First-Party Studios Unlikely to Focus on Xbox Battle Royale

Xbox Battle Royale

The idea of an Xbox battle royale game being developed by a first-party studio isn’t a ridiculous idea, as everyone seems to be wanting a slice of that BR pie. However, in a tweet response to a fan, Xbox boss Phil Spencer stated that “unless [Xbox] finds something special in [first-person] that’s a different take,” an Xbox battle royale title is unlikely to happen.

Of course, that’s not a complete “no,” and it’s possible that Xbox first-party studios may start working on a more unique take on the genre.

In other Xbox news, May’s Games With Gold titles have been revealed. Check them out here. Also, new Xbox Game Pass titles have been announced for release in May.
