While a handful of people watch Apple lay out its developer roadmap, about 380 miles south of that, Microsoft is holding its annual E3 keynote on the future of Xbox.

It's looking to be an exceptionally crazy year. We expect Microsoft to make an announcement about Halo Wars 2 and Dead Rising 4, the latter of which leaked over the weekend. Gears of War 4, which is supposed to be coming out in October, should get an update. We're also expecting an update to the Forza series, which should be Forza Horizons 3 this year. Other games Microsoft that could get a mention: Crackdown 3, ReCore, Ion, Ashen, Below, and Rare's Sea of Thieves, among other prospective titles.

Oh yeah, and there's that slimmer Xbox One that leaked yesterday, to which Microsoft officially responded with the following statement:
