Xbox One’s lineup in 2017 will be led by “new experiences with different IP,” instead of a new Halo FPS or Gears of War, according to head of Xbox Phil Spencer.

“XB1 games shipping this year are different for us. not Halo FPS/Gears led, new experiences with different IP, will be fun year,” he said when asked if there will be any new IPs on Xbox this year.

Following the cancellation of Scalebound, Microsoft’s 2017 lineup consists of Crackdown 3, Halo Wars 2, Sea of Thieves, and State of Decay 2, but what other surprises does Microsoft have up its sleeve for 2017?

Spencer’s “new experiences with different IP” comment could be referring to Microsoft’s mysterious Scorpio console, which will presumably be fully unveiled at E3 in June. It would make sense for Microsoft to be holding back a number of first-party games to announce and show running on the more powerful console.
