Xbox director of product planning Albert Penello has responded to rumors claiming that the Xbox One is experiencing eleventh hour development issues ahead of its November launch.
The rumors centered around several unnamed developers who claimed that the latest Xbox One SDK was suffering from numerous bugs. “There is a really bizarre phenomenon going on right now where the frenzy for news, drama, and behind-the-scenes dealings is clouding logic and reason,” he wrote on Reddit.
“There is nothing going on behind the scenes nearly as interesting as everyone would like to believe. We are a month away from launch, and people are working hard to finalize the last of the bugs. There are still a lot things left to be done. We’re crunching and I’m sure Sony’s crunching too.
“I know people are excited. I’m sorry but things are nowhere near as dire or dramatic or exciting as everyone would like to believe. That’s why I’m not commenting on every single random rumor that comes along, because everything I see is so drastically overblown vs. reality.”
