Xbox Scarlett Exclusives Will Be Released Every 4 Months
The incoming console generation is becoming more and more visible by the week, with Microsoft making some of the biggest moves ahead of 2020. With an array of featureful services and considerable first-party studios established and at their disposal, the company’s next console, dubbed Xbox Scarlett, appears ready to offer a gaming experience unlike any before it. This includes exclusives, which have now been confirmed to release only four months apart.
In a recent interview with GamesRadar, head of Xbox Game Studios Matt Booty spoke about Microsoft’s plans heading into 2020 as well as the planned frequency to put out a new first-party release “every three to four months” at a time. “We’ve got a goal of being able to deliver a game, roughly, every three to four months,” he explained. “We have a little bit of work to do to get there. It’ll be lumpy, but we’re closer than we were. And so we feel really good going into 2020 – and the run-up to Project Scarlett – with our content line-up.”
Releasing several exclusives per year would surely be an exciting idea for fans, as it would address a percieved problem with the current Xbox One in that it lacks lack very many first-party games. With blockbuster exclusives such as Scalebound being cancelled and Gears 5 arriving late in the Xbox One’s life cycle, a steady output of Scarlett-only games would undoubtedly show off the platform’s value. As Xbox has acquired several big developers over the last year, next-gen will likely have have no shortage of worthwhile titles.
