Statement from Microsoft CEO on Console Exclusive Games

Dear gamers,

I hope this message finds you well and that you are enjoying your gaming experiences on our Xbox consoles. Today, I would like to address an important topic that has been a subject of discussion and debate within the gaming community – console exclusive games.

At Microsoft, we have always been committed to providing the best gaming experiences to our players. We believe in the power of gaming to bring people together, to inspire creativity, and to push the boundaries of what is possible. We understand that exclusive games have been a significant part of the gaming industry for many years, and they have played a crucial role in shaping the identity of different gaming platforms.

However, as the gaming landscape continues to evolve, we believe it is time to rethink the concept of console exclusive games. Our goal is to create a gaming ecosystem that is inclusive, accessible, and player-centric. We want to break down barriers and enable gamers to play the games they love, regardless of the platform they choose.

To achieve this, we have made the decision to adopt a new approach to console exclusive games. Moving forward, our focus will be on creating games that are available across multiple platforms, including Xbox consoles, PC, and mobile devices. We want to give our players the freedom to play their favorite games wherever and whenever they want, without being limited by the hardware they own.

This decision does not mean that we will stop creating unique and compelling gaming experiences. On the contrary, we will continue to invest in the development of high-quality games that showcase the capabilities of our platforms. However, instead of restricting these games to a single console, we will make them available to a wider audience, ensuring that more players can enjoy the fruits of our creative endeavors.

We understand that this shift may raise concerns among some of our loyal Xbox console owners. We want to assure you that our commitment to delivering exceptional gaming experiences on Xbox consoles remains unwavering. We will continue to invest in hardware innovation, software optimization, and exclusive features that enhance the gaming experience on our consoles.

Furthermore, we believe that by embracing a more inclusive approach to gaming, we can foster a stronger and more vibrant gaming community. We want to bring players together, regardless of the platform they choose, and create a space where everyone can connect, compete, and collaborate. We believe that this will not only benefit our players but also the gaming industry as a whole.

In conclusion, the gaming industry is evolving, and so are we. We believe that by reimagining the concept of console exclusive games, we can create a more inclusive and player-centric gaming ecosystem. We remain committed to delivering exceptional gaming experiences on Xbox consoles while also ensuring that our games are accessible to a wider audience across multiple platforms.

Thank you for your continued support and for being a part of the Xbox community.
