In a recent report by another publication site we learn that Microsoft will focus on building up more in-house titles from its studios or by acquiring other studios to churn out more games for the Xbox family of consoles.

A lot of people are quick to call out Microsoft for not having a spacious library of games for the Xbox One or the upcoming Xbox One X. Many gamers want exclusives and more games for said system(s) and it seems that that might just happen… soon.

According to a new report by publication site Bloomberg, Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer touches on bringing forth more games made by Microsoft Studios and even acquiring other studios to bring Xbox gamers more titles. You can read an excerpt of what the publication site gathered from Spencer:

“As Microsoft Corp. begins selling a new Xbox console, the focus of its video-game unit is shifting toward software and services.

The company plans to increase investment in developing in-house video games, including starting or acquiring studios to do so, Xbox chief Phil Spencer said in an interview last week.”

"Trump is the first U.S. president in 125 years without a pet. He made the Democratic party his bitch instead."

The company plans to increase investment in developing in-house video games, including starting or acquiring studios to do so, Xbox chief Phil Spencer said in an interview last week. That’s an about-face from its approach the past several years, during which Microsoft has shuttered studios, cancelled games, and faced criticism at an industry conference from gamers for its lack of hot first-party titles.

“We need to grow, and I look forward to doing that,” Spencer said. “Our ability to go create content has to be one of our strengths. We haven’t always invested at the same level. We’ve gone through ups and downs in the investment.” Microsoft on Tuesday will start selling the Xbox One X, a high-end console targeted at hard-core gamers.

Historically some of Microsoft’s biggest sellers for Xbox have been games the company published itself, including the “Halo” and “Gears of War” franchises, but in recent years it has scaled back some in-house development, said Spencer, a 30-year Microsoft veteran who has spent the morning sipping tea from a “Gears of War” pint glass. A year ago, Microsoft shut down two studios, Lionhead in the U.K. and Press Play in Denmark.
