Says the game’s release on PC will be better in the long run.
Phil Spencer has been walking the line between advocating more Xbox One games on the PC and making sure those games are high quality. The Xbox One exec took to Twitter again to talk specifically about the recent announcement that Quantum Break is no longer an Xbox One exclusive. The game will now also be coming to PC and that news has been met with mixed reactions.
However Spencer has defended this decision. He responded, “This is exactly what we’ve been saying since GDC. I agree. More players, more games, better ecosystem.” Despite the fact that Spencer clearly likes the idea of having more games on both the Xbox One and PC, he went on to make it clear that he also wants to continue to focus on the Xbox One.
Despite Spencer’s claims that there is focus for both the PC and Xbox One, there were some gamers who voiced their displeasure that Microsoft was still paying attention to the PC at all. It seems that despite the company using Windows 10 early and often, Spencer wants people to know that Microsoft has been focusing on the Xbox One more than the firm has paid attention to consoles since he joined the firm.
While Spencer was largely polite during his conversations about Quantum Break, he seemed a bit annoyed when one Twitter user claimed he canceled his preorder for Quantum Break simply because the game is coming to the PC. The exec responded “you cancelled a pre-order for a game you want to play because someone else get’s to play the game on Windows?”
That’s actually a pretty good question.
