Just a day after Xbox announced the closure of four studios including the Hi-Fi RUSH developer Tango Gameworks, it's apparently touched on the importance of "smaller games" during its latest town hall meeting.

According to "internal remarks" shared with The Verge, Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty spoke about how at least one of the division's future goals was to deliver smaller titles that give the company "prestige and awards". This has reportedly come as a "surprising goal" considering the shutdown of the Hi-Fi Rush developer was only announced a day before this, and its latest release arguably matched this exact criteria.

Of course, we don't know the exact details behind the closure of Tango Gameworks. Perhaps the most notable change in its pattern was the departure of the studio's founder early last year and a port of Hi-Fi Rush on PlayStation 5 recently.

Apart from this, the same title was supposedly a "break out hit" when it originally launched on Game Pass - reaching millions of subscribers, and Tango Gameworks already had plans for a sequel. However, there are claims some new projects would have required more staff, which could have been a factor in the closures.

We'll likely be hearing more from this latest Xbox town hall event, so if there's anything else worth highlighting, we'll be sure to let you know.
