Xbox Studios General Manager Shannon Loftis doesn’t understand the claims that Microsoft, and the Xbox One, doesn’t have a strong exclusive line up.
In an interview with Game Informer, Loftis said:
“In terms of exclusives, I’ve heard that rumor and I’m a little bit confused because we have a really good lineup this holiday. We’ve got the most popular game on the planet in PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – the Xbox console is going to be the only place where you can play that. We also have Forza Motorsport 7, which every single year reinvents the racing genre and basically owns racing in the video games industry.”
It’s true that players hardly struggle for amazing experiences, and Loftis was quick to point out the list of updated games for the upcoming Xbox One X: games like Halo 5, Dead Rising 4, Forza Horizon 3, and Gears of War 4 are all to receive updates.
Loftis was asked if the line up of enhanced titles was strong enough, and she had this to say:
“I think it’s an incredibly strong lineup, especially when you take into account the fact that all of the 100 plus enhancements that we’ve already seen are free to gamers that already own the games, and the backward compatibility program, the continuing exclusives, and the fact that all the blockbusters, like Destiny  and Star Wars Battlefront II, are just going to run way better on Xbox One.”
The Xbox One X launches on November 7.
