In a surprising story (sarcasm), Microsoft senior director of PC and mobile gaming Kevin Unangst has said that the Xbox 360 manufacturer will continue to create games in the Halo, Fable, and Forza franchises.
“We’re still going to double down, you’re going to see us do more with Forza, with Halo, with Fable; all the franchises,” Unangst told Gamasutra during a recent interview. “But we’re also, of course, looking to bring in new IP, looking to bring new things.
“As a first-party studio, our job is also to experiment, also to lead the way, set the example… things like the integration between Kinect and the phone.”
When quizzed on the company’s somewhat lackluster lineup for 2011, and whether or not they’re holding back surprises for E3, Unangst responded:
“This is not the sum total. Although I love what we’re doing… there’s games that we’ve already even talked about coming this year. Games like Forza 4, games like Kinect Star Wars that we’re not yet talking about. That, and some other surprises I’m sure you’ll see and hear from us at E3 about.”
E3 2011 takes placed from June 7-10 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
