Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, has ignited speculation with a cryptic post about a pivotal event next week. This highly anticipated reveal promises to unveil Microsoft’s vision for the future of Xbox. Industry speculations swirl around a potential departure from the company’s traditional emphasis on exclusivity.

“We’re listening and we hear you,” Spencer said in a post on X (formerly known as Twitter). “We’ve been planning a business update event for next week, where we look forward to sharing more details with you about our vision for the future of Xbox.”

Coming to the titles, Starfield is one of the biggest Bethesda game launch, which exclusively released on Xbox and PCs.

With Spencer’s penchant for bold moves, one thing’s certain: next week’s reveal promises to be a watershed moment, potentially reshaping the very landscape of the gaming world.
