Phil Spencer Wants Xbox To Invest In More 'Social, Casual Content'

Xbox boss Phil Spencer has been speaking as part of an interview at the Paley International Council Summit this week, and as reported by Bloomberg, he made some comments about wanting to invest in more "social, casual content".

Spencer namedropped the likes of Minecraft, Roblox, FIFA and Fortnite while discussing this, before going on to explain that Microsoft has "a lot of ambition" in focusing on "more social, casual content that's out there."

“When I think about the kinds of genres that are usually associated with Xbox, yes, we have Roblox, we have Minecraft, we have FIFA and Fortnite, but we want to continue to invest in more social, casual content that’s out there. We have a lot of ambition.”

This isn't the first time Spencer has made comments along these lines, with his most recent mention arriving back in July when he told IGN's Unlocked podcast that he believes there's an "opportunity" in Xbox's portfolio for "more family-friendly content".

It seems the Xbox boss is very keen on pursuing this, so it'll be interesting to see the results in a few years' time.
