Microsoft to Present 14 Xbox First Party Games at the E3 2019 Briefing, More Than Ever Before
E3 2019 is almost upon us, as evidenced by the plethora of game announcements that have been shared by publishers and developers this week.
Head of Xbox division Phil Spencer sent out a tweet yesterday that hyped Xbox fans even further, noting how this year’s briefing (scheduled to air on Sunday, June 9th, at 1 PM Pacific Time; Mixer.com and Xbox One viewers will be able to watch it in 4K resolution) will feature fourteen first party games in development at Xbox Game Studios, more than ever before.
Just finishing our final E3 rehearsal here with the team in Redmond. Feel really good about the briefing. Lots to show. We have 14 Xbox Game Studios games in the show this year, more first party games than we’ve ever had in the show. Fun times. #XboxE3
Microsoft made a huge investment recently in bolstering their roster of internal studios after Xbox gamers complained for years about the lack of exclusive titles, especially when compared to Sony’s excellent output (in both quantity and quality) of PlayStation 4 exclusives.
A few months ago, they even rebranded their team of first party developers. Previously known as Microsoft Game Studios for a very long time, the ensemble is now called Xbox Game Studios and it includes 343 Industries, The Coalition, Compulsion Games, The Initiative, inXile Entertainment, Minecraft, Ninja Theory, Obsidian Entertainment, Playground Games, Rare, Turn 10 Studios, Undead Labs and the Microsoft Global Publishing group.
