Microsoft planning “lots of great stuff” for 2009

I’m sure we’re all worrying about our wallets in the next few weeks up till Christmas, but what is Microsoft doing next year? According to Stephen McGill, head of gaming and entertainment at Microsoft UK speaking to Videogamer: “lots of great stuff” and there’s even stuff we “don’t know about.

Well I know a lot of the games coming out from us and our third parties. Most of them, in fact, have not been announced because everyone’s very focused on what’s out for Christmas. So it would do our third party partners a disservice for me to announce their great line-ups before they’re ready to,” McGill said.

He continued: “So obviously we’ve announced things like Halo Wars coming out in the Spring, Halo 3: Recon later next year, Resi Evil 5 is coming to the platform, [I’m] really excited about that. So I think we’re very focused on what’s coming out for Christmas, we’ve talked about things coming out early next year. Very soon at some point we’ll have the exclusive content for Grand Theft Auto on Xbox 360. So there’s lots of great stuff coming in 2009 that people know about. Lots more, I’m sure that they don’t know about.

I think we’ll see Alan Wake finally releasing next year (almost four years after its planned release). What do you think we’ll see in 2009? Leave us a comment with your thoughts.
