Microsoft Expects “Healthy User Engagement” on Xbox in Q4; Looks Forward to Announcing New Games at E3

During Microsoft’s quarterly financial conference call, Chief Financial Officer Amy Hood shared the outlook for the fourth quarter of the current fiscal year (between April 1st and June 30th) for the “More Personal Computing” segment, that includes gaming. According to Hood, revenue will be 8.7 and 9 billion dollars.

She also mentioned that the company expects continued healthy user engagement on Xbox platforms, and looks forward to announce new games at E3.

“In gaming we expect to see continued healthy user engagement on our Xbox platform, and we look forward to E3, when we’ll announce new titles for the upcoming fiscal year.”

Fiscal year 2017 starts on July 1st for Microsoft, and it’ll be interesting to see which games they’ll announce at E3. For the moment, all we can do is wait and see.

Earlier in the call, Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella mentioned new apps coming to the Windows Store from Disney and Square Enix (probably he meant the Monster Justice V app for Final Fantasy XV), with an increase by 60% in Universal Windows App developers during the past quarter.
