Microsoft is keen to ensure that it’s next console, Project Scorpio is a desirable purchase from day 1 and that means having a range of games available from the get-go that really allow the platform to demonstrate all the powerful features that it will be equipped with.
Speaking with IGN at the start of the month, Xbox Chief Phil Spencer said,
“For people who think that there’s some massive AAA game sitting in my back pocket that I haven’t announced yet that I will at E3 and ship it this Fall- it could happen.”
In terms of what we can expect those launch titles to be, at the moment his lips are sealed. What Phil Spencer has said however, is to expect something that should deliver on the promise of a console experience that goes beyond what we are used to.
““I am very confident in the quality of the games that we’re launching that I’ve seen. When people see Scorpio, they’re going to see a demonstrable difference between that and the games they are playing now on any console. And I know content has to show that.
“So I do think it’s a little different than a traditional console launch, where you have to launch, say, five games on day one.
“I told the team I don’t want to do that, because it’s a part of the family of the same systems, every game on it will be playable on Xbox One, Xbox One S, Scorpio, and frankly on Windows 10 as well.
“So it’s a little bit different, but I know content has to be the thing that we use to demonstrate the capability of the box.”
