Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz, Xbox head Phil Spencer talked more about Microsoft acquiring game studios as part of the Xbox Game Studios. In the interview, Spencer notes that he would like to add a studio from Japan as part of their growing studio lineup. Stating:

“I think it would be nice if we found an Asian studio, in particular a Japanese studio, to add [to our studios]. I liked it when we had some first-party capability in Japan. We have a small team there, but I think we can do more. That said, through our trips to Japan, I love having Phantasy Star back on our stage with Sega — I thought that was fantastic. Miyazaki-San, before with Dark Souls and now having Elden Ring on our stage… the Japanese creators have shown up more and more.”
