Eurogamer, usually a reliable source, reports that “At least 10 non-sequel Kinect games will be announced at trade show E3 next month.” Confirmed by multiple sources, one stating that the games “won’t be obvious” while another claimed Microsoft is expected to “serve the hardcore” at E3 with its Kinect announcements.
Kinect Sports 2
Besides this, Eurogamer also writes that Rare is set to unveil the (obvious) Kinect Sports 2 scheduled for release “Christmas 2011”, as a successor to the most popular Kinect game to date: Kinect sports. Next to Kinect Sports 2, the developer Rare is reportedly also working on a second Kinect game that is building on new IP, but further details are not known.
