Mixer's closure is “a disappointment” but Xbox head Phil Spencer says he has no regrets about the streaming service.
Spencer told GamesIndustry:
Mixer will officially shut its doors today, July 22. Already, its users have been pushed to Facebook Gaming.It’s obviously a disappointment when you try to grow something to the scale it needs to get to and you don’t get there. I don’t have regrets. You make decisions with the best information you have at the time, you apply your best effort, and we’re in a creative industry. We are in a hits-driven industry. And if we get into this space that we get afraid of disappointment that we won’t achieve what we’re trying to achieve as an organisation… I think it’s fundamental to us that we’re not afraid of trying things that might not work. And that is just the art of making video games, and frankly game platforms.
