Cuphead and Below still to come

As part of yesterday's update, which confirmed "every title in [Microsoft's] exclusive 2015 holiday games line-up -- Halo 5: GuardiansRise of the Tomb RaiderForza Motorsport 6 and Gears of War: Ultimate Edition -- sold over 1 million units," Microsoft has summarised what's coming next in 2016.

In an interview with Gamertag Radio, marketing executive Aaron Greenberg confirmed that development remains on track for some of its most anticipated ID games, too.

"Those are three huge ID titles," Greenberg said. "If you played Limbo you're definitely excited to see what Playdead's bringing next with Inside. We know the guys at Capy make incredible games and Below has been a title that's been anticipated for a very long time. And then Cuphead is a console-exclusive for us. Lifetime exclusive. And so that's a big title that we've bet on."

"None of these titles do we want to rush but [Cuphead] is one of the big exclusives we're looking forward to for 2016 and the game is fantastic, and we'll want to make sure it's released when it's ready. But it's absolutely planning to come out in 2016 and as we get closer to timing we'll share more details."

To finish up, here's a snapshot of the "exclusive titles" Microsoft has announced ("so far"). It also promises "even more updates to all versions of Minecraft in 2016":

  • Gears of War 4 (Xbox One) – Multiplayer Beta in Spring 2016/Launch in Fall 2016
