Phil Spencer prepares a great and ambitious future for Xbox
Phil Spencer explained long ago the development philosophy that they have on Xbox. Thanks to this we know that the company divides its projects into 3 different categories: Horizon 1 (immediate future), Horizon 2 (2 or 3 years of development) and Horizon 3 (up to 10 years of development).
Xbox completed several projects with the launch of Xbox Series X | S, the arrival of Xbox Game Pass to more systems and the premiere of Xbox Cloud Gaming in several regions, so Spencer is again filling the list with news of all kinds for the future.
The manager of course did not reveal anything about his plans for now, but said that his goal is always to exceed the limits of what they do, because “the players will always demand more.” For this reason they will invest in new projects of the different categories mentioned.
“We started a lot of Horizon 3 stuff years ago. XCloud was one of them, Game Pass was another … What I’m excited about now is that we’re doing the same thing, we’re refilling the pipeline. Horizon 3? What are the things that in 5 or 10 years we are going to be very happy to have started today? “Spencer commented.
The future of the company is a mystery for now, but we know that it plans to bring the entire Xbox ecosystem directly to televisions. On the other hand, Spencer recently commented that he wants to invest in more social and casual content for Xbox.
Finally, the manager has also spoken about the trends that will not continue in the short or long term. A clear example is NFT games, which Xbox has already turned its back on.
