Microsoft is teasing a “games announce” of some kind for tomorrow, January 28th, with both Xbox boss Phil Spencer and Xbox frontman Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb hinting that something exciting is on the cards.

Spencer set the speculation ball in motion tweeting earlier this morning:

Major Nelson picked it up and kicked it forward with a tweet of his own, writing:

These exciting tweets leave us only with questions about what Microsoft could possibly have to reveal so early in the year. It’s most certainly a new Xbox One game, but could it be the official unveiling of this year’s Halo? Perhaps a look at what the newly formed Black Tusk development studio is working on? Crackdown 3?

Let us know what Microsoft could be planning to reveal tomorrow – set those minds to speculate!
