Phil Spencer to Unveil Major Business Update for Xbox on Feb. 15

Microsoft has announced that it will reveal updates on the Xbox business and the possibility of Xbox exclusives going multiplatform on Thursday, Feb. 15. The reveal will be in the form of a podcast featuring Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer, Xbox president Sarah Bond, and head of Xbox Game Studios Matt Booty.

Last week, Spencer hinted at concrete details being shared during the event, acknowledging the concerns of the gaming community. The discussion is expected to address rumors and reports about various Xbox-exclusive games possibly making their way to PlayStation and Nintendo consoles.

Despite the potential for multiplatform releases, the future of Xbox will reportedly still include a hardware component. Spencer assured Microsoft employees that there are no plans to stop making Xbox consoles, hinting at a strategy that involves “multiple kinds of devices.”

If franchises like Halo, Gears of War, Forza, and Fable are indeed going to PlayStation and Nintendo consoles, it would mark a significant shift from Xbox’s past. More details on the company’s vision for the future of Xbox are expected to be shared during the Thursday event.
