A few days ago, Remedy confirmed that their long-in-development Xbox One game for Microsoft, Quantum Break, won't be shown next week at E3 2015 in favor of an appearance at Gamescom in early August. Now Xbox head Phil Spencer has confirmed that two upcoming Xbox One exclusives, Crackdown and Scalebound, will join Quantum Break in bypassing E3 and will instead be showcased at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.
In a letter posted on the Xbox Wire site that goes over Microsoft's recent announcements, and teases its E3 2015 reveals, Spencer stated:
"E3 is just the beginning. Over the next few weeks and months, we'll be sharing many more of our plans for 2015 and beyond. 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. Rest assured that titles like Crackdown, Quantum Break and Scalebound will be front and center at gamescom along with new game reveals for both Xbox One and Windows 10.
Crackdown is a reboot of the open world sci-fi action franchise that launched with the Xbox 360 with two games. Microsoft is developing cloud-based technologies that will allow the Xbox One version of Crackdown to have highly destructible buildings and environments. Scalebound is a fantasy action-adventure game from developer Platinum Games that promises lots of combat with monsters, including dragons. Microsoft revealed both games at E3 2014 but has not shown them since then.
Windows Central will be at E3 2015 next week in Los Angeles and will also travel to Cologne to attend Gamescom in early August to bring you the latest from the floor.
