Phil Spencer Says Microsoft Will Take Risks Post Scalebound Cancellation

This week Microsoft announced that the Xbox One and PC exclusive Scalebound by Platinum Games was cancelled.

Head of the Xbox brand Phil Spencer said this week that the Scalebound cancellation was “better for Xbox gamers” 

Now Spencer on Twitter, says that Microsoft will take more risks with the games they greenlight. 

Spencer also said on Twitter that the Scalebound cancellation won’t stop Microsoft from signing third party games in the future, so expect more third party games with Microsoft’s support.

I won’t abandon singing independent studio projects, but I agree, first party internal studios are critical.
