Speaking to VentureBeat, the publisher's president, David Haddad, discussed Microsoft's Project Scorpio and NX, saying the publisher's support of these platforms is unquestionable.

"We have great relationships with all the console platforms. We believe we play a role in each of them," he said. "What I saw with the announcements that were made at [E3 2016]--I'm fairly bullish about the console cycle, about gamers spending time on them and finding great content, about publishers being able to find returns on increasing investments in that space."

He added: "We're constantly deciding how to navigate that, but supporting them is not a question for us."
