[Original story] Microsoft will allegedly have the Xbox Cyberpunk 2077, Anthem, Battlefield V,  new Splinter Cell, Borderlands 3, and new Madden marketing rights.

At least, that’s what website Rectify Gaming reports based on sources close to Microsoft. In addition to the titles mentioned above, the company is also said to have the marketing rights to the new Madden, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and The Division 2, although the latter has yet to be confirmed.

Rectify Gaming has proven to be right about leaked info in the past, including the name of Microsoft’s Xbox One X console. The website has been suffering from server issues ever since the article was put up, but the contents also made their way to the ResetEra forums.

The marketing rights for EA's upcoming Anthem will reportedly belong to Microsoft

Having the marketing rights to a game doesn’t mean that that the title is exclusive to Xbox, but merely allows Microsoft to exclusively advertise these games. In addition, trailers for these games will contain references to Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles and Microsoft will likely show off these games running on the Xbox One X during upcoming events.

While most the of titles mentioned above have been officially confirmed for a release in the near future,  a new Splinter Cell installment hasn’t been officially announced. Rumors about a new game in the series have been surfacing on several occasions however, but Ubisoft has yet to officially confirm the existence of the game.

As always, we will keep you updated as soon we learn more about this matter.
