Among the many projects that Xbox Game Studios is currently working on are new IPs that haven’t been announced yet. Xbox Bendecker told GamesRadar (via VGC) that the new game “blows your mind” when it’s announced.
He didn’t share or bully anything more about the game, so we can only guess and guess what it is. One possibility could be the new IP of Hitman developer IO Interactive, which is said to be a dragon fantasy game dedicated to the Xbox.
Another possibility is that it’s a new IP rumored to be in the work of Gears Studio The Coalition. Microsoft operates 23 studios across Xbox and Bethesda, so the new IP that Decker is talking about could be from another studio.
“It’s going to be daunting as we have 23 studios on Xbox and Bethesda working on Halo, Forza, Fallout, and new IPs we haven’t talked about yet,” said Decker. “All of this can be delivered to the Game Pass on the first day.”
As for when this new IP will be announced, Xbox and Bethesda will be hosting a showcase this summer, which could reveal details about this game and potentially other games. Microsoft hasn’t released details of the summer showcase yet, so it’s not yet clear if it will be part of E3 2021 (June 12-15) or somewhere else in the summer.
