Furthermore, the post published on the official blog confirmed some commitments made by Xbox towards gamers for the transition to the next generation of consoles and video games.

Here is also a part of the message of Phil Spencer, which you can find on Xbox Wire:
The future of gaming has never been so exciting and limitless. It is a future that you will explore on your own terms, without being limited by restrictive policies. Where your gaming experience won't be left behind and where you won't be limited by the inability to try the new Xbox Game Studios exclusive games, even if you choose to stick with your current console for a while. It's a future where you and your friends will play the most engaging, responsive, and vibrant games together across all available screens, and where games will reach the world and offer you stories you've never experienced before. It's a future where you get more value from your games. And where everyone is welcome. We hope you'll join us next Thursday, July 23 for the Xbox Games Showcase for your first look at Halo Infinite and the other upcoming releases.
