With the claim that 2017 will see more first-party titles than in 2016 – which saw some amazing exclusives including Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3Xbox One owners no doubt have plenty to look forward to.

Although Spencer doesn’t specify which games or franchises we can expect to see new entries from, no doubt gamers will already be speculating which ones we’d love to see reinvigorated. Personally, I’d love to finally get a new Battletoads.

Microsoft already has a bunch of first-party titles slated for 2017 releases. Crackdown 3, although silent for a long spell, is still set to launch this year, Cuphead remains a console-exclusive and Halo Wars 2 is right around the corner. We also have Rare working very hard on the exciting Sea of Thieves.

With the launch of Xbox Project Scorpio coming at the tail end of 2017, hopefully there are plenty of titles built with the specific purpose of showing off that console’s immense hardware.
