“We need to make smaller games,” Booty says the day after Tango Gameworks shut down.

On Tuesday, Microsoft abruptly announced to employees that it was closing four studios, with perhaps the biggest surprise coming from Japanese company Tango Gameworks, creators of The Evil Within series, the haunting GhostWire: Tokyo and last year’s rhythm action game Hi-Fi Rush. The last mentioned game was a huge success with both reviewers and players and won a number of awards, including the award for Best Sound Design at the prestigious The Game Awards.

Early this morning, The Verge magazine reported that the head of Xbox Game Studios, Matt Booty, held a meeting with developers, where he presented plans and goals for the future. However, this has somewhat puzzled some developers.

“We need smaller games to give us prestige and recognition,” Booty said. This is exactly the same game as Hi-Fi Rush from Tango, which was closed the day before. The truth is that Hi-Fi Rush has been in development for about 5 years now, but it is definitely a smaller game than most of Microsoft’s studio products.

Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly how successful he was from a financial point of view. However, last April, Xbox Marketing Director Aaron Greenberg he declaredthat it was a great success in every possible way and they are very happy with Tan. Obviously, the excitement did not last long.

So Booty’s facial expression seems quite strange, and in the screenshot from Hi-Fi Rush he looks funny. he replied and the game’s creative director, John Johannas.

It’s hard to say what smaller games await us and who will make them. In any case, we will learn about Xbox’s plans next month at a big showcase, which will take place on June 9.
