Aaron Greenberg on the upcoming API, Fable Legends and Xbox One screenshots feature.
Aaron Greenberg, marketing team lead across 1st & 3rd Party Game Studios at Microsoft has confirmed that DirectX 12 will have a substantial affect on PC as well as Xbox One. Responding to a user query on Twitter, Greenberg stated that both platforms will see effects provided developers make use of it.
This is contrary to what Phil Spencer said a few months ago. “It will help developers on Xbox One. It’s not going to be a massive change but will unlock more capability for devs,” Spencer tweeted back in June last year. It seems that progress has been made since then and Xbox One will apparently get affected substantially by the same.
Greenberg also gave a few updates regarding the upcoming Fable Legends. He stated that the game is turning out to be fun. “Yes I have played and game is really fun. Great game over live and top down villain is ideal for pc side,” he said. He also revealed that Fable Legends is in closed beta right now before they expand on it and begin the beta for players.
And finally, he provided a small update on screenshot captures by stating that they are coming ‘soon’.
