The dust has finally settled on the whirlwind gaming extravaganza that was E3 2016, meaning it’s time for us to look back and reflect on the games that we can now start eagerly awaiting due to their 2016 release dates.
E3 may not have been packed to the brim with block buster titles as it has in previous years. That isn’t to say, however, that there isn’t still plenty to look forward to.
Below is a comprehensive list of the titles we can expect to see on Xbox One in what remains of 2016:
Titanfall 2 – Release Date: October 28
Final Fantasy XV – Release Date: September 30
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare – Release Date: November 4, 2016
South Park: The Fractured But Whole – Release Date: December 6
Steep – Release Date: December TBA
Forza Horizon 3 – Release Date: September 27
Attack on Titan – Release Date: August 30
Watch Dogs 2 – Release Date: November 15
Cuphead – Release Date: TBA 2016
ReCore – Release Date: September 13
Gears of War 4 – Release Date: October 11
Mafia III – Release Date: October 7
Battlefield 1 – Release Date: October 21
I’m sure you’ll agree that release list is nothing to be sniffed at. With the return of Microsoft exclusives such as the huge open worlds of Forza Horizon, and the gritty dark settings of Gears of War it’s a great time to own an Xbox One.
Let’s not disregard those games getting multi-platform releases either, though. Battlefield 1 is shaping up to be something quite special in the FPS genre whilst the controversial Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is still sure to sell well, if only for the promise of a remastered Modern Warfare. As well as these two common place shooters the outsider Titanfall 2 will be doing its best to muscle in on their turf and expand upon it’s already substantial fan base!
The personal wild card in this list for myself has to be the latest offering from Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Ubisoft, South Park: The Fractured But Whole. The first game, South Park: The Stick Of Truth was brilliant and stayed true to the irreverently funny TV shows source material, something that I’m sure was difficult but looks sure to carry on in the next game.
With other titles confirmed at, or just before, E3 such as We Happy Few (not in this list as it’s coming to Game Preview this year meaning it isn’t a full retail release) along with the beautifully remastered Skyrim, it truly is a great time to be a gamer!
Which of these titles are you looking forward to the most? Is your wallet going to take a hammering buying each and every one of these games? Or are there only a select few that have piqued your interest? Let us know in the comments!
