  • Grounded

Additionally, during a follow-up interview, Spencer stated that the company isn’t ruling out the possibility of Starfield and Indiana Jones arriving on PlayStation and Nintendo platforms. According to him, the industry shouldn’t ever rule out a game going to any other platform. He said that Microsoft is focused on four games and learning from the experience. However, he clarified that he doesn’t want to create a false expectation on those other platforms that this is somehow the first four to “get over the dam and then the dam’s going to open and that everything else is coming”. He stated that this is not the immediate plan.

Previously, during Microsoft’s annual shareholders meeting as well as a recent Bloomberg interview, CEO Satya Nadella had hinted at the company’s plans to release Xbox first party games across all platforms, including PlayStation and Nintendo consoles. He stated this in response to a question regarding the health and future of Xbox. In his response, Nadella said that, after the Activision Blizzard King acquisition, Microsoft now has the ability to do what it has always set out to do, which is to build great games and deliver them to players “across all platforms”, which includes “Xbox and consoles, the PCs, and now even including mobile gaming and cloud gaming”. During the Bloomberg interview, he specifically mentioned that he wants Microsoft to be a “good publisher” for both PlayStation and Nintendo. He stated that, prior to the Activision Blizzard King acquisition, Microsoft was “number three” or “number four”, and now post-acquisition, he believes that the company has a chance of being a good publisher on Sony, Nintendo, PCs and Xbox.
