Phil Spencer on Redfall fiasco: 'Takes full responsibility'



Want to ensure the quality of the company's games.

After the low ratings for Redfall, "disappointment" is a recurring word when Phil Spencer joins us to talk about the game in Kinda Funny Games' video call. The Xbox boss says he understands buyers' disappointment and feels the same way.

One of the issues touched on is that the game only runs at 30 frames per second on both Xbox consoles - that is, even on the more powerful Xbox Series X. 60 fps support will be patched in later, but Spencer doesn't insist that it should have been there there at release.

Spencer says he doesn't want to poke at developers' creative ambitions. However, he sees it as his task to ensure quality and completion. In the roughly 40-minute long broadcast (watch in full above, or heavily shortened below), he also says that he takes full responsibility for the fact that $70 games have to be "great" when they're released. Which most people can agree that Redfall was not.
