Let's go talk about Xbox. Specifically, let's go back to talking about Halo Infinite, the latest chapter in the upcoming Bungie / 343 Industries saga towards the end of the year su Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S e PC. In a recent interview for IGN, the boss of Microsoft's gaming division Phil Spencer has calmed the climate of concern within the community, which in recent times has begun to fear for the future of the series in the event of a commercial failure of the latest effort of 343 Industries.
Here is the good Phil's answer to the question about the future of the franchise:
“I don't know if this is what you want to hear from me or not, and so does the rest of the community but I want to be honest. I don't think that way about the future of the franchise. Halo will stay here for another 10 years to come. If Infinite is critical to its survival? Absolutely not. The game has such a lively fanbase and such an important history that it is one of those IPs that will stay with us. We don't take it for granted, but we firmly believe in this. "
Of course, Spencer didn't stop there, reiterating his faith in the work of the team behind the Master Chief's latest venture without the need to apply additional pressure.
"I would never want to put a team in the position of being told 'this project has to go well or who knows'", we are focused on bringing Halo to the holiday season and making it a game that will make all fans of the series proud, this is the most important to us. […] I trust the team, the progress made and I'm confident in Halo Infinite, that's all you need to know. It is not an "all or nothing" situation. I do not believe."
