Microsoft To Discuss Future Of Xbox Amid PS5 Rumors This Wednesday

Microsoft will share “updates on the Xbox business” on February 15, the company has confirmed, in the wake of ongoing rumors and reports of Xbox shifting strategy to release games on competing platforms.

The event will take place this Wednesday as a podcast featuring Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer and other Xbox executives including Sarah Bond and Matt Booty. The podcast will air on YouTube and everywhere else podcasts are available, Microsoft said.

Reports have suggested tha Microsoft is considering bringing Gears of War, Starfield, Hi-Fi Rush, Sea of Thieves, and Indiana Jones and the Great Circle to PlayStation.

It recently came to light that Microsoft might be shifting focus and executing on a new strategy to bring some of its first-party games and franchises to rival platforms from Sony and Nintendo. Microsoft has not commented on these reports as of yet, so the podcast interview will surely be one to tune in for.

Looking ahead, The Coalition is reportedly now working on Gears 6. Outside of games, Microsoft and Netflix partnered for a Gears of War film and an animated series. Jon Spaihts, known for Dune, Doctor Strange, and Prometheus, is writing the script.
