Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, has praised big new releases including ones that aren’t available on the Xbox One. He stated that good games, regardless of what platform they’re on, are good for the industry.
Whilst interacting with some fans on Twitter, Spencer calmed some Xbox gamers who were concerned there weren’t enough big Xbox exclusives on the horizon by saying:
@EHawkinz Good games shipping are positive for industry. FH3, Zelda BotW, Civ6, HZD, Overwatch etc all make gaming better, celebrate them.

It’s a very classy move from Spencer and an indication that the Xbox boss has his eyes on the gaming industry as a whole, not just what’s best for Xbox. Horizon Zero Dawn is a big PlayStation 4 exclusive which is getting great reviews and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. However, Microsoft fans certainly have plenty to look forward to. Halo Wars 2 has just been released and upcoming games include the likes of Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, and State of Decay 2.
