Starfield postponed? For Phil Spencer Xbox “must do better”

After the postponement of Starfield and RedFall, the community and Xbox fans have split in two. More or less everyone is in favor of postponements, especially if the extra time will be needed by Bethesda and Arkane in order to better optimize the gaming experience and make it free of bug game breaking and crashes. However, there is a very common feeling among those who have decided a Microsoft platform or subscribed to Xbox Game Pass for this generation: the absence of exclusive weight for 2022.

Spencer entrusted his thoughts to Twitter. “These decisions are always difficult for teams and fans to make. I support the idea of ​​moving the release dates and releasing the games when they are ready but I also listen to your feedback,” the words of the CEO of Microsoft Gaming. “Being able to publish quality products more and more frequently is something you expect, so we will continue to work towards your expectations.”

We repeat, as we did yesterday and above all how we will do in the coming months, when other games will be postponed: the development teams must necessarily take extra months if necessary to be able to distribute a complete and functional game from every point of view. Spencer’s words, however, make us reflect on the management of internal teams and how they have not yet managed, with some exceptions, to produce games to be included in Xbox Game Pass and published for Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. The problem is not new and we had already mentioned it here, when some rumors wanted The Initiative (working on the Perfect Dark reboot) to almost navigate by sight.

These decisions are hard on teams making the games & our fans. While I fully support giving teams time to release these great games when they are ready, we hear the feedback. Delivering quality & consistency is expected, we will continue to work to better meet those expectations.
