According to the latest report from Windows Central’s Jez, Microsoft has also closed the department responsible for promoting Xbox games to physical retail stores this time. ” If you have seen the leaked news of the purely digital version of the Xbox game console, then you can understand Microsoft’s intentions .”
He also confirmed that a large number of community managers also lost their jobs. “It appears that Microsoft will be doing less community building for Xbox games in the future.”
Jez reminded netizens in a follow-up tweet: The above measures do not completely conclude that Microsoft will give up the retail sales of physical Xbox games. “They can outsource or integrate. So don’t think that these news mean that Xbox is withdrawing from the retail work of physical games .”
But he also said that (digitalization) seems to be the development trajectory of the industry, and this is a sure thing.
