A marketing executive at Microsoft's Xbox One division has explained the company will not showcase any new platform-exclusives at The Game Awards on Friday.
Geoff Keighley, the show's producer and host, recently claimed that the event will provide "more than a dozen world premieres," which has spurred fans to ask Microsoft's executives whether they have anything lined up.
But Aaron Greenberg, the marketing lead for Xbox, has poured cold water on the prospect by announcing on Twitter: "Since many have asked we are not planning any new game announcements @thegameawards. Looking forward to watching a great show however."
