Phil Spencer: “Interesting” News for Both Xbox and PC Gamers Coming in January; Not Focusing on 3D

on December 23, 2014 1:49 AM

As he often does, Microsoft’s head of the Xbox Division Phil Spencer answered a few questions from the fans today, giving some rather interesting insight.

First of all, he was asked if the new Gears of War will include 3D support like Gears of War 3, but he mentioned that Microsoft’s first party studios aren’t focusing on that tech. It’s relevant to mention that he clarified that Microsoft didn’t actually announce a new Gears of War yet, even if everyone knows it’s coming.

Secondly, he mentioned that the Windows 10 event coming on January 21st will include something interesting for both PC and Xbox gamers.

To another fan who mentioned that this generation has mostly been about graphics, he promised that we’re going to see innovation beyond that before this generation is over.

Finally, Spencer also praised Super Time Force developer Capybara Games.

What could Microsoft be showing on January 21st? While we have no way to know for now, it could very well be a new and unified user interface for both Windows and Xbox One, or something about DirectX 12, but in this case your guess is as good as mine.

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.
