Microsoft’s Gaming EVP Phil Spencer To Open DICE Summit 2018

Who better to deliver the opening keynote than a Microsoft’s representative and who better than the Microsoft’s Gaming Executive Vice President Phil Spencer. Yes, that is true the 2018 Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain (DICE) Summit that is to take place in Las Vagas over the next few days will have the opening keynote given by Phil Spencer. The DICE Summit 2018 will take place between 21 and 22 Feb and if you wish to view a live streaming that has also been made available to you.

The DICE Summit will be offering industry talents from around the world, DICE offers a top class opportunity to share new ideas for those talents to their peers. With Phil Spencer as the man at the driver’s seat of the central 3 console manufacture and largely known for turning the fortunes of Xbox One around is the perfect fit and surely he has a lot to say regarding the theme of the conference.

While Spencer is the hot news we are also having other notable speakers like; the Creative Director at Bossa Studios, Chet Faliszek and the director of insights and trends for Ubisoft’s Strategic Innovation Lab, Lidwine Sauer who will be reinspiring the audience by discussing the navigation of the rapid currents of change which she discussed when DICE was held in Europe.

Last year on DICE 2017, the opening keynote was given by the Vice President of Blizzard Entertainment, Jeff Kaplan which went really well although with Microsoft opening this year is going to be a blast.

With that said the action role-playing video game developed by Guerrilla Games, Horizon Zero Dawn has been nominated in ten major categories for the 21 annual DICE Awards. This was announced by the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS).

The game Horizon Zero Dawn is also running for the title of game of the year. Although it must also compete with the likes of Super Mario Odyssey, Cuphead, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. All of these games have had their own successes and all of them are giving each other a tough margin to sneak through.

The Annual DICE Summit 2018 will take place from 21st February to 22 February.
