the hype the series managed to accumulate in one foul swoop. It’s bad that super fans I know aren’t even rewatching their favorite show. And with the book not coming anytime soon there’s nothing to drive that hype back up.

B) just spend whatever money that would go into this on elder scrolls or avowed. Since they are basically going to launch free on gamepass you can even include the nudity and shit, it’s not like you have to convince parents to buy the game for their kid by treading lightly.

C) by the time this project even gets near launch we are realistically looking at a new Witcher which does anything a got game would do but better. I know cdpr isn’t in good graces right now but I’m pretty sure they aren’t going to fuck up witcher.
