Phil Spencer Comments on Xbox's Rumored Plans to Go Multiplatform

An official update on the situation can be expected next week.

Over the past couple of days, there have been a number of reports suggesting that some of Xbox's exclusives, namely Hi-Fi RUSH, Starfield, and the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Great Circle and Senua's Saga: Hellblade II, will be released on PlayStation 5, causing concerns among Xbox fans that their favorite console might have no games exclusive to it in the near future.

In response to the rumors and reports, Phil Spencer, the Head of Xbox and CEO of Microsoft Gaming, took to Twitter to offer some insight into the ongoing situation. According to a brief statement from Spencer, the company acknowledges the situation and the feedback from fans, planning to share an official update and share its vision for the future of Xbox during an upcoming business event scheduled to take place sometime next week.

"We're listening and we hear you. We've been planning a business update event for next week, where we look forward to sharing more details with you about our vision for the future of Xbox. Stay tuned," reads the announcement.

Unfortunately, though, the statement does not provide hints about what that "vision" might entail, leaving thousands of worried Xbox owners in suspense as they await next week's event. However, if the reports about Microsoft's plans for the aforementioned games are accurate, it seems increasingly likely that Xbox will transition to a multiplatform approach in the future, as the idea of exclusives may not align with the company's new strategy.

One way or another, it seems that substantial changes are on the horizon for Xbox this year. Just recently, Microsoft fired around 2,000 of its workers, and while a significant number came from Blizzard Entertainment, this move had repercussions for employees within the Xbox division as well. Whether this wave of layoffs was a necessary move to ensure the success of the company's new strategy is up to debate at this point.
