Xbox manager Phil Spencer has actually described several of the believing behind the current Starfield delay, calling the step “the right thing to do.”

Chatting with The Verge (opens up in brand-new tab) (joys, PC Gamer (opens up in brand-new tab)), Spencer claimed the choice (he refutes calling it ‘a choice’) to postpone Starfield was made partially since Xbox has actually launched games too soon in the past. 

“It isn’t really a decision to move a game after spending the team’s effort over multiple years just to get to a point where you know you’re not going to deliver the game you want on the date that was promised,” Spencer claimed. “Now, it is at some level, because I have shipped games too early. We have experienced shipping games too early.”

Spencer can be describing any type of variety of games one could suggest were delivered a little prematurely, Halo Infinite being one of the most current instance, however it seems like he does not mean to duplicate his errors with Starfield.

“In hindsight, when you look at a game like Starfield, it’s taken so long and so much investment in new IP from the team,” he claimed. “The decision to give the team the time to build the game that they feel they should be building is just the right thing to do.”

“There are financial implications to those decisions. Weighing what is going to happen, whether it’s platform growth, subscriber growth, or frankly, the revenue that you generate when a new game launches, those are business decisions. You definitely have to weigh the outcome of those decisions.”

Spencer’s remarks concerning delaying Starfield could not be extra prompt. Just a couple of days back, fans were mourning what was originally Starfield’s November 11 release date.
