Microsoft’s Xbox Division head honcho Phil Spencer is always quite open to conversations with the fans on social media, and today he went on one of his usual Twitter sprees, talking about quite a few interesting topics:

First of all, he talked about Rise of the Tomb Raider, mentioning that it “turned out great,” and praising Crystal Dynamics.

Spencer also talked about the possibility of a sequel for Sunset Overdrive, explaining that nothing is being done right now, but good things have a chance to be revisited.

Asked whether Project Gotham Racing 3 is going to get the backwards compatibility treatment, he explained that games with a lot of licenses involved pose a challenge, because those licenses would need to be renewed for the Xbox One.

Finally, he mentioned that Microsoft will look into supporting Cortana in English when your region doesn-t support the feature, which would be a definitely welcome option.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
