Xbox Series X/S in short supply until April
Xbox CFO Tim Stuart expects Xbox Series X/S shortages to continue until April 2021, and Phil Spencer wants Bethesda to put Xbox first in their future projects.
Xbox Series X and S consoles will only be sporadically available until April next year, when Microsoft's capacity for producing consoles will finally catch up with demand. “That’s when I expect to see really that demand profile start to be met, which will be really, really great.” said Stuart. Amazon has already warned that they will be unable to meet demand ahead of the holidays.
Xbox first: Xbox big cheese Phil Spencer has talked about his expectations from future Bethesda projects now that the company is part of Xbox Game Studios. They won't be pulling any content from Sony or Nintendo platforms, but the Xbox platform will be the number one priority from now on.
Game Pass: “We want that content, in the long run, to be either first or better or best or pick your differentiated experience, on our platforms,” explained Spencer. “If it shows up best in Game Pass, that’s what we want to see,” suggesting that Microsoft acquired ZeniMax Media to bolster the Xbox Game Pass catalogue.
