Xbox plan to release at least three to four first-party games this year according to the latest rumours. These games are Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Starfield and Age of Empires VI.
E3 2021 is less than two months away, and just like every year during this period, we got rumours and speculation about major showcases by Sony, Microsoft, Ubisoft, EA, Bandai Namco and other big publishers.
The speculation regarding Xbox's slate of games for E3 and 2021 is particularly interesting. Reliable sources claim that at least three to four games will be Xbox's lead showcases on this year's E3 but more importantly, these are also expected to launch this year.
Windows Central's Jez Corden has recently teased this lineup with some subtle tweets that got Xbox fans talking about the potential 2021 lineup.
As you can see from the tweet, Corden teases Forza Horizon 5 with a car and Mexico flag emojis (FH 5 rumoured to be set in Mexico), Halo Infinite with a smiling face with halo and infinity emojis, Starfield with star and tractor emojis and two additional projects, which he separated by dots, meaning these are further down the road.
So that's Forza Horizon 5, Starfield, Halo Infinite perhaps launching in 2021. Such a slate of games would certainly be great for the green team, who are yet to drop a first-party game for Xbox Series X.
While Sony have already released a couple of big games for PlayStation 5, Xbox certainly don't want to waste time and let Sony take the early win in the next-gen race. With the mentioned trio of releases, they certainly are a formidable opponent.
