The future roster of FPS franchises at Xbox is going to be crazy

Assuming Activision goes well + Rare + Bethesda, the roster of established FPS franchises is really shaping up to be fantastic. As a big fan of FPS and all of these games (just Overwatch I’ve never played), it’s pretty crazy.

  • Quake
  • Perfect Dark
  • Halo
  • Call of Duty (Modern Warfare + Black Ops + Sledgehammer) + Warzone
  • Overwatch
  • DOOM
  • Wolfenstein

Will also mean that all these studios will certainly be able to share tools, feedback, anti-cheat systems and expertise when developping first-person shooters going forward. Even Arkane as they’re doing first-person games (even if it’s immersive sims first and foremost). Or even BGS with Fallout 5 (though Fallout 4 already had greatly improved systems compared to Fallout 3).

Activision has some very strong FPS studios (Infinity Ward, Treyarch, Sledgehammer, etc…) with a lot of developers and some impressive tools. Really exciting.

It is funny to think about what complete dominance Xbox now has in the FPS and WRPG genres. I wonder if PlayStation might ever try again to gain a foothold in the FPS arena.


It is almost absurd how dominant Microsoft is going to be in the FPS department.

Microsoft can honestly mess around and create a massive esport event with halo, cod, over watch, hearthstone, hots, etc.

You forgot to directly mention Gears…

It’s too bad they are all going to be on ten year release cycles so they don’t overlap

My dream is for all these to offer both SP and MP play. I want an Overwatch SP campaign game, and a good Wolfenstein / DOOM/Quake arena PvP component. FPS/arena shooters are about the only genre I enjoy playing both SP and MP.

Goldeneye (its coming and im counting it)

Perfect Dark




They have basically every iconic/revolutionary FPS from every era from the last 30 years, that is absolutely nuts

They are almost if not just as dominant in the WRPG field as well
