After the success of Starfield, Microsoft has experienced a surge not only in its console sales but also in its Game Pass subscriptions. The company would surely want to carry this momentum further, and in the run-up to the release of Brooklin next year, the Redmond-based tech giant is reportedly working on two new, unannounced IPs at the moment.
A recent find by @bogorad222 on X shows that Kate Carson, the senior business development manager for Microsoft, had listed on LinkedIn that she recently worked on “two unannounced IPs” from Microsoft.
Worked on Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, Halo Infinite, Grounded, As Dusk Falls, CrossfireX, Nobody Saves the World, five unannounced Xbox Game Studios 1PP titles, one unannounced ID@Xbox and Game Pass title, and two unannounced licensed IP titles”Kate Carson – Senior Business Development Manager at Microsoft
To be fair, one of these IPs could actually be from Bethesda, which we covered last month. If so, it is said that it may be under the Disney banner. However, at the moment, not much else is known about the game or its release. We also can’t confirm whether it’s from Microsoft itself or a third-party acquired studio.
While Xbox is still far behind Sony in recent years, Microsoft appears to be working diligently on drafting long-term strategies, particularly with the acquisition of Microsoft ABK to take the lead in the console race. Not only that, but it also seems to be expanding beyond that, emphasizing the significance of Game Pass and the role it may play in the future.
With all of this in mind, exclusives have played a significant role in Sony’s success with PlayStation. Microsoft appears to be investing quite a bit in this aspect, and while they may lag behind in the numbers game, the company has produced some great titles in the recent past.
This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
