Xbox One and Windows 10 Being Unified?

Posted on March 7, 2016 at 6:19 pm

According to Xbox boss Phil Spencer, Microsoft isn’t trying to unify the Xbox One and Windows 10 platform.

“I wouldn’t say our strategy is to unify, because when I hear ‘unify’ I worry a bit that people will interpret, my own teams included, ‘Hey, we just want to say a game is a game and all games should run everywhere’. What I want to make sure is that gamers on our platforms, you feel like you have access to as many games as you can, and as a developer you feel like you have the tools and service to reach as many gamers as you can. We don’t think Forza 6 is what the PC racing fan thinks of as a racing franchise.” (PC Gamer)

Spencer has also suggested that while¬†games like Halo Wars and Quantum Break are well suited to PC, something like Just Dance isn’t. Citing the recently announced Forza Apex, he also said that other games would have to be altered for Windows 10. This does make a lot of sense. Should be interesting to see what happens in the next few years.
