In an interview with Ars Technica, the head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, shared his desire to continue the continuation of Warcraft and StarCraft. However, he will be able to make such decisions only after the purchase of Activision Blizzard is completed.
Spencer said that he considers the release of the first StarCraft a landmark moment in the industry. The game not only made a huge contribution to eSports, but also came out on the Nintendo 64, being a real-time strategy game, and also had a good story and staging by the standards of the genre. So he’s very excited about the prospect of talking to the Activision Blizzard teams to discuss what might be part of Xbox in the future.
However, the head of the gaming division of Microsoft stressed that he cannot currently answer the question about the future of these franchises. Currently, the corporation does not own Activision Blizzard, so it cannot actively work on these projects. “But the thought of it really excites me, as someone who has spent many hours in these games,” Spencer added.
Microsoft plans to close the deal to buy Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion by June 30, 2023.
