Xbox's problems in Europe: sellers and publishers lose interest in the platform, "most" exclusives come out on PS5

Xbox's problems in Europe: sellers and publishers lose interest in the platform, "most" exclusives come out on PS5

It looks like there are storm clouds gathering over the direction of Microsoft's Xbox business. According to GameIndustry, Xbox Series X/S in Europe is not receiving adequate support from the gaming industry. This is evident from conversations with a "very well-known" publisher and the indie community.

The first signs of concern appeared last year when some European retailers refused to carry Xbox Series X/S at all. But this year things have gotten even worse, to the point where publishers are starting to doubt whether it's worth continuing to support Xbox.

These concerns do not stop there. According to the source, "most" Xbox exclusives will eventually make their way to the PS5, and less attention is being paid to Game Pass, the popularity of which remains largely unchanged. While these reports should be viewed with skepticism, GameIndustry has established itself as a reliable source of gaming industry news.

Last month, Microsoft tried to alleviate concerns with an Xbox Business update, in which they showed that some older, smaller-scale games have become multiplatform, but others, like Starfield, are not yet. Additionally, the company promised to continue work on new hardware that is expected to provide the "biggest technical leap in history."

While Microsoft may be planning to release a new powerful console, without support from developers, it will not be of much significance. If publishers lose interest in putting their games on the platform, it will lead to a lack of compelling content and a decrease in consumer interest. This is exactly what happened with Sega, which was later forced to abandon hardware.
