Red Dead Redemption 2 reportedly set to show off 4K on new Xbox One

Project Scorpio event ft. Forza, Crackdown, et al

At E3 2016 Microsoft showed off a new, slimmer Xbox One called the Xbox One S (which is already out) and announced “Project Scorpio,” a souped up Xbox One meant to do 4K resolution bullshit for peoples whose TVs also do 4K bullshit. And supposedly better than the PS4 Pro does. It might also be more expensive! Who knows?

Well, we might soon. Windows Central reports Microsoft will unveil Forza Motorsport 7 “in the next few weeks” as the headliner of a 4K showcase for Project Scorpio. A bunch of glossy cars; I can just picture it on an endless loop on a wall of Costco TVs.

According to the report Forza 7, Crackdown 3, and State of Decay 2 will all be on display — all first-party Microsoft games will run at native 4K on the Scorpio — along with Call of Duty (presumably the newest one), FIFA, Madden, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Red Dead Redemption 2. Maybe we’ll get a little more than we did in the teaser?
