Phil Spencer Is Working Closely With Developers in Japan
Following speculation on what sparked his recent trip to Japan, Phil Spencer clarified the reason for his visit to various developers and publishers in Japan. Spencer claimed that he went around to multiple studios to talk about Project xCloud, Game Pass and the next generation of Xbox, the Xbox Series X. No specific studios or publishers were mentioned by the head of Xbox but it seems like Microsoft is trying to get more Japanese studios on board. Game Pass is $10 per month or $15 with Game Pass Ultimate which includes Xbox Live Gold.
Phil Spencer recently took to Twitter to put some rumors to bed and inadvertently spark some new ones when he said, “Amazing week in Japan talking Xbox Series X, @XboxGamePass and Project xCloud with publishers and studios. Played announced and unannounced games, talked #E32020 and discussed gaming’s future. Always come away motivated by the amazing creative talent here in Japan.” The primary questions coming out of his statement are which studios are interested in Game Pass, Project xCloud and the Xbox Series X, but we’re also curious what unannounced games Phil Spencer played.
Following Spencer’s trip to Japan, the official Xbox Game Pass Twitter account stated that February was going to be a particularly good month for the service, sparking even more speculation. With countless Final Fantasy titles coming to the Game Pass library, it’s possible that Phil Spencer intended to solidify a way to get Final Fantasy XIV on the service to complete the collection. With E3 being part of the conversation, it’s likely that fans will know the true purpose of this visit to Japan in June.
