When it comes to rumor, it is harder to find credible leaks from sources with a good track record. Microsoft is perhaps the only company that has received a lot of rumored leaks so far and they also had the most credible leakers. One such leaker, who initially revealed plans of Microsoft before E3 2016. While some of it didn’t end up being true, due to the nature of his leak, most of his leak was spot on and has proven to be correct.
The leaker who goes by the name Klobrille on resetERA forums has now shared a new list of rumors that point towards a new Fable game, Forza Horizon 4 set in Japan and Perfect Dark coming back as a third person shooter. The nature of his leak is also worth mentioning here because according to him, he has no source but access to Xbox API which lets him search to find references in code for these leaks.
Considering his track record, they can turn out to be true, but still take all of these leaks with a grain of salt just to be safe.
- A new fable game is in development from a UK based studio.
- Perfect Dark is being resurrected, development being helped by The Coalition of Gears of War.
- Crackdown 3 will have 4-player co-op campaign.
- Forza Horizon 4 is in development and set in Japan.
- Halo could be getting a multiplayer mode allowing a high player count.
- Age of Empires 4 is potentially getting a release date soon.
- A new ‘mech’ game could be in development for the Xbox One.
The rumors sound good so far, especially about the Fable IP being resurrected. Forza Horizon 3 set new benchmark for quality racing games so it should be interesting to see Forza Horizon 4. As for the rest of the rumors, we will have to wait and see how it all plays out leading up to E3 2018.
