New Phil Spencer Interview Explains Why Microsoft Held Back Some Things At E3

Phil Spencer Interview

Want to know why Microsoft held back some things at E3? In a new Phil Spencer interview, Waypoint discusses this topic with the Head of Xbox. Sometimes we see trailers for games that are a long way off at E3, but this year Microsoft chose not to do that. Mr. Spencer said:

“We are investing in new things. We’ve signed things just recently. I thought about, ‘Hey, from a PR standpoint it’d be really easy for me to put a trailer on screen even though I know the game’s not coming for 2.5 or 3 years.’ I didn’t want to do that.”

Some fans want to know that there are big games in development so they can have more faith in the Xbox brand and feel good about their purchase of a Xbox One and Mr. Spencer says that Microsoft realizes that:

“Trust that this is important to us. From the CEO of the company on down; if you talk to [Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella] about it, he would say I understand we need to invest in content in the gaming space and that is important. We are going to invest.”
