It didn’t take long for the Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, to respond to the latest rumors. Those looking for an immediate conclusion will have to wait a little longer, however. According to Spencer, a business update event is planned for next week which is where Xbox will share more details about its vision and future.
“We’re listening and we hear you. We’ve been planning a business update event for next week, where we look forward to sharing more details with you about our vision for the future of Xbox. Stay tuned.”
– Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox
So we now know that more info is coming soon, but that’s about it. I will say however that this statement isn’t a denial, which I’m sure some could argue is an answer in itself.
Xbox Fans seem to be a bit scattered based on the comments in Phil’s Twitter thread, with some open to the idea of Xbox first-party titles coming to PlayStation, while others claim it will devalue what it means to be an Xbox player.
I obviously have no idea where this is going, but I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if Xbox starts to shed its exclusivity of first-party titles. Like Giant Bomb’s Jeff Grubb said, the console war is over. At this point, Xbox and by extension, Microsoft is going to look to make money where it can. And with the PlayStation 5 recently reaching 50 million units sold, there are a lot of potential customers.
