Mange er helt naturligt skuffede og vrede over Microsofts melding tirsdag om, at lukke Arkane Austin og Tango Gameworks, samt to mindre studier hos Bethesda. Mange vender deres vrede direkte mod Microsoft gaming boss Phil Spencer, som i sidste ende er ansvarlig for denne slags beslutninger.

Tidligere Xbox og Blizzard boss Mike Ybarra synes dog ikke det er helt fair, at man blamer Phil Spencer personligt - i en post på mediet X skriver han:

"I see a lot of shots at Phil over today's Xbox announcements. I get it. But knowing him as a human, I know this hurts him as much as anyone else. I can't speak for all of the leadership there, but I do know him and I do know what he is likely going through.

I'm not trying to defend the decisions. I think we all get ourselves into situations that are tough and unexpected (certainly I have). It's part of the job, as is the accountability for the outcomes. But he's a good human and he cares deeply for the creative process and developers. That's my first hand experience in working closely with him for 8+ years and knowing him for 24+."

Flere har efterfølgende pointeret, at det nok ikke er Phil Spencer man skal have ondt af i den her situation og det til det siger Ybarra: "The point is he isn't the robot some make him out to be, and some are taking this personally to him as a human".

Ybarra siger også, at i disse situationer er der mange ting, som os udenfor Microsoft ikke får at vide og vi ved ikke præcis hvad der foregår indenfor murene og slutter af med at sige, "He's accountable for where Xbox is yes, but I won't stand silent when people personally attack friends of mine. I don't care who comes at me."
