Earlier last week, Microsoft decided to end the hype surrounding Project Scorpio as it gave Digital Foundry detailed specifications for its upcoming console. However, we won’t be seeing complete console as Microsoft Studios Chief Phil Spencer confirmed that the console will be unveiled completely during events in E3.
During a recent interview, he hinted that Scorpio will most likely remain multi-generational. Talking to Gamasutra, he said, “when we thought about our tools, I said okay, games are going to live longer than we’re used to them living on our platform.”
“Which means from the service capability and monetization standpoint, we’ve got to go build tools so that they can continue to give content and services and other things to the customers. Seeing games like Destiny get born this generation makes a ton of sense.”
Although Destiny had a solid performance, it was largely due to Bungie’s reputation for making Halo and it seems that Microsoft is pushing to make the upcoming sequel Scorpio’s flagship product. Talking about the upcoming release, he said, “From the makers of the acclaimed hit game Destiny, comes the much-anticipated sequel. An action shooter that takes you on an epic journey across the solar system.
“Humanity’s last safe city has fallen to an overwhelming invasion force led by Ghaul, the imposing commander of the brutal Red Legion.”
“He has stripped the city’s Guardians of their power, and forced the survivors to flee.”
“You will venture to mysterious, unexplored worlds of our solar system to discover an arsenal of weapons and devastating new combat abilities.”
“To defeat the Red Legion and confront Ghaul, you must reunite humanity’s scattered heroes, stand together, and fight back to reclaim our home.”
Whether Destiny 2 brings in similar success or not is remain to be seen but, given the console itself boasts exemplary configuration, it’s more than likely that we will see more high performing games in future built for Scorpio.
