Phil Spencer revealed that he recently spoke with Marty Stratton, executive producer at id Software, to discuss the future projects
guess what! Doomguy gets a reflective helmet visor and becomes Halo MC ....new games are coming to Xbox
Well, they've been doing well with Doom, so they'll probably just stick with that. Maybe even surprise people and reboot Quake. Can't wait to see what's coming. Try not to be too upset, being you can't help but crap on the companies you don't like, and these games are likely staying only within that company's ecosystem.
my comment was sarcastic lol...i mean they dont want to make nohting else except HALO ...and will transform even Doomguy to MC
A Quake reboot would be interesting!
"and these games are likely staying only within that company's ecosystem" Hum...say what? Hold on a sec, shouldn't you, of all people, be seriously disgruntled by the idea of those games remaining on Xbox? Remember your "they're spoiled little brats who don't like sharing their toys" (or something to that effect) narrative about some Sony fans expressing concern over Sony's decision to port PS4 titles to PC? I don't know who that Ted Cruz guy is, only that he's some politician in the US, but I think I know the reason of that smirk on his face right there, that's because your avatar has successfully rubbed off on you enough that you can make the same kind of laughably all-out hypocritical comment those people usually are known for without having second thoughts about it, LOL
I don't think it will happen, but I so would enjoy a new Commander Keen game and it not be a cell phone game. I'd say look at what the new Ratchet & Clank game did, but with a Commander Keen spin instead.
I mean, i would hope so as their owner...
I didn't know Phil bought them himself?! 😛
Actually they were supposed to make a Quake 5 years but the last time they mentioned it was around 10 years ago.
Don't want a Quake 5. Hate the Strogg storyline. Gothic Quake I is the actual Quake. Quake II wasn't even supposed to be called Quake. Need a Gothic quake reboot a la Doom'16 style.
could there possibly be a more obvious title. i mean what next? Phil Spencer uses the toilet at least once a day. they own them now, of course they speak about future projects.
Hugo Martin streams Doom Eternal every week and pretty much says they're working on the new Doom.
Ok I guess this passes as new now a days. Ms owns ID and by now they most likely had many conversations about future projects. But we don't need articles telling us what we already know. It's like saying Sony discussed future projects with ND well DUH
Team Microsoft is having a meeting. Alert the news reporters and sound the horns! This will be glorious! 🤣🤣
Bringing quake champions to a new Id tech engine would be awesome maybe with ms backing it and crossplay it will be a but bigger than last time
Phil: "Hey guys! I have some really cutting edge ideas for your next Xbox games! Try to develop a 1st Person Shooter with a huge focus on multiplayer! Yeah, and maybe introduce something like a Battlepass or something that encourages players to spend more money on the game they already have! Yeah, I think that will do really well! If it doesn't for some reason, we'll just make the base game free - or better yet, just put it on Gamepass! Also - consider another 1st person RPG! OR an isometric RPG...either way, these are what our metrics show gamers really want! I'm pretty sure they DON'T want single player story driven action/adventure games. I mean, if gamers DID want those kinda games, they'd probably buy a PS5 right? Like I said, our data really shows Xbox owners only want online multiplayer FPS games, RPGs and maybe a couple of driving/flight Sims. Kena Bridge of Spirits? Nah! Spider-Man? Nope! Ratchet and Clank, or Sunset Overdrive2? Xbox gamers don't want games with interesting art-style and uniquegameplay! They want FPS games where you don't have to see your character! Trust me guys - I know what gamers want because I'M a gamer too and well, the numbers speak for themselves!"
"Trust me guys I know what gamers want because I'M a gamer too" the fact that u generalized millions of gamers alone just makes u sound like a clown. that whole paragraph was fanboy nonsense u dont speak for anyone lets get that clear.
@Oeazy - you're the clown bro - I was sarcastically semi-quoting Phil Spencer. Maybe finish high school before you make stupid interpretations.
Wow, someone is salty lol
So what? Do we really need to know this?
No, not really
Are they banning other platforms from Doom, Wolfenstein, id tech, etc now?
I think most likely yes. Going forward, all new zenimax games will be Xbox exclusive as they want people to buy into the Xbox ecosystem. Its a shame to be honest, but that is business I guess.
"but that is business I guess" That's the problem, MS just like Apple, Google, and Amazon are allowed to buy up any industry they're in, you might get a few court cases but compared to the profits they make any financial punishment is inconsequential. MS has shown they have little interest in making games as we've seen since the last half of the 360 gen they gave up, so now they just take away what was already available, stick their middle finger up at gamers and say f**k you, you have no choice but to pay me to keep playing. Remember when you're a company as rich as MS you don't have to be the best you just need to buy enough of the market so others can't compete. If removing multiplatform publisher games from other platforms proves to be successful then this is just the start of games being taken away. As we know Apple, Amazon and Google are looking to bring out gaming services and they've also lost access to Bethesda titles so are we going to see more multiplatform publishers being bought and made exclusive just so these tax dodging tech giants can secure titles? Well that's down to the shareholders if they want to sell they will, but hey I guess its just business
@MrDead people were complaining when Microsoft had less exclusives. Now they complaining Microsoft has too many exclusives. To be honest, I’d rather have Microsoft buy gaming companies, instead of say google, Amazon, or Apple. Sony can’t afford to compete with them, and Microsoft is the only real gaming company that can compete. You should be happy about this and see it as a win.
Wow. It must be a slow news day. You mean MS ACTUALLY spoke with one of their 1st party studios about future projects?!? You don't say!! Film at eleven!
So the games don't even exist yet. looks like they'll be launching day one on the next gen Xbox in 4 years or so.
I played the original Quake for many, many years. It was the first proper online game. And with its open approach to mods, games like Team Fortress was made. It would be great if they made a PROPER sequel to the original Quake that would distinguish itself enough so it doesn't feel like a Doom spin-off
id desperately needs to buy back their freedom.
“Boss talks to employee about their work.” Cool 🤙
Oh man I would love to be a fly on the wall for this. Id must love explaining their plans to the overlord. Spoiler; they are making Doom 9 and he told them he doesn’t care but it is going to be given away on Gamepass
Phil Spencer and Ted Cruz spoke to John Carmack and something real happened.
No sh/t . What news . Wow I’m shocked . Who would have thought 💭
Corrected title: Phil Spencer told id Software what to do in their future projects
You've got to be kidding me... This is totally unheard of, head of Microsoft Studios discussing future plans with one of the studios he's in charge of? That's the next level, pulitzer worth gaming journalism breaking news story we all needed today.
I mean... one would imagine so.
the studio really needs to be renamed, it is NOT the original ID software team
