We know that we still

community with the investments we’re making. We have never been in a better
position as an organization to deliver for PC gamers, with Xbox Game Studios and
Bethesda developing content for both PC and Xbox, the Windows and DirectX teams
creating technologies that empower developers and provide PC players with
features that specifically take advantage of PC hardware, Xbox Game Pass for PC
featuring games for every type of PC gamer with Xbox Game Studio games coming on
day one, and the ongoing evolution of the Xbox app and Xbox Game Bar. We’ll
continue listening to the community to ensure we’re delivering on our promises,
and respecting how players choose to play. This is especially true as we head
into the second half of 2021, when our work across the entire PC ecosystem has
the potential to come together in a way that propels the industry forward and
brings great games to more gamers around the world.
