Microsoft: Xbox reveal to ‘lay down the foundation’, ‘tons’ of exclusives to be announced at E3'We're telling one story across two events.'
Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business chief of staff Aaron Greenberg is teasing “tons of exclusives” and “world premieres” for Microsoft’s E3 next-gen Xbox showing.
E3 will be “all about the games,” he promised on the latest Major Nelson podcast, while Tuesday’s May 21 reveal event will ‘lay down the foundation’ for the new console.
“We’re really going to tell one story across two events,” said Greenberg. “So we’re going to start on the 21st and really that’s about revealing the next Xbox platform, really our vision for the future of games, the future of entertainment. We definitely have a lot of surprises planned.
“I know everyone knows the Infinity Ward team is hard at work on world premiering the next Call of Duty: Ghosts, so we’re going to see what that looks like for the first time. People are going to get a great inside look at really the making of the new platform and the team that’s brought it to life.
“I mean, to be honest, it’s really about the team, the people here, that’s why we’re inviting people to campus, we’re going to bring them behind the scenes a little bit. We’ve never done this before and so it’s really exciting to be able to do that. But I think it’s a lot of laying the foundation, probably the best way to describe it, and then just a couple of weeks later we go to E3.”
He continued, “E3 is all about the games. At E3, I mean, if you’re a gamer, it’s going to be tons of exclusives, world premieres, and obviously even beyond that we have a lot to share between then and this holiday.”
E3 runs from June 11 to 13. Microsoft will hold its press conference on June 10.
