Phil Spencer: Xbox Game Pass can drive single-player games

Unintended consequences?

Xbox head Phil Spencer believes the Xbox Game Pass subscription program could provide opportunities for single-player titles.

Spencer took to Twitter to make the claim, answering questions asked by an eager fan.

“The idea of a new model that could open up opportunities for creativity is where I think we’ll end up,” Spencer wrote. “Especially for SP games.”

Spencer also stressed that while Microsoft will lead the way with Xbox Game Pass, he’s very receptive to third-parties adding their own day one content.

Xbox Game Pass is a subscription-based program that offers up a library of over 100 titles for around $10 AUD a month. Microsoft recently announced that its new releases, titles like Sea of Thieves, Crackdown 3 and State of Decay 2, will be in the program at their respective releases.

What do you make of Spencer’s claim?
