An executive from Microsoft is feeling very confident regarding the upcoming games that are expected to arrive for the company's Xbox One console in 2016.
He even noted that Xbox One gamers will probably see the best games lineup for the console next year.
Yusuf Mehdi, the marketing executive of Microsoft, made the statements during the recent Credit Suisse Technology Conference held in Arizona, Video Gamer reported. While discussing specific details regarding the operations of Microsoft, the executive gave an update regarding the company's gaming endeavors.
According to Mehdi, those who are considering getting into gaming should probably get an Xbox One console now due to the arrival of certain top titles next year.
"On gaming, gaming has been a pretty big success case," he said during the event. "Gaming you think about in two pieces. There's traditional Xbox console business, where we compete with Sony. And there we've had probably the best year we've ever had for Xbox."
"And it's on the back of the greatest games lineup in Xbox history," Mehdi added. "So if you like to game, this is the year to get an Xbox. We have 'Halo 5' launching. We have 'Minecraft' on Xbox. We have 'Gears of War,' 'Tomb Raider.' The best lineup; next year will also be the best lineup."
As noted by Gamespot, some of the top games that Xbox One owners can look forward to seeing next year include "Quantum Break," "Killer Instinct Season 3," "Sea of Thieves," "Inside," "Scalebound," "Below" and "Gears of War 4."
Some of this will be released solely for the Xbox One console while others will be on a timed-exclusive agreement, which means they'll eventually debut on other platforms such as PlayStation after their official launch.
Of course, Microsoft's biggest competitor in the gaming industry, Sony, will not go down without a fight. Like the Redmond-based tech giant, Sony is also preparing to for the roll out of various titles that will exclusively available for the PlayStation 4 console.
Some of these include "The Last Guardian," "Street Fighter V," "No Man's Sky," "Horizon Zero Dawn," "Ratchet & Clank" and "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End."
But aside from these, 2016 will also serve as the release period for different multi-platform titles such as "Tom Clancy's The Division," "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided," "Mass Effect Andromeda," "Final Fantasy XV" and the new "Hitman" and "Battlefield" games.
Given the upcoming lineup for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, it seems gamers will have a good year once 2016 rolls in.
