In an interview with Fortune, Phil Spencer confirmed that already-announced titles such as "Halo 5" and "Quantum Break" will be a part of the software lineup shown at E3 2014. A few other rumored first-party titles like "Crackdown 3," "Forza Horizon 2," "Halo 2 Anniversary" in addition to a new game from the developers of "State of Decay" could be revealed as well. Finally, some third-party games such as "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare" and "Tom Clancy's The Division" may also end up at the media briefing.
"Quantum Break" is expected to come out later this year exclusively for the Xbox One next-generation system. On the other hand, "Halo 5" will most likely end up being a 2015 title although its multiplayer beta could be included with the release of "Halo 2 Anniversary."
