Microsoft plans to release the Xbox One game Halo: The Master Chief Collection in China sometime in August. It will be the first game in the long-running sci-fi first-person shooter series to go on sale in China.
The government of China recently decided to lift the 15-year sales ban of game consoles in the country. VentureBeat reports that Microsoft's Xbox leader Phil Spencer, speaking at the China Digital Entertainment Congress in Shanghai, said that the company is making big investments in the country to boost sales of the console and its games.
"We know this is a long-term investment for Xbox," he said. "We have teams here investing and are committed to growing this business slowly. But most importantly, we are doing it in collaboration with the industry. What is missing so far is a game developed in China, and games locally developed in China that are reaching large global audiences. Hopefully all of us together can strive for that success point. There is nothing more critical to me in bringing Xbox to China than unlocking the potential of developers here."
Spencer also said that Minecraft for the Xbox One will be released in China, but did not give a specific date.
