Gamers Should Expect Xbox One And Windows 10 Versions of Games If It Makes Sense – Phil Spencer

Microsoft has faced quite a few questions about the company’s approach when it comes to what it plans to do with games launching on both the PC and Xbox One. There have been some people who thought the company is looking to launch games on both platforms while others are screaming about what a horrible idea that would be. The launch of Quantum Break has not quelled the fears of some, who believe the game shouldn’t have launched on the PC and a ton of glitches have popped up in that version since launch day.

Microsoft, after coming under the spotlight with questions about those plans appears to be trying to make it clear that not every game is going to be launched on both platforms just for the sake of dual launches. Phil Spencer recently sat down with Venture Beat and talked about his company’s intention when it came to how they are working on games in the very near future. “Our intent is for genres and where the creative makes sense in both spaces, we’ll put our games in both spaces. You see us doing that. But I don’t want to make it some kind of artificial mandate. Then we end up with Frankengames that weren’t meant for a certain platform. Because some suit said, “Hey, everything has to run on both platforms,” you end up with something people don’t want.”

It’s good to see that Spencer understands this, as it seems to be the key worry people have about Microsoft right now. The announcement that the company is going to be bringing even more cool features to the console this E3 might help quell the fears as well.
