Xbox's Phil Spencer Issues Statement In Response To Starfield And Redfall Delays

Head of Xbox and Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer has taken to Twitter today to comment on the unfortunate delays of Bethesda's Starfield and Redfall to 2023, admitting that Xbox needs to "better meet" certain expectations.

In his message, Spencer supported the decision to give the development teams more time on both games, but also acknowledged that "delivering quality and consistency is expected," and promised to work harder in this area:

Of course, Spencer had an even bigger issue on his hands with the delay of Halo Infinite back in 2020, which was originally meant to launch alongside the Xbox Series X and S, but ended up being pushed back an entire year.

Today's news is a disappointing blow without a doubt, but it's at least comforting to see that Spencer is taking the feedback on board. Let's hope the extra wait for these games allows the dev teams to create something truly special.
