Three of Microsoft’s big, upcoming exclusive games for the Xbox One – Crackdown, Quantum Break, and Scalebound – will not be shown at this year’s E3.

Instead, Microsoft is choosing to remain tight lipped on the franchises until Gamescom in August. Head of Xbox Phil Spencer explained, “Having a jam-packed lineup of games to show at E3 means that there simply isn’t enough time to give each of our upcoming titles its well-deserved time in the spotlight. We’ve decided to save some of our most eagerly-awaited future titles for Gamescom in August.”

Nevertheless, don’t be too concerned. Microsoft still has plenty of unique IP’s up its sleeve that we can expect to be shown at E3 such as Rise of the Tomb Raider (a timed exclusive, albeit), Halo 5 Guardians, and Forza Motorspot 6, so rest assured some of the biggest heavy-hitters will be making an appearance at E3. Microsoft’s E3 2015 press conference will go live on Monday the 15th June. You can watch that and all of the other E3 press conferences right here on Gamespresso, by navigating over to this page.
