During the last episode of the podcast Xbox era Phil Spencer, Head of Gaming Microsoftsaid the company’s goal is to ensure a steady stream of high-end games coming out of Xbox Studios.
“We do have a lot of great games in development. We want to get to the point where there is a steady stream of great games,” says Spencer, admitting that this is a goal that has yet to be met by taking the current quarter without having a major release from Xbox Studios. “We are moving in that direction right now. We don’t have a major game for this quarter, so Zenimax boss Matt Booty, the teams and studios want to get to the point where we actually have a great start for our platform and games that people can regularly admire.”
With acquisitions in recent years, the number of studios under the wing Microsoft Gaming has grown significantly, so publishing quality exclusives on a regular basis is not an unattainable goal, no matter how ambitious it may be.
