Spencer said he has been dazzled by The Game Awards maker Geoff Keighley’s procedure and vision that has generated a can’t-miss occasion that draws a large number of watchers every year. In that capacity, Spencer came around to reporting the Xbox Series X during another person’s occasion. Truly, Microsoft has reported new consoles during its own news briefings so it can control the informing all the more straightforwardly.
Notwithstanding the Xbox Series X, Microsoft reported Hellblade 2 during The Game Awards. The trailers for the game and the support “played well,” Spencer said.

I’m really happy with the way it played out and the response from the fans,” he said of the Xbox Series X reveal during The Game Awards. “But every decision we make between now and launch, we’re trying to think about things in a different way. Some of them we’ll get right. Some of them we won’t. But we’re definitely not going to be meek. We’re going to bold in what we’re trying to go do.”
