Xbox president swerves question about closing Hi-Fi Rush and Prey teams, says “success for each game and studio is really unique”

Microsoft shut down the widely admired studios behind Hi-Fi Rush and Prey earlier this week, but when asked about the closures, Xbox president Sarah Bond gave a nondescript response that success for each game “is really unique.”

During the Bloomberg Tech conference in San Francisco, Bond was questioned about why a successful game can’t ensure a team’s survival at the company. Tango Gameworks released the rhythm action joyride Hi-Fi Rush last year, scooped up several awards, and by Microsoft‘s own admission, created a “breakout hit” on all fronts. Tango was axed along with three other studios regardless.
