Crackdown and Scalebound Won't Be At E3 Next Week Either
Posted by Anthony Bacchus
Will be "front and center" at Gamescom
Coming off the heels of its big and unexpected partnership with Oculus, Microsoft has broke the news that both Crackdown and Scalebound will not be present at E3 this year. Instead, the first-party Xbox One exclusives will now join Quantum Break at Gamescom in August so they can get the necessary attention they deserve.
Over at Xbox Wire today, Head of Xbox Phil Spencer explained the reasoning behind the no-shows:
"Having a jam-packed lineup of games to show at E3 means that there simply isn't enough time to give each of our upcoming titles its well-deserved time in the spotlight. We've decided to save some of our most eagerly-awaited future titles for gamescom in August. Rest assured that titles like Crackdown, Quantum Break and Scalebound will be front and center at gamescom along with new game reveals for both Xbox One and Windows 10."
It has been awhile since we last saw the initial reveals for Crackdown and Scalebound at E3 in 2013 and 2014 respectively. While it is a shame that we won't be seeing them next week, it is reassuring knowing that we won't need to wait much longer before we see them again.
