Head of Xbox Phil Spencer took to Twitter last night in order to promote Microsoft’s E3 2018 briefing.

15 games are going to be shown for the first time ever tomorrow during the Xbox E3 conference but the question remains, what will they be?
Polygon has reported that Gears of War could be heavily featured during this conference. According to this rumor, not only could Gears of War be featured but there may actually be three new titles shown. The first rumored title is the next direct sequel in the franchise, Gears of War 5. Next, a Gears of War strategy game (think Halo Wars).
Finally, Microsoft is supposedly getting into the highly coveted battle royale market with a new Gears of War Battle Royale standalone title.
Halo 6 and Forza Horizon 4 are both rumored to be announced at the conference as well.
Although Spencer said that there will be 15 total world premieres at the Microsoft briefing, not all of them have to be Xbox exclusives. The Xbox platform has been known in the past for premiering many third-party games. Look at last year’s E3 for Xbox. They premiered games like Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Metro Exodus, and Dragon Ball Fighter Z.
With yet another unfortunate delay for Crackdown 3 and a lack of exclusives to present going into the expo, Microsoft has to show its audience something to get excited about other than new hardware.
Microsoft’s E3 2018 briefing will take place today at 4:00 PM EST. You can see the full list of every conference along with every confirmed game to shown here.
