Xbox boss Phil Spencer has indicated in an interview that Microsoft could continue to take on further developer studios in the future in order to further expand the range of Xbox Game Studios. In the past two years, seven teams have joined, which will work exclusively for Microsoft in the future. These included studios such as Ninja Theory, Obsidian Entertainment and Double Fine.
"We are always out there and talking to people. But it has to be the right opportunity. (…) There are no signals that this would slow everything down – it just has to be at a pace that we consider to be leading team is justifiable. "
Phil Spencer is also said to receive a lot of support from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and CFO Amy Hood when it comes to taking over new studios. Nevertheless, it is important to the Xbox boss that the partner studios first feel at home.
"We took over some new studios in a short time and we want to make sure that these studios are recorded in the right way. I've already talked to Matt about it, we just want to make sure that we have these new studios as a full one See part of the organization. That they feel supported. "
Rumors have recently emerged that Microsoft may be interested in taking over Warner Bros. Interactive. This would make teams like Rocksteady or NetherRealm Studios part of the Xbox Game Studios group.
