The general thought among the group is that Microsoft is taking a lot of risks with Xbox originals and the projects under it. Companies like NetFlix, Amazon, etc took quite a bit of time after their first game to launch into the world of Television. Standing at the same point, Xbox Originals is looking forward to at least 7 to 8 premiers.
According to the schedule released by Microsoft, there will be another launch the same month ‘Every Street United’, a show based on Football hosed by Thierry Henry and Edgar Davids. Apart from this there are many more projects that Xbox Originals is looking forward to. The x factor in this schedule is that not a single thing is similar to the other. In the list of premieres, there will be music, sports, action, comedy, drama, etc. The viewers will be eagerly waiting for the directorial stint of Spielberg: Halo Series.
Nancy Tellem, President of Xbox Entertainment Studios said in the statement:
“We are developing premium, original content for the Xbox community which is an audience we are incredibly respectful of. We believe Xbox Originals should embrace the way our fans think about traditional TV.”
The people will be eagerly waiting to see what Xbox originals unfolds and how much run for the money is given to NetFlix, which is he present leader in this market.
