Microsoft has previously announced that this years E3 event which starts on the 16th June will be all about first party games coming to the Xbox One. However, it seems that Microsoft may have something else up its sleeve, perhaps relating to the console itself. Eager to make up for the rocky start to the Xbox One life cycle, Microsoft will be eager to impress gamers and try to convince them that theirs is the console to own after Sony got such a strong start globally.
A Program Manager for Xbox commented on the relatively small size of the June Xbox update
If this month feels a little light, don’t worry – we are working on some planned *BIG* E3 announcements. In the meantime, we will be continuing to preview the items previously released to continue to get feedback and work towards making them available to everyone, so keep that feedback coming!
The June update for Xbox One was focused around improvements to the Windows 10 app and preparing for streaming games across the network with Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb asking those with Windows 10 Insider accounts and an Xbox One to run network diagnostics through the Xbox app on the new Windows OS.
The news could perhaps revolve around the addition of Windows 10 as the OS for the Xbox One platform and news on how that will look and work but we won’t know for sure until June.
Games we expect to see on show at E3 for Xbox One include; Forza Motorsport 6, Halo 5: Guardians, Quantum Break, Gears of War, Fable Legends along with the timed exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider.
