Looked like the kind of game that would have given some much needed variety to the Xbox One lineup. Halo, Gears and Forza are all great but the lack of variety was one of the main reasons I got rid of my Xbox One last year and was one of my major issues with the 360 too.
Perhaps it will be picked up by someone else if they can acquire the license from Microsoft.
Seems to be the form that any game that has had delays on X1 get canned. The flip side is that MS have form for announcing games/updates that release that same year, TMC collection, Forza Horizon 3, Dead Rising 4, back compat, preview program so I hope HOPE they have something decent to announce that isn't Halo 6 (tho I think Halo 5 is amazing online)

I hope they reveal the Scorpio BEFORE E3, it would make me feel slightly better about what may be announced, if not then half of MS' E3 will be about the hardware.
If Crackdown 3 isn't shown at this years E3 it's gone, wouldn't suprise me if it's cancelled a month before E3.
I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't unveil Scorpio in full until Autumn and closer to the next big update to Windows 10. If Scorpio is going to be the same games but in 4K they can make that point at E3 without having to go too deep into the hardware side of things. Unveiling Scorpio too soon would only harm sales of the current hardware unless they cut the price a lot.
I guess you're right, still would like to see what it's going to look like though. Have a feeling MS have something up there sleeve, axing an exclusive isn't an easy decision to make, I think they have something to buffer it, just hope it's not a Halo 6 as I said, I'd welcome the game but many will be jaded.
I think a Halo MMO is coming, I know the rumoured one turned into Destiny but 343 have enough ex Bungie guys to do something as big if not bigger. A Destiny Esque shooter with bigger worlds and fighting the Covenant would be great in theory, that or a Halo RPG.
