Xbox One’s autumn 2015 lineup is apparently so “crazy” that Microsoft is finding it hard to decide a release schedule that gives each title room to breathe.
Speaking with Major Nelson, Xbox’s head boss Phil Spencer teased that “looking at production schedules and how things are lining up, next fall is just crazy.”
In fact next year is looking so crowded for Microsoft’s new console that the company might step in to move the release dates around. Our wallets would like that very much as well.
I mean, this fall from a 1st-party/3rd-party standpoint is great. Next fall, I don’t… Honestly it’s not hype at all, I honestly don’t know that we can actually ship all the stuff that thinks it’s trying to ship next fall. It just might be too crowded and we might purposely try to move some things out to spread it. You have to [give them some breathing room], you have to do that.
So far we only know of Halo 5: Guardians and Rise of the Tomb Raider that will go on sale during autumn 2015. There’s also Quantum Break and Scalebound, but neither have gotten a specific release date. It’s likely that we’ll see them release later in fall though.
While Spencer is pretty excited of next year’s lineup, readers shouldn’t hold their breaths for a schedule reveal. Microsoft will most probably start unveiling their lineup from March onwards next year.
