Microsoft May Shift Fall 2015 Releases

Microsoft is already looking at a great lineup of games to come in 2015, particularly during the Fall, what is normally a busy time of year for video game releases.  But looking ahead to next year, the company has said they might consider shifting some release dates given the current circumstances.

Microsoft’s Phil Spencer explained these difficulties, addressing concerns that they might not be able to ship everything current on their slate for next Fall, partly because there’s already so much on the docket.  “I mean, this Fall from a first-party/third-party standpoint is great,” Spencer said.  “Next Fall, I don’t…  Honestly, it’s not hype at all, I honestly don’t know we can actually ship all the stuff that think it’s trying to ship next Fall.  It might just be too crowded and we might purposely try to move some things out to spread it.”

Given that Fall is a popular release window due to its proximity to the holiday rush, these kinds of crowded launches aren’t a surprise.  And at present, we already know of Halo 5: Guardians, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Quantum Break, a new Crackdown, and Scalebound, all of which are due out next year, more than one already planned for a Fall release.

About the possibility of spreading out more releases, Spencer added, “I think as publishers and first parties have success at multiple points of the year it’s just a good thing for us, because having three/four great games ship all in the same week at the end of October, while maybe on some forecast somewhere it feels like that’s the right thing to do, just as an industry I think it’s much more healthy if we have more beats throughout the year where people can ship great games.”
