Although we are still in 2014, Microsoft already has an idea about what titles will be released in Autumn 2015. After looking at production schedules and how the games are coming along, Phil Spencer stated that the line-up of titles scheduled to release in Autumn 2015 for Xbox One is so crowded and great that some of these titles might have to be moved to a different release schedule.

"Looking at production schedules and how things are lining up, next fall is just crazy," said Spencer to Major Nelson on his latest podcast. "I mean, this fall from a 1st-party/3rd-party standpoint is great. Next fall, I don't... Honestly it's not hype at all, I honestly don't know that we can actually ship all the stuff that thinks it's trying to ship next fall. It just might be too crowded and we might purposely try to move some things out to spread it. You have to [give them some breathing room], you have to do that."

"It's nice as an industry that we don't all have to get on top of each [other], just clobber ourselves and compete against one other, because there are enough hours in the year for a gamer to go play great games, but people want to play the things that are current.

"And I think as publishers and first parties have success at multiple points of the year it's just a good thing for us, because having three/four great games ship all in the same week at the end of October, while maybe on some forecast somewhere it feels like that's the right thing to do, just as an industry I think it's much more healthy if we have more beats throughout the year where people can ship great games."

At the moment, Microsoft has only officially announced two games for Autumn 2015, Ryse of the Tomb Raider and Halo 5: Guardians. This means that there is still a great variety of titles to be revealed.
