As the chatter of the games industry fades to the pre-E2 sealed-lips silence, the familiar sound of the news barrel being scraped replaces the gossiping. This being the case, enjoy today?s predictable news involving two key Xbox franchises moving across to the Xbox 360.
In an interview with the official Xbox site, Shane Kim, head of Microsoft Game Studios, has revealed that the next Project Gotham and Fable games will appear on the Xbox 360. Can you imagine?
?Without giving away all the surprises we have in store, gamers that love franchises like Halo, Fable, and Project Gotham Racing can safely assume we will continue to invest in them as we move into the next generation,? commented Kim.
However, this does raise the question of what will be released for the current Xbox on the run up to the launch of its successor? In the next few weeks - in Europe at least - we get Forza, Unreal Championship 2 and Doom III, though after April, the situation isn?t looking particularly healthy. Retail and publishing sources have indicated to SPOnG
and several other publications that numbers of the current machine will be short as Microsoft?s focus shifts to launching its new baby, about which the most telling details can be found here.
As ever, we?ll keep a look out and update you accordingly.
