Microsoft’s TV march is still on-going.
Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft Game Studios, has spoken to Bloomberg about the Xbox TV studio that has been set up in Los Angeles. The studio is responsible for series such as Halo: The Television Series and is also working to bring unique TV content to the Xbox One.
Spencer stated that, “They have literally hundreds of ideas that they are incubating right now. We will have some new announcement for TV shows coming pretty soon.” He also stated that in regards to interactive sports broadcasting that, “We believe sports is a very interesting category globally.”
Considering that TV and sports held a significant portion of Microsoft’s plans for the Xbox One, with the initial reveal of the console in May heavily emphasizing TV content and shows for games such as Halo and Quantum Break, this is only a further indicator that it’s staying the course. How will it pan out after the Xbox One releases on November 22nd? That remains to be seen in the coming months.
