Late to the railroad, but Microsoft’s hype train has left the parking lot and is now chew-chew-ing it’s way to Redmond, Washington at top speeds. There, and at E3, the next Xbox will be revealed with tons of exclusives, according to Microsoft’s IEB chief of staff Aaron Greenberg on the latest episode of Major Nelson’s podcast.
We’re really going to tell one story across two events. So we’re going to start on the 21st and really that’s about revealing the next Xbox platform, really our vision for the future of games, the future of entertainment. We definitely have a lot of surprises planned. I know everyone knows the Infinity Ward team is hard at work on world premiering the next Call of Duty Ghosts so we’re going to see what that looks like for the first time.
People are going to get a great inside look at really the making of the new platform and the team that’s brought it to life. I mean to be honest it’s really about the team, the people here, that’s why we’re inviting people to campus, we’re going to bring them behind the scenes a little bit, we’ve never done this before and so it’s really exiting to be able to do that. But I think it’s a lot of laying the foundation, probably the best way to describe it, and then just a couple of weeks later we go to E3.
E3 is all about the games. At E3, I mean, if you’re a gamer, it’s going to be tonnes of exclusives, world premieres, and obviously even beyond that we have a lot to share between then and this holiday.
Are you ready for the event? We’ll be covering the full thing live.
