The future is bright for Xbox One owners, according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer. Spencer says that there are plenty of exclusives in pipeline, and that these games will continue to play a major role on the Xbox One.
Exclusive games will continue to play a major role for Xbox in the new console generation
Speaking with CNN, Spencer elaborated on his games first strategy for the console. “Exclusive games will continue to play a major role for Xbox in the new console generation, just as they have in previous generations. I’m a true believer in our exclusive platform features like Kinect, SmartGlass, and the Cloud, but games have always been the bedrock of our consoles at Xbox. On Xbox One, we came out of the gate strong last November with Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3, and Ryse: Son of Rome, and we haven’t slowed down having just released Kinect Sports Rivals, and of course Titanfall. This E3 is important for us to show gamers our future plans for exclusives and third-party support,” said Spencer.
So what does Microsoft and the Xbox One have to offer going forward? Spencer says that there’s a strong lineup of games on the way.
“Right now I think we have a strong lineup of in-development exclusives, including games like Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Quantum Break, and Halo, in addition to some exciting titles you will hear more about at E3. It’s going to be great at E3 to be able to share the games coming exclusively to Xbox One, and it’s only going to get better.”
With E3 2014 just around the corner, Microsoft’s yearly press conference is most definitely the spot where we’ll be hearing more about what’s coming to the Xbox One that we don’t already know about.
