Family Sharing could come back to Xbox One
Microsoft’s Xbox corporate VP Marc Whitten knows that the Xbox One explanations have been hazy to the public.
However, he is trying to clear the water. While speaking to IGN, Whitten said that some features the community liked about the original Xbox One announcement may make a return, such as Family Sharing.
“If [Family Sharing] is something that people are really excited about and want, we’re going to make sure that we find the right way to bring it back,” he said.
He noted that some extra engineering would be needed to make it possible without being always online, and that’s the reason it won’t be available for the launch.
Whitten said the company has “learned a lot of lessons” since the reveal of the console, and he wants to be more engaged with gamers leading up to launch.
“I think it’s the number one thing I’d want to do if I went back, was have the conversation more open and more complete,” he said.
