Microsoft has regularly been censured for its lack of a first-party lineup. And it has been done never more so than now. With some prominent cancelations abandoning them with what seems to be a somewhat critical lineup of games, in number and assortment. The old hold back of Halo/ Gears/ Forza has frequently been utilized to portray the Microsoft first-party. And there is quite a lot of truth to it nowadays. But Phil Spencer has something else to say about it.
Phil Spencer Says Microsoft Still Has The Best First Party Lineup
Phil Spencer was talking on IGN’s podcast Unlocked. In the podcast Xbox manager, Phil Spencer said that Microsoft has some incredible things in progress. He was expressing that the evidence will eventually be in the pudding. And that ideally, the lineup will show itself in the future very soon.
‘I’m unfathomably pleased with our lineup this year,’ he said. ‘I’ve said it sometime recently. Yet this will be an intriguing year for us. We don’t have Gears, we don’t have a Halo first-person shooter. And I get two sides on this. A few people say “each year it’s Halo/Gears/Forza,” and after that, we have a year that is not those things. And people then say “gracious, now you’re in a bad position!” But I take a look at Crackdown, I take a look at State of Decay 2, I take a look at Sea of Thieves, I’m having an awesome time with Halo Wars 2.”
What could Phil Spencer be alluding to? Are there some major unannounced Xbox One exclusives that could ideally show the sort of eccentricity and desire that Microsoft used to have in the early Xbox and Xbox 360 days? E3 needs to come quickly.
