Phil Spencer Going to Japan to Meet Third Party Publishers; Talks More on Project Scorpio and More

on February 19, 2017 7:26 AM

Last Night, Xbox Division Head Phil Spencer took to Twitter to respond to questions from fans, as he often does.

First and Foremost, Spencer will be in Japan next week to talk to third party publishers. He mentioned that it was great to have Final Fantasy XV on Xbox One, and he knows that people want more.

Then he moved to talk about the upcoming console code named Project Scorpio, mentioning that games, old and news, will have to show why someone should chose Scorpio, and he feels “really good” about progress on that.

Unfortunately it would be tough to provide 4K support for Xbox 360 games, as for most there aren’t any 4K assets. One of the perks about most recent Xbox games is that they have 4K assets due to the PC version.

Once more, Spencer said that he’d like to have a big third party baseball game on Xbox platforms.

Unfortunately, we hear that at the moment Microsoft isn’t doing anything with the Crimson Skies IP, but Spencer feels that the setting is cool, and the publisher could do more with it in the future.

Spencer also mentioned that chances of seeing Civilization Revolution joining the Xbox One backward compatibility list are pretty good.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. 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.
