Phil Spencer Breaks down why Scalebound, Crackdown & Quantum Break Aren’t Coming to PC


Xbox boss Phil Spencer has detailed why Scalebound,  Crackdown 3 and Quantum Break won’t be coming to PC.

“In the case of things like Scalebound or Crackdown or Quantum Break, you know, just to be completely honest with you, we started those games before we really looked at expanding into Windows in the way that I wanted to bring as part of becoming head of Xbox.

“Going to those teams mid-cycle and saying: ‘Hey, by the way, I want to add a platform,’ didn’t really feel like necessarily the best way to end up with the best result for the game. They had a path that they were on. It’s not to say those games could never come to Windows, but right now we’re on the path to finish the great games that they’ve started, and I want that to be the case. These games are on a path, whereas with, like, Halo Wars 2 I had the opportunity from the beginning, when we’re sitting down with the studio, to say, ‘Here’s the target. Here’s what we wanna go do.’

    These games are made on a PC right? It is Microsoft, exclusivity only lasts as long as the next patch.

      not really any different than a ps4 exclusive at this point is it.

  • Ryuken13

    I cry bullshit. At least 1 if not all 3 will be on PC within a year or so..

    Microsoft has no idea WTF “EXCLUSIVE” means.. They are simply trying to push Xbone units..

    • Mythosa

      wow. the anger :p

      • Ryuken13

        No anger.. Simply calling a peach a peach.. Spencer is their photogenic mascot that will parrot whatever bullshit his superiors tell him to say..

    “Expanding into Windows in the way that I wanted to bring as part of becoming head of Xbox”- Phil Spencer you’ve done some great things since you became head of Xbox but it should’t be a question if the Xbox One exclusives are really exclusive, like it is now. Turning your exclusives into “timed console exclusives” is only going to hurt hardware sales of Xbox One. I hope these 3 games are going to stay true exclusives but the door was definitely left open for it to be “timed console exclusive”.

    And i though it was because they found a dictionary with the true meaning of exclusives.
