Microsoft’s Xbox team head honcho Phil Spencer often interacts with the fans, providing interesting information about the future of the consoles under the green flag.

Today he went on one of his usual Twitter sprees, starting with pledging the team’s focus on the Xbox One.

He also mentioned that he understands why people want to make sure that Microsoft is going to support the console.

Asked whether there will be another generation for Microsoft’s consoles or not, Spencer’s answer was definitely positive:

Spencer also promised that Microsoft will share a release date for the new Xbox One experience “fairly soon.”

Unfortunately support for multi-disk games isn’t yet ready and won’t be in at the launch of backwards compatibility.

Spencer also praised the work of the team on the new dashbord, mentioning that there’s more work to be done.

That said, the team has been making good progress on fixing the issue reported by the community:

There’s no date in sight for the end of Xbox Live support for Xbox 360. As a matter of fact, according to Spencer, backwards compatibility will increase usage.

Finally, as a funny note of color, when asked whether he favors Master Chief or Locke in Halo 5: Guardians, Spencer opted for Equidistance.

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.
