As we previously reported, Turn 10 Studios' racing series will also be among the console's early titles, with the Xbox-exclusive Forza Motorsport 5 available at launch. Alan Wake developer Remedy Entertainment was also on hand to unveil Quantum Break, a title that blends the blends live-action television with gaming, though the announcement was lacking in solid details. And as expected, Activision announced that the upcoming Call of Duty: Ghosts will be coming to the console, and the publisher also revealed a new trailer for the Infinity Ward-developed game. While the title is coming to several platforms, the Xbox One version will receive some exclusive content in the form of downloadable content. More Xbox One titles will be announced at E3 next month.
Microsoft says that the console will see more than 15 exclusive games in its first year, including eight brand new franchises, and company VP Phil Harrison told Eurogamer that Microsoft is investing a staggering $1 billion to make it happen.
