Phil Spencer Named Head of Xbox

Posted on Monday, March 31 @ 09:48:51 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Microsoft Studios' Phil Spencer will now serve as the new boss of the Xbox division, filling the shoes of Marc Whitten, who just recently departed the company.

"I will now be leading the Xbox, Xbox Live, and creative teams including Xbox Music, Xbox Video and Microsoft Studios as we deliver the next generation of games and entertainment," Spencer confirmed. "Combining these teams will strengthen the connection between some of the world’s most innovative creators and those building the Xbox itself." 

The new Xbox head went on to add:

I am incredibly proud of the talented Xbox employees around the world and believe, like they do, in the power of technology to bring games and entertainment to life across console, PC, tablet and mobile devices.

The growth of the Xbox community, with over 80 million Xbox owners around the world, is built on the foundation of exclusive franchises, new and original IP and the world’s most popular cross-platform games. Games and gamers have always been at the core of Xbox and the core of my work - and gaming will be our core as we take Xbox forward.

This past year has been a growth experience both for me and for the entire Xbox team.  We’ve taken feedback, made our products better and renewed our focus on what is most important, our customer.  Our mission is to build a world-class team, work hard to meet the high expectations of a passionate fan base, create the best games and entertainment and drive technical innovation. As we continue forward, this renewed focus and mission will be a foundational part of how I lead the Xbox program.

What do you think of Spencer's promotion? I for one believe this only spells good things for the future Xbox, as he's made his dedication to the gaming community readily apparent during his time at the company.
