We’re nearly to the end of February, but Microsoft thought today was a great day to launch their first major game of 2017, Halo Wars 2. To celebrate, the consolemaker turned the spotlight on their “Epic 2017” in a special episode of This Week on Xbox.
Besides delving deeper into the latest addition to the Halo franchise, Larry “Major Nelson” Hyrb and friends explore Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, and several indie games (including Ron Gilbert’s Thimbleweed Park and Studio MDHR’s Cuphead) set to launch this year through the ID@Xbox program.
Microsoft’s Chris Charla also confirmed that ID@Xbox developers will have a major presence at GDC 2017, and Microsoft’s Showcase will include more than 20 titles. GDC attendees will get a chance to play Fullbright’s Tacoma (and many others) when the conference kicks off in San Francisco next week.
Finally, Phil “Head of Xbox” Spencer had a few more words to say about Microsoft’s “Epic 2017” on the Xbox Wire, and he also confirmed that a remake of Voodoo Vince will be available for the PC and Xbox One this Spring.

Rare isn’t just going back to the past, they’re also looking to the future with Sea of Thieves, their first non-Kinect game in seven years. Arrrr you ready to learn more?
Sea of Thieves is a multiplayer pirate adventure in development for Windows 10 PCs and the Xbox One. The E3 trailer embedded above gives us a small taste of what the game world has to offer, depicting players finding buried treasure, fighting living skeletons, walking the plank, and engaging in ship-to-ship battles on the high seas.
During Micrsoft’s E3 Press Conference on Moday, Rare’s Studio Head, Craig Duncan, told attendees that Sea of Thieves is “by far, the most ambitious game Rare has ever created.” He also touted the game’s “limitless possibilities,” so would-be buccaneers will likely be able to engage in even more pirate shenanigans.
Sea of Thieves will be released in Fall 2016.
