Speaking to Shackernews, Microsoft Studios VP Phil Spencer admitted that Microsoft lost its focus on PC gaming over the years and he promised they will be back again. He reminded us that Windows still remains as an incredibly important part of the ‘One Microsoft’ strategy and Microsoft Studios need to focus on Windows to truly becoming a first-party gaming studio across all devices. He revealed that they are working on more Windows projects which are bigger and core gamers focused.
“You’ll see us doing more stuff on Windows. We probably have more individual projects on Windows than we’ve had in ten years at Microsoft Studios.”
“At the launch of Windows 8, we had about 30 games in the Windows Store. A lot of those you’d consider lightweight or casual games… But we’ve covered all of that property now. Now we’re starting to look at bigger and core gamer things. I’m excited by that.”
“Let’s start to act like a true first-party across all these devices. A service like Xbox Live that knows me and my content and my friends and achievements across all these devices. I think that’s an advantage for us.”
