Microsoft thinks The Outer Worlds could be ‘an enduring franchise’

"With something like Minecraft, I think it was a no-brainer that we were never going to try and take anything from players that existed on those platforms, and certainly we've added platforms since that acquisition", said Booty.

Microsoft could be targeting actual 4K 60FPS for games on Project Scarlett.

While Microsoft may not be answering these questions quite yet, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has spilled some details on the company's main aims for Xbox Project Scarlett during an interview with Gamespot. Maybe, but first-party games will benefit most as devs closer to Microsoft have more time to eke out more power and use interesting tools and tricks to make it happen.

Remember Turn10 was able to hit native 4K 60FPS in Forza 7 while using 70% of the Xbox One X's GPU-a GPU that's 4 times weaker then Scarlett. Microsoft has Halo and Gears of War. However, that doesn't appear to be the case, and Spencer said Microsoft is focused on smartphones, at least for now, as the primary outlet for streaming. This hints at variable modes for Scarlett, which was actually obvious from the start.

"Craig and I had a conversation and we loved their energy...", Booty said. "We want to respect the games that you've bought from us". How fast do games load? Making sure that all four generations of content-so the original Xbox games that run on your Xbox One today, the OG Xbox; the 360 games that run on your Xbox One; your Xbox One games; and the new generation games-all run on the next platform is important to us. The Xbox head explained that it is targeting concerns such as getting the game to load as fast as possible while it's playing, as well as putting a lot of consideration into how it looks and feels to play. Upgrading to a brand new console is usually a headache - restrictions on backward compatibility and cross-gen gaming mean gamers lose out on their previous gaming investments, and even put off buying a newer console due to all of the mucking around involved.

There's still a long way to go before Project Scarlett is here, as Microsoft isn't planning to launch it until late 2020.
