Report: First Xbox One System Update Coming In March, Quantum Break Coming In Holiday 2014 And More

A NeoGAF forum user yesterday leaked lots of information about Microsoft’s plans for Xbox One in 2014. He revealed about the new SKUs of Xbox One coming later this year, Xbox One launch expansion to new countries schedule and some information about games coming to Xbox One. Find the information about game titles and DLCs below.

  • Forza Horizon: “Fall 2014, probably September. Super sexy weather system and… lots of co-op/social stuff. 1080P and open-world, so you can road trip with your bros.”
  • Halo Anniversary 2 will be 1080p, iffy on the 60fps, maybe not.
  • Quantum Break is Holiday 2014
  • Multiplayer confirmed for HA2, same devs as Halo Anniversary.
  • Sunset Overdrive is Fall 2014
  • Black Tusk cancelled project was called “Shangheist.” May have involved stealing stuff from the Chinese (though I think that may have been a reference to the name and maybe not the gameplay? Not sure…)
  • Fable Legends is Summer 2015
  • Halo 2 Anniversary includes beta for Halo 5
  • Gears of War will probably need a 2.5 year dev time.
  • First Titanfall DLC is 45 days from release, then another one 120 days from release.
  • No Crackdown 3 news this year most likely, since it’s a 2016 title.

    So….where’s the info on the system update? The only things I saw referenced had to do with games–which has no value to those of us who do NOT use the Xbox One for gaming. I’m much more interested in the system capabilities, particularly where voice, gesture, other Windows 8 apps, etc., are concerned.

    Wait, WHAT? You do realize it’s a gaming system, right?

    Totally agree with Robert. There’s nothing wrong with the gaming side of it, release of new games is par for the course and not news. What would be news is MS acknowledging issues with the video playback on a system they have the audacity to call the “One” on account of its all-in-one media capabilities. Here’s a link to one thread of thousands, none of which have any input from Microsoft: http://forums.xbox.com/xbox_forums/xbox_support/xbox_one_support/f/4274/t/1630514.aspx?PageIndex=3 The fact that I have to circumvent this brand new all-in-one system to watch a bit of Netflix in reasonable quality is ridiculous. Don’t even get me started on the inability to route UK TV signals through it either…….
