The next focus is the desktop, according to Spencer.
While there are some who wonder whether or not Microsoft has strayed a bit too far from the Xbox One with their interest in Windows 10 and the PC, Phil Spencer recently sat down with Venture Beat in order to make sure people knew Microsoft was indeed still plenty interested in the Xbox One. In fact, the Microsoft exec said the firm’s short term focus is decidedly on the Xbox One. In order to demonstrate this, Spencer talked about all the cool things the company is going to bring to this year’s E3.
While we know some of the things planned for the console, it’s the fact that things are planned at all that should make some feel better. “In the near term, our focus is on the Xbox console. We’re going to have a nice E3. The next focus is how we come to desktop. I’ll call it that. A lot of our franchises map better to desktop. A lot of our players play on both console and desktop. So let’s go after that and see what issues we run into, like control or voice communication or cross-buy, things we’re trying to enable. Let’s solve one big issue first and then look at the next wave of touch in mobile as a place we can go,” Spencer said.
Spencer added that the long term strategy is still to make sure that the PC is supported and brought under the fold even more. With games like Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2 and Crackdown 3 getting more information, the company will indeed be looking at a very nice E3
