Former Microsoft Executive Predicted Death of Big Publishers

Ed Fries, an ex Microsoft chief and father of the Xbox, explained that the days of big publishers are coming to an end. He admitted that he was both surprised and impressed with the company’s policy reversal on allowing self-publishing on Xbox One.


Ed Fries claimed that such moves can mean that Microsoft has come to a conclusion that the days of big publishers are coming to an end. The software giant’s policy reversal is more to do with pressure from consumers than anything else. He said he was eager to see the details, but he believes that the world of games software is constantly changing, while it might appear difficult for large parts of the industry to change along with it.

It seems that big publishers and developers will have to adapt to free-to-play and Ed Fries is glad that consoles are also starting to adopt this idea. He believes that there won’t have to be big publishers in the future. Actually, the way things are shaping up there may just be many small developers, getting together and then breaking up into little teams throughout the globe.

Indeed, big publishers were formed when games were very expensive and distribution was much more difficult. All these conditions have changed with digital distribution, and it isn’t necessary to deal with bricks and mortar stores anymore. The software giant is expected to specify its self-publishing policies in more detail during Gamescom later in August. We’ll see whether Fries proves right or not.

daveroy avatardidn't all the games first start from small groups or individuals so even though it's not totally feasible it would be nice to see small publishers prosper again.

nemesis43 avatar@ daveroy - Even though games started from small groups and individuals they still needed the `help` from the software houses to aid advertising, packaging & distribution - the great thing about digital distribution is that none of this is now really necessary.
I await gamescom later this month - this could get interesting and I think it`ll be agreat move for the gaming world - let`s hope others follow suit.
