Doubt it, “second title” and we’re at five with halo...unless we’re getting ODST 2 then I’m game.
Oh, I didn't catch that "second" part.

This should be easy to figure out, but going down the list of XBox One games on gamerankings, nothing really pops out.

Sunset Overdrive perhaps? I don't see Microsoft confident enough in that IP to invest in a sequel.

Sunset isnt owned by MS. Doubtful.

What new ip came out four years ago??? Was it sunset? If so, I’d totally be ok with a sequel next gen.
It's not like there have been a ton of new XBox IP this gen. Maybe it's a smaller scale title?

Screamride or D4?

I can't think of any beloved Xbox exclusives that released this gen that don't have a known sequel other than Cuphead. Sunset Overdrive if you want to push it.

Recore=beloved? No.

Killer Instinct, because that was a reboot.

Not really sure how you make a bold sequel to that but ok I will give you that one.

Also considered that he could be talking about something that got rereleased in some way. Like a BC game or something from Rare Replay like Conker.

That would be good news. I think Quantum Break and Recore are candidates but of all Microsoft’s exclusives this gen, outside of Sunset Overdrive, KI had the most passionate fan base.

I still want to learn how to play fighters damnit! Hmm. Maybe tonight.

Sounds like a possible Heavenly Sword/Enslaved type game.

Ok, I don’t want to be that guy, but, Ninja Theory seems to be the perfect fit for an Azurik reboot...just saying :)

The title of their next game should be Hellblade 2

I hope Bleeding Edge is about a traveling warrior who has a sought after legendary sword that drives its wielder mad.

Gears fans want more good Gears games. You are not required to open your wallet.
Michaelangelo never would have gotten to the Sistine Chapel if he was constantly commissioned to paint Gears of War paintings over and over and over again. The artist needs a blank canvas.

The Gears of War story has been told. It's time to move on.

The same could be said of any franchise, yet GOW just got Game Of The Year.

Better hang that one up too, eh. Same for UC, Halo, Zelda, Mario...yup.

Stopping any of those franchises would have been fantastic business moves. I mean really, no one wants to fight Ganon ever again, and the massive sales numbers and high review scores of all those games are completely pointless.
