Report: Phil Spencer says Xbox will still make consoles

Xbox boss is said to have clarified that hardware will continue to be part of the firm's strategy

Xbox head Phil Spencer reportedly told employees that Microsoft isn't planning to stop making consoles.

Games journalist Shannon Liao shared in her weekly industry newsletter on Substack on Friday that Xbox allegedly held an internal company townhall last Tuesday, during which Spencer clarified that Xboxes would continue to be part of the company's strategy alongside other devices.
