Microsoft has confirmed that it is looking to develop a second generation of the beloved gaming console, Xbox. The claims are further solidified via a statement made by Xbox head, Phil Spencer in an interview with website The Verge. Spencer was asked if Xbox is just staying in the market for the sake of being the pinnacle brand of Microsoft. His answer was a clear no.
“I fully expect that you’ll see another console from us […] Our best customers are Xbox console customers. And I want to keep those people engaged both on the Xbox One and anything we might do in the future. I’m 100 percent committed to that,” he explained.
Spencer even expressed the company’s desire to keep the gaming console in the market despite ideas of just turning the device into an app which can cater to a whole lot other devices. “I want to expand what we’re able to do for more customers,” he added.
While specific details were not discussed such as what features fans can expect as well as the launching date, a separate article by Value Walk hinted that the rumored Xbox Two will see the light of day sooner than later.
With the stiff rivalry of Xbox with Sony’s PlayStation, Microsoft is still rolling out free games for Xbox Live Games Gold Subscribers. Most of these games include multiple titles and backward capacities for Xbox One users. The free games for December 2015 have been unveiled a few weeks back and gamers are already itching to know what are the other games that will be offered for free from January onwards. Although there are no specific titles yet, fans can assume that some titles that will be included in the upcoming releases might be “Far Cry 3,” “Hitman’s Mirror Edge” and “Deus Ex.”
