Big names will be on display for the reveal.

Microsoft plans to show Forza 7, Red Dead Redemption 2, and other big games to showcase Scorpio's power

Although we still have no idea when exactly Project Scorpio will get its proper reveal, details continue to trickle out about the console. Windows Central has apparently gotten ahold of some marketing materials for the eventual reveal, and they list a number of big games that are expected to be used to showcase Scorpio's six teraflops and 4K resolution capabilities.

Here's a list of those games:

1st Party Titles:

  • Forza Motorsport 7
  • State of Decay 2
  • Crackdown 3

3rd Party Titles:

  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Star Wars Battlefront 2
  • Call of Duty 2017
  • Madden NFL 18
  • FIFA 18

There's also still no release date for Project Scorpio, but it is expected to come sometime this year, most likely during the Holiday Season. If Scorpio does plan to release in 2017, it would also stand to reason that Forza 7, State of Decay 2, and Crackdown 3 could all release this year as well. Phil Spencer previously emphasized making sure that first party games being available at Scorpio's launch was "critical" for its success.

Given that these games are among the first to be shown running on the console, it wouldn't make much sense to show them running and not have them ready like Spencer promised. It's still all conjecture at this point, but it doesn't appear long now that we will finally get a look at what Project Scorpio is all about.
