Microsoft’s Xbox Division Head Phil Spencer took to Twitter again to answer the questions of the fans, giving information on upcoming backward compatible games and more.

First of all, we get a mention of Skate 3, which Spencer is “confident” about bringing to Xbox One via backward compatibility, even if he can’t commit to a date.

We also get a mention of Blue Dragon. Bringing it on as a backward compatible game is the focus, while no sequel is indevelopment.

Spencer also teased the coming “soon” of some backward compatible titles he has “really been looking forward” to.

Interestingly, Spencer mentioned that Phantom Dust is coming along well. The question actually asked about the “new” game, so we wonder if he’s talking about the actual new rendition of Yukio Futasugi’s game that went in development limbo after the closure of Darkside Game Studios, or the recently announced remaster.

As an additional bonus Spencer mentioned that Microsoft “likes” the idea of applying the concept of the Design Lab to Xbox One S consoles as well, while he has nothing specific to announce right now.

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.
