Rumours that the next generation consoles are coming soon have been intensifying for months now, with many believing that the Xbox 720 will be announced sometime next year. But that also means that speculation is ripe regarding which developers are already working on next-gen games, and which of those games will be strutting their stuff in the consoles launch game line-up.
Well, according to the latest issue of the new-look Xbox World magazine, issue 109, two of the Xbox 720’s launch titles will be Gears of War 4 and Forza 5.
This surprising claim comes in the magazines “The Insider” column, which focuses on “Tales from behind the gaming lines”.
The piece of information in question reads: “what are id doing now Rage is about to ship? Doom 4, that’s what. Don’t expect it for this gen, though. It’ll be Xbox Next for sure. And what of Xbox Next? Well, the Insider hears suits at Microsoft are already lining up the launch games – and they include two monsters: Gears of War 4 and Forza 5”
Obviously, unless the Insider has some very accurate sources, this us currently just rumour, but should it prove true it would be a significant feather in Microsoft’s cap to be able to launch their next generation console with two of its biggest exclusives leading the charge.
What do you think? Are Gears of War 4 and Forza 5 really going to be part of the Xbox 720’s launch line-up?
