Last week, we reported that 70 Enhanced titles would come to the Xbox One X in its first week. Following a successful launch yesterday, the number already sits at 50, but there's an elephant in the room. It could have been more. Microsoft-published titles, while significant, have been plagued with issues. The biggest blow came with the cancellation of Scalebound, for which the reasoning remains vague. The anticipated Crackdown 3 was then pushed back to 2018, all after promising an ‘exciting year of exclusives'. None of it was good news for fans, and Xbox head Phil Spencer has now addressed that. “We need to grow, and I look forward to doing that,” he told Bloomberg on Monday. “Our ability to go create content has to be one of our strengths. We haven't always invested at the same level. We've gone through ups and downs in the investment.”
