Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, has revealed in a recent interview for the Washington Post (goes VGC) that one of the main objectives that Xbox has once the purchase of Activision Blizzard is fully formalized is to give free rein for development studios to work on a multitude of franchises. Of course, we are talking about sagas as important for many players as it is Call of Duty, whose next titles will also arrive for PlayStation systems, although others that have been in the drawer of oblivion for several years, such as Guitar Hero or Skylanders, could return through the front door.
Spencer wants her childhood sagas to return
“I was looking at the IP (intellectual property) list, I mean come on!” Spencer commented excitedly. “King’s Quest, Guitar Hero…I should know this, but I think they have witches“According to the original post, the Xbox boss promised that he would talk to developers to work on a wide variety of sagas beyond the best known. “We look forward to working with them when the deal closes to make sure we have the resources for work on the franchises that I have loved since my childhood and that teams really want to have. I look forward to these conversations. I really think it’s about adding resources and increasing capacity,” Spencer added.
Pitfall, Prototype, Singularity, Soldier of Fortune, Spyro the Dragon, True Crime… These are just some of the sagas that could have a triumphant return with new installments adapted to the resources available to development studios today. In any event, Xbox is committed to bringing Xbox Game Pass as many Activision Blizzard games as possible. In addition, we must not forget that mobile gaming is one of the main reasons for buying the company, so some sagas may return with a facelift adapted to this format.
