Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella has reiterated that the company is interested in investing more and more resources in gaming, as a consequence of the satisfaction for the revenues of the Xbox division.
Nadella has offered this comment when talking to the investors, despite having already invested a lot in gaming with the acquisition of five studios as announced at the E3 2018 Xbox media briefing.
“In gaming, we’re pursuing our expansive opportunity from the way games are created and distributed, to how they’re played and viewed, surpassing ten billion revenue this year for the first time,” Nadella told the investors.
“We’re investing aggressively in content, community, and cloud services across every end-point to expand usage and deepen engagement with gamers,” he added.
As explained by Phil Spencer back at the E3, Microsoft is already developing new Xbox consoles – which rumors claim to be codenamed “Scarlett” – and a streaming service that will be revealed in a few years.
So, there’s definitely a lot of news on the way for the platform holder, in a moment where the company is not leading the market in terms of sales but has just left a bad situation that was created by the disappointing Xbox One launch in 2013.
