During a recent response spree on Twitter, Xbox head Phil Spencer was asked if Microsoft has considered developing their own Battle Royale game to compete with Fortnite and PUBG. Spencer replied:
“Millions are playing BR games right now. I don’t want to just build one because others have built them. FNBR is massive, PUBG is huge, new BR variants being built by some very quality devs, I’d rather support unless we find something special in 1P that’s a different take.”
This doesn’t rule out that it could be added to already established franchises such as Halo or Gears of War.
