Microsoft’s E3 2014 press conference will focus more on games and less on the company’s executives, Microsoft Studios corporate VP Phil Spencer has revealed.

When asked on Twitter if this year’s conference will be “as game focused as last year,” Spencer replied, “Yes, I think you’ll see very few execs.

“We are already over our 90 minute time limit and having to move stuff out of show,” he added.

Last week, the company officially unveiled DirectX 12, the next iteration in their gaming API. During the announcement Forza developer Turn 10 Studios showcased Forza Motorsport 5 running with DirectX 12 on a PC being powered by an Nvidia GeForce Titan Black. According to the developer, DirectX 12 allowed them to lock down a consistent 60 frames per second.
