Microsoft has been making a big noise about linking the Xbox One withover the last few months, but several high-profile titles remain console exclusives for now.
Microsoft's head of Xboxisn't ruling out future PC versions of titles like Crackdown 3, Scalebound and Quantum Break, however.
"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," Spencer told PC Gamer.
"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.
Spencer says that a game likewas designed specifically for the PC and Xbox One, while bringing the upcoming Gears of War HD remake to PC, with its enhanced graphics and focus on multiplayer "felt like a great opportunity from the beginning."
"So I’m stating it again," concludes Spencer, "I’m kind of less in the broad sweep of, ‘Everything should be over here and over there,’ because I think in certain instances that might not be the right model, but I definitely want to build out our Windows games portfolio, and we’re making slow progress on that."
