At E3 2018, Phil Spencer, Microsoft's Executive President of Video gaming, exposed brand-new Xbox hardware is on its way. Microsoft is apparently committed to supporting the Xbox brand in the long-term, and Spencer concurs-- though he admits the enormity these days's games might change how we view sequels and console generations.
"As you believe about this next wave of hardware that ultimately will come, numerous of the large, large video games individuals are playing today are still going to exist when the next hardware comes out," Spencer informs Eurogamer in an interview released today. "You're not likely to see a '2' after all those, as individuals are trying to move you to the next variation of those games. In the old design of video games shipping, getting played and after that disappearing-- which was all the video games-- a console transition was an easy step-function."
Spencer cites Minecraft as an example. The factor Xbox One didn't deliver with Minecraft 2 is because players do not necessarily desire a brand-new Minecraft; they just want Minecraft to keep getting much better.
"When you look at games like PUBG and Fortnite and you think of these large games and communities that'll be out there, when new hardware comes, people are still going to wish to play those video games, and it's going to be important for us as platforms to support them," Spencer says.Crazy crossover
