Phil Spencer responded by mentioning that “Quantum Break,” “Sunset Overdrive,” and other unannounced games should be able to provide the same “magic” found in the first “Gears of War” and “Halo” titles. The executive went on to reassure another fan that creating new franchises is still “critical” for Microsoft Studios. You can find his comments below:

New IP is critical. Launch of XB1 to now and I like the new IP we invested in: Ryse, Crimson Dragon, Max, Loco with SO, QB coming

The corporate vice president was also asked if a new exclusive franchise could be coming that will match the “Fable,” “Forza,” “Gears of War” and “Halo” flagship titles. He replied by hinting that several games are currently in development at the “same scale and potential.” You can find some screenshots of “Quantum Break” with the slideshow to the left of this article and his response below:

I always hope everything we ship turns big of course. We have games in development with same scale and potential as those.

Microsoft Studios recently acquired the rights to the “Gears of War” franchise from Epic Games. As a result, the future titles of the third-person shooting series will be now being developed by the Black Tusk, a first-party studio previously rumored to be working on a new intellectual property.

The aforesaid “Quantum Break” and “Sunset Overdrive” do not have official release dates. You can order the products from Amazon in the following links: “Quantum Break,” “Sunset Overdrive” and Xbox One.
