Gamers are Xbox Project Scarlett’s first priority

Speaking to Game Informer, Xbox Game Studios boss Mike Booty said: "From what we've seen of The Outer Worlds, my hope is that that's something we can build and that it really becomes an enduring franchise and it really starts to grow and we can help expand that". This news along with Microsoft's growing leniency of cross-platform play shows that Xbox is giving gamers more freedom to play without restrictions.

Also in the interview, Booty shared some insight into one of the reasons why why Microsoft acquired Obsidian-the company sees a bright future for The Outer Worlds.

"Another thing that will be a little bit new for us is the fact that we want to also respect the compatibility of the controllers that you already have". It's still early days for video game streaming, and Microsoft probably doesn't want to repeat the bad Xbox One launch from 2013 when an excessive focus on Kinect and TV features disappointed gamers looking for a traditional gaming console.

This is not the case for all of the first-party titles, with Minecraft famously being the exception. While major triple A games like Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto are available across platform, console makers can attract users by having a good array of exclusives. Nintendo has Mario and Zelda.

Microsoft isn't just looking toward the future with Project Scarlett, either; the company also wants to ensure that players still have access to all of their older games as we move into a new generation of consoles. Franchises such as Forza, Halo, and Sea of Thieves, he explained, are designed from the outset to stay exclusive to the Xbox ecosystem, however.

Microsoft has been dropping generous hints about its next-gen Xbox and now head of the division Phil Spencer has doled out more information about the anticipated gaming console.In an interview with Gamespot, Spencer revealed that Microsoft's focus for its next Xbox console, codenamed Project Scarlett, is on frame rate and playability.

"I think we would". Not every game should be mandated for 4K performance (Microsoft would be foolish to mandate resolution, as not every dev can handle that kind of load) but the games that do play in 4K may all hit 4K 60FPS.
