Microsoft is working on the games with new titles and targeting the communities with strong titles. According to the report, Shannon Loftis General Manager of Microsoft Studios Publishing talks with GamesIndustry and highlights the Microsoft plans regarding the gaming industry.
Right now we are very focused on games that bring people together, who form communities and find ways to self-express.
Microsoft recently working on the upcoming games such as Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3, State of Decay 2 and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is admirable with interesting titles. Moreover, the company is not only working for a single player, although the company is designing the games that combine the communities. Moreover, General manager says as:
No. There is a fun YouTube search that I like to do: ‘Reactions to people watching the Ori and the Will of The Wisps trailer’. It is a blast watching their reactions and seeing them crying, good crying, over the game. Even the ability to share a reaction to a story, or to share how something made you feel in that moment, that is a viable social mechanic. There will always be a need to tell these stories, like Ori or like Zelda. Zelda is an incredibly social game, and just because you are playing it by yourself, doesn’t mean that the entire world isn’t sharing your experience.
The fact that we have the ability to share screens, share commentary, and groups, and clubs on Xbox Live… those are ways to bring people together around a game that is more story orientated.
Games that build community… these are games that people come back to again and again. And they come back as much for the social experience as they do the gameplay. I actually think that is for the greater good of society. Things that bring people closer together as opposed to driving them apart. There are a lot of things driving people apart right now, and I’m proud to be part of an industry that does the opposite.
