We finally have a date and time! We’ll find out all about the future of Xbox mid-week. The publisher himself announced it with a short statement on Twitter.
The future of Xbox: goodbye to consoles or exclusives?
Don’t expect trailers or anything. The format chosen, to reach as many people as possible, is that of the podcast. We will find out everything about the future of Xbox through an in-studio interview with Phil Spencer, who will be joined by Sarah Bond and Matt Booty. It is not the first time that this form of communication has been chosenanother podcast was made three months ago to talk about the acquisition of Activision-Blizzard.
But what to expect? In the past few days the internet literally went crazy because of the announcement. The most realistic hypothesis is that some Xbox exclusives are coming to PlayStation 5 or Nintendo Switch, with Starfield in the front row. Another one a more remote hypothesis would involve saying goodbye to consoleseffectively becoming a publisher that will exploit the power of the cloud to reach Smart TVs without external devices (as it already does with Samsung TVs). Goodbye to consoles which however has already been denied by Jez Corden.
In fact, very few people know what Phil Spencer will say. And U.S we will only know on Thursday 15 February 2024 at 9.00 pm Italian time. As already mentioned, there will be a pre-recorded podcast that will be published on Youtube on the official channel at this address, and on platforms dedicated to podcasts such as Spotify or Apple Podcasts.
Please join us for a special edition of the Official Xbox Podcast.
