Microsoft teases new exclusive to be revealed at Gamescom

On Major Nelson’s podcast, Microsoft Studios corporate vice president Phil Spencer discussed Microsoft’s presentation at Gamescom and what fans can expect from Microsoft’s Showcase event at the event in Cologne.

“We’re gonna have a really short stage presentation with some news, talking about some unique exclusive coming to the platform,” Spencer said. “We’re going to talk about Europe’s biggest franchise and maybe some interesting things. We have some stuff, but most of the time will be spent with the press getting time with the developers, with their games. So you should think about this as a room with a lot of hands-on. We think that these platforms are about the games, and we want to give the press time with the games.”

So, what are you ideas on an exclusive to be announced at Gamescom? From Spencer’s description it appears to be a European franchise, which makes me think The Witcher, but that was already announced at E3. Give it your best guess and let us know in the comments.

    “Europe’s biggest franchise” = Champions League or Premier League football?

    Would be my guess.

      I wondered if it wasn’t somehow related to soccer. I have very little knowledge of sports games, so it makes sense.

        Yeah I think he’s talking about a variety of things. I expect we’ll see a couple more exclusive games there and it sounds like there will be other things announced/discussed but the phrase “europe’s biggest franchise” to me indicates some announcement about a deal like the one with the NFL. They need some similar deal over here after talking up the tv features.

    Big European franchise? Probably FIFA…

    It’s probably an Xbox Two, so you can connect it to your Xbox One. lol But I am hoping for it to be a FPS!
