E3 2018: Phil Spencer Talks New Xbox, Cross-Play, Halo Infinite, Crackdown 3 Delay, And Much More
Xbox boss Phil Spencer stopped by the Giant Bomb at Nite livestream at E3 2018 this week and he spoke openly and frankly about so many Xbox topics. In the lengthy chat, Spencer discussed pretty much everything you would want to know about Xbox, including why Microsoft announced plans for a new Xbox at the show, how much of a bummer it is that Sony won't allow cross-play with Xbox, the Halo Infinite reveal, the sales lead that PS4 has over Xbox One, the decision to delay Crackdown 3 again, and a lot more. It is really, really good, deep dive chat that goes on for about an hour.
Grab a coffee, get comfortable, and enjoy:
Xbox had a strong E3 showing this year. The company highlighted dozens of games on its stage, while it also announced the formation of a new studio and the acquisition of four others. It went a long way towards showing Microsoft is committed to making exclusives games.
The reveal of Halo Infinite was a big deal, but it is important to note that the trailer shown during the briefing was for the new Slipspace game engine, not the actual game itself. Still, it was impressive to see and it leaves us excited to learn more about the next instalment in the mega-franchise.
