Today was a big day for Microsoft at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco where the head of Xbox Phil Spencer confirmed that Microsoft is working to bring Xbox games the futuristic HoloLens headset introduced earlier this year at the Windows 10 event.
“Gaming and entertainment is going to be critical, to introducing consumers to such a radically new experience” said Spencer. He also revealed that Microsoft-owned development studios are actively working on bringing captivating gaming experiences that go beyond what the company demonstrated at their January Windows 10 event. Spencer also noted that eventually, the doors will open to 3rd party developers.
Microsoft posted a press release today, affirming what Spencer said at the event, saying:
“While there are going to be many uses and industries that take advantage of Microsoft HoloLens and everything that holographic computing has to offer, gaming is a huge opportunity.”
The Redmond software giant believes in their futuristic holographic computing technology and is investing a lot of time and money into making it as perfect as it can be before it’s released to the public. It will be rather interesting to see how this vision of re-invented augmented reality plays out. Having 3rd party developers on board will be crucial to its success weather it’s for gaming or any other purpose.
