Xbox Head Acknowledges Leak of Documents, Expresses Disappointment
In a recent development in the Microsoft vs. FTC trial, documents about Xbox’s future plans have been leaked, sparking conversation and concern among gaming enthusiasts. Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, has responded to the leak expressing his disappointment at the unauthorized sharing of the team’s work.
Spencer acknowledged the leaked emails and documents, stating that they have caused disappointment within the Xbox team. However, he also emphasized that the leaked information may not necessarily reflect Xbox’s real plans. He assured fans that there are significant changes and exciting projects in the works for Xbox’s future, and the company will share the official plans when they are ready.
Among the leaked documents were revelations about Xbox’s hardware future. Plans for next-generation consoles in 2028, as well as a “cloud hybrid” Xbox, were disclosed. In addition, mid-generation refreshes for the Xbox Series X and S are reportedly planned for August and October 2024.
The leaks also provided insights into potential gaming accessories that Xbox may be considering. These include a gaming mouse and keyboard, a one-hand controller, and a mobile controller, catering to different gaming preferences and needs.
In terms of upcoming games, the leaks suggest that Bethesda, a subsidiary of Microsoft, may be working on remasters of popular titles such as The Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion and Fallout 3. There is also mention of a next-generation update for the highly acclaimed game, Red Dead Redemption 2.
The leaked documents shed light on Phil Spencer’s ambitions and internal communications as well. The desire to acquire Nintendo and discussions about a perceived “huge hole” in Xbox’s 2022 game lineup were both part of the leaked information.
Although the leaked documents have been taken down from the FTC website, they have already circulated online, causing unrest in the gaming community. IGN has reached out to Microsoft for additional comment on the leaks, but no further statement has been provided as of yet.
As fans eagerly await more information about Xbox’s future plans, it is clear that the leak has generated significant buzz and excitement. Despite the disappointment expressed by Phil Spencer, gamers are hopeful for the official announcements that will bring clarity to Xbox’s upcoming projects and innovations.
