MS's devs already said that they have almost total freedom now and that they get much more time if needed (which we already see with Forza Motorsport, Halo...)

MS also bought studios like Double Fine and they didn't buy a dev for what they achieved with Hellblade just for multiplayer.

Phil Spencer said that Game Pass will be important especially for SINGLE player games and you just say that Game Pass proves how it's all about multiplayer.

"Phil says Game pass is important for single player games.... "

"They bought the dev's behinde Hellblade"

And what happend? Ninja Theory first game, is a multiplayer online AA game called Bleeding Edge.

Also if Phil says Game pass is important for single player games.... how many single player focused games, have MS made that are currently on it?
My impression is that Xbox says one thing, but does another.

Your saying that my assumption that Gamepass is for cheap AA games with Online Multiplayer focus, GaaS type, is wrong...
Can you say why? other than "phil says".

Double Fine is doing "Psychonauts 2" currently,  but that was in the work before MS bought them.
Thats a single player game, but are you confident that there next game wont be a Online Focused game?

Why do you keep mentioning what happened in the past when we talk about the future? MS obviously released multiplayer games on Game Pass because they already released these games.

How has this anything to do with what their plans are with Game Pass? What they released right now wasn't really made with Game Pass in mind, do you understand that?

And sure, they will also release multiplayer games in the future, but they don't buy almost only devs specialized in single player games just for multiplayer content. If that was their plan, they would buy totally different devs.

And don't mention Bleeding Edge, you know how long Ninja Theory works on that, it's their wish to work on it and MS gives them the freedom to do so.
