The brand’s business boss Lori Wright has testified in the ongoing Apple vs. Epic court case, and a redacted internal Microsoft document was entered into evidence.
Xbox expected ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2’ and ‘Metroid Prime 4’ to be released last year.
As reported by GameSpot, plenty of the information is old and outdated – such as using Project Scarlett instead of Xbox Series X – but of note is a slide called ‘Worldwide High-Profile Competitive Console Exclusives’.
On this page, the company listed the two games among ones they believed would be launching in 2019-2020.
The document is dated to August 2020, and Microsoft still thought the Nintendo Switch titles – which are yet to get confirmed release dates – could have dropped last year.
Regarding PlayStation – which MIcrosoft counts as its main rival – they listed the likes of ‘Horizon: Forbidden West’, ‘Gran Turismo 7’ and ‘Deathloop’ as potential releases in 2020 or 2021.
While both ‘Deathloop’ and ‘Horizon: Forbidden West’ are set to launc this year, ‘Gran Turismo 7’ will be available in 2022.
The document also refers to three “high-profile” Xbox games for the firster quarter of 2021, although these were redacted.
