Xbox’s Head of Department, Phil Spencer has commented on the recently revealed Hololens demo of Young Conker and what it means for the future of the franchise on Xbox One. He also stated that he expects Windows 10 games to start coming to Xbox One after the major update last year.

Phil Spencer was communicating with fans on Twitter after some of them expressed their disappointment over seeing the return of Conker in a virtual reality HoloLens demo. He assured that this was just a technical demo by the development team to see the potential of virtual reality and it doesn’t really mean the franchise is in any danger of not getting an actual game on the Xbox One.



Spencer then reiterated what he has said in the past that he has seen a lot of passion from fans for the return of some of the RARE franchise, and he holds the same passion for them. We learn that Spencer actually owns the original Nintendo 64 version of the game and that’s how he was introduced to the series.

He clarified that the Windows 10 and Xbox event was just for the Spring games lineup and it won’t have any major new announcements so keep your expectations in check.

He also called the Early Access program a success on the Xbox One.

Lastly Phil Spencer wasn’t shy of praising their competitor’s game and said that he was excited for the upcoming Unhcarted 4: A Thief’s End from Naughty Dog. He also praised the story of the upcoming Quantum Break.
