In front of the generation of Xbox 360, where Microsoft has been in the quality of its exclusive video games beyond the indisputable presence of the Forza series. For what is this? The head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, has wanted to offer a recent interview of the causes of these stumbles.
” I think the quality of our first-party is very important. There was a moment where, given our number of internal studies and videogames, as well as other projects in which we invested, we had a lot of pressure on everything we were doing. It became more complicated to manage a portfolio when you needed everything, at a high level of quality, to meet the exit date offered three years ago ” Said the head of division, during an extensive interview with the Kotaku portal, after being questioned about how Sony and Nintendo had had major releases of their developers in recent years.
Thanks to the support of recent years, we have been able to create a space that allows us to focus on quality. And will it happen again? Absolutely. ” Both now and we have received support that you have allowed to invest in our first-party, adding eight new studies and creating a space that allows us to focus on quality, “he said, affirming that he feels good about the work of several leaders of Xbox Game Studios like Rod Fergusson (The Coalition), Bonnie Ross (343 Industries), Alan Hartman (Turn 10), etc.
And for better proof E3 2019, and not exactly that could present. ” One of the things that I loved about this year, at least in my head, what we could not show to the public of 14 first-party video games a dozen is released this coming year. able to focus only on the closest thing and that, for me, was something incredible, why are you start thinking and you ask yourself, where is The Iniative? Where is Turn 10? Where is the second Playground Games development team? ” said Phil Spencer recalling that this was not always the case.
The Xbox boss also commented that, thanks to this new situation, it can now provide more time to developers, in this way, once they reach the market, they can have a creative impact. We must remember, on the other hand, that Microsoft is open to sign more internal studies.
