Phil Spencer asked fans to respect the creators of the sacrificing platform without releasing them.
Spencer recently received a Lifetime Achievement Award in DICE 2022. In a speech called The Toxic Environments in the Gaming Industry, Spencer chatted to IGN about his greatest accomplishment, his hopes for the next decade and the social connections that bring so many.
Spencer was interested in voicing his wish that players would rather use reserved creators as ammunition. “I think that’s very often that creations can be used in battles between platforms and other things,” Spencer said.
“I look at everybody’s brave enough to create something, put it out… they have their peers, the industry, the players, the play, the analytics and the talk about what they do,” said Spencer.
“Let’s just celebrate that so many great games come out of many creators’ hearts and find the foundation for this industry.”
In his acceptance speech, Spencer reiterated his desire to see improvements in the gaming industry, notably when it comes to workplace toxicity. “We have a responsibility to everyone in this business. We have a responsible society. We are responsible for ourselves.
Our responsibility is simple. Do all we can to protect the dignity and respect of loss from the entire industry.
The words come from Laura Miele, the assistant EA.
Miele addressed the situation in the industry, not the “rough headlines” out there.
“We must have a fair, safe work environment at the least.” This is just basic table stacks ”, said Miele.
