Phil Spencer has further commented on several subjects with regards to the recently-launched Xbox One. According to a report from Game Planet on April 2, the new head of Xbox first hinted that Microsoft has “the best lineup of content in a long time” for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Phil Spencer already teased that “Halo” will be a part of E3 2014. His company may be planning to announced “Halo 2 Anniversary,” which is rumored to be coming for the Xbox One later this year. New details should also be revealed for the tentatively-titled “Halo 5,” which was announced at last year’s event.
The executive believed that the announcements at E3 2014 should help Microsoft catch up to Sony. He stated that the next-generation console cycle is still “early” although he admitted that the competition had a “great launch” with the PS4. Phil Spencer also mentioned that the console gaming is not dying. You can find some screens from “Halo 5” for Xbox One with the slideshow to the left of this article and his statement below (courtesy of Game Planet and Polygon):
We’re early on in the console generation, and obviously Sony’s having a great launch. Console gaming is doing incredibly well right now. Six months ago, everybody wondered if console gaming was dead… but this is a long, multi-year generation and my fundamental belief is that great games create the best platforms.
The Xbox One sold 3 million units as of the end of last year. However, Microsoft has not yet provided an updated figure on hardware sales. Sony revealed last month that the PS4 surpassed the six million systems sold milestone for the PS4.
The aforesaid “Halo 5” currently does not have a launch window.
