Matt Booty: Microsoft wants to turn The Outer Worlds into a great franchise
During an interview with the US magazine Game Informer, in fact, the head of Xbox studios Matt Booty explained, confirming among other things that there are currently numerous games not yet announced in development among the various studios of the house of Redmond, who sees The Outer Worlds as a great opportunity to build a great franchise that can also embrace different media.
Booty compared the Obsidian franchise to the Haloseries, explaining that he hopes that the software house will be able, after the launch of the game, to turn it into an IP capable of embracing novels, comics and television, and obviously releasing a series of sequels that would, in all likelihood, be exclusive to Xbox.
So far The Outer Worlds has proven to be a very interesting title despite being developed with the relatively limited resources of Private Division (which, we remember, is a Take-Two Interactive label dedicated to independent productions); With Microsoft's resources, however, it could become a series that can rival the big sci-fi RPG sagas like Fallout and Mass Effect. Are they going to make it? We hope so!
