On February 15th, Microsoft will release an update on the state of the Xbox business and the possibility of Xbox exclusives being cross-platform. The reveal will come in the form of a podcast featuring Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer, Xbox President Sarah Bond, and Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty. This special edition of the Official Xbox Podcast will be available to watch on YouTube or listen wherever podcasts are available, and will be broadcast live on Thursday at 3:00 PM EST/12:00 AM PST.
The discussion is expected to address rumors and reports of various Xbox exclusive games that could be coming to PlayStation and Nintendo consoles. Last week, Spencer hinted at specific details shared during the event, acknowledging the concerns of the gaming community.
Spencer assured Microsoft employees that there are no plans to stop making Xbox consoles, hinting at a strategy that includes “multiple types of devices.” If franchises like Halo, Gears of War, Forza, and Fable are indeed making their way to PlayStation and Nintendo consoles, it would mark a significant shift from Xbox’s past. More details about the company’s vision for the future of Xbox are expected to be shared during Thursday’s event.
