Xbox “Upping” Its “Investment” In Xbox One First Party Titles, Says Phil Spencer

Despite Microsoft’s claim about its first-party titles of 2017, the company has yet to show anything for it. The only notable first-party title for Xbox One launched this year so far is Halo Wars 2 and fans are worried about the rest of the year. However, the company is stepping up its game for Xbox One first party titles.

Speaking with The Guardian, Xbox head, Phil Spencer, said that the company’s focus is currently at the content they are building for Xbox One. About Xbox One first party titles, Spencer added that he does not want to announce things that far from release but he assured that the company is upping its investment in first-party titles.

Right now the focus is really on the content that we’re building. I know I get some community pushback on our first-party [slate], and what position we’re in, and I want to say to people: that same level of commitment you felt from myself and from the team as we’ve evolved platform over the last three years – as we’ve evolved service over the last three years, as we’ve evolved and innovated hardware over the last three years – is going on with our first party. I don’t want to go and pre-announce a bunch of things, but we are upping our investment, there’s no doubt about that.

While Microsoft has not yet revealed the full 2017 lineup for Xbox One, but Phil Spencer has assured that Xbox One will have more first party titles compared to last year and also confirmed that a new IP will be one of them.
