The conference Microsoft dell 'E3 this year has been quite interesting, even though the long-awaited titles have been missed. For example the developers of Forza Motorsport, Turn 10, they didn't show their new game as well The Initiative, that didn't show up during the event. Some even expected to see the new game in the series Fable, which was said to be carried out by the second team of Playground, developers of Forza Horizon. Now the boss of Xbox, Phil Spencer, explained why Microsoft focused more on games that will be released in the near future than those whose jobs are still in full swing.
Spencer told Kotaku to be proud of the fact that 12 of the 14 first party titles that Microsoft showed at E3 would be published within the following year.
"We were really able to focus on what's coming now, which I think is fantastic. And then I think of the studies: where was The Initiative? Where was Turn 10? Where was the second Playground team? "
He added that it was "nice" not to have to show all his games at the show. He said teams like 343 Industries (Halo) and Turn 10 (Forza Motorsport) had the "time" to invent new games that really excite people.
"We gave them time - did we, what, four Halo in four years? - giving them the opportunity to really think and have a creative impact. [The speech for] Turn 10 is similar. I want to give them time to think about their plans. I like what they do with Motorsport but you have to be able to listen to your studies when they need time and want to focus on more things.
Phil Spencer then went on to say that the quality of first party games is "very important". He admitted that in the past "it was more difficult" to reconcile the releases of the various first party Xbox games with publication dates chosen years before. Now that Microsoft has more studios - at the moment it owns fifteen - the company has more room for maneuver and can "Creating space to focus on quality".
In short, the head of Xbox prefers to let his software houses breathe and give them time to express themselves freely. Without a doubt, an excellent vision that we hope will bear good fruit in the future.
