Microsoft: ‘If We Lose Our Way With Halo, We Lose Our Way With Xbox’

Posted on August 3, 2011 AT 08:49am

We all knew that Halo was an important franchise to Microsoft however I don’t think anyone expected it to mean as much as Microsoft Game Studios Vice President Phil Spencer has revealed.

Speaking to OXM he said;

“I think it’s important that our AAA first party titles do help craft and shape how the platform evolves,”

“Halo just by its sheer nature of size,
of user base – as well as how important the FPS is in today’s gaming
world – has to play that role”

“If we lose our way with Halo, we lose
our way with Xbox, because Halo and the importance of games like CoD and
other shooters, that state of the art needs to continue to move
forward, and our team at 343 need to move forward with that. That’s
always going to be one of our success criteria.”
