Over the past few years, Microsoft has made tremendous strides in improving its first-party lineup. The company has acquired numerous renowned studios like Playground Games and Obsidian Entertainment. With E3 2019 around the corner, it seems like what these teams have been working on will be showcased during the event. Today, Phil Spencer, the Executive Vice President of Gaming at Microsoft, said that 14 Xbox Game Studios titles will be showcased.
Spencer added that this is the most first-party games Microsoft has ever showcased during an E3 event. Hopefully, these titles will be of the utmost quality because the company has to put out games on the level of God of War, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Spider-Man to compete with Nintendo and Sony.
