Xbox Game Studios has a number of various projects in the works right now, including a new IP that has yet to be announced. Xbox’s Ben Decker told GamesRadar (via VGC) that this game will “blow your mind” when it’s finally announced.
Of course, he didn’t share or tease anything beyond that, so one can only guess how far brains will blast into outer-space upon this new game’s reveal. One possibility is that the new IP is from Hitman developer IO Interactive which is said to be an Xbox-exclusive dragon fantasy title.
Another possibility is the rumored new IP currently in the works over at The Coalition. Microsoft operates 23 studios across Xbox and Bethesda, so it’s entirely possible that Decker could be referring to any number of studios.
“We have 23 studios across Xbox and Bethesda, working on Halo, Forza, Fallout, and new IP that we haven’t even talked about yet that’s gonna blow your mind,” Decker said. “We can deliver all of that into Game Pass on day one.”
This new IP may be announced when Xbox and Bethesda showcase their goods this summer, where more details about all sorts of games will likely be revealed. Microsoft hasn’t given any specific details about the summer showcase, so it’s unknown if it will be part of the E3 2021 lineup.
