Xbox Boss Claims More Steam Releases Are Coming

Phil Spencer has admitted that game releases on the Windows Store haven’t gone well and suggests that at least some of them will be heading to Steam. They should just abandon the Windows Store or severely overhaul it, but since neither is going to happen, I’ll take what I can get.

"I look at Steam today, it's on an incredible growth trajectory. It's a massive force in gaming; a positive force. I think it will be bigger a year from now than it is today. And five years later it will still be bigger again," he said. "I look at Valve as an important [independent software vendor] for us on Windows. They are a critical part of gaming's success on Windows. I don't think Valve's hurt by not having our first-party games in their store right now. They're doing incredible well. We will ship games on Steam again."
