It follows a hiring drive at new Gears of War studio Black Tusk, which promises to deliver an "industry-leading multiplayer experience."

Despite being promoted to head of Xbox, Spencer has still found time to engage with gamers online, something he's typically proven quite good at.

It's fair to say that Microsoft is in a stronger position now than it was leading up to E3 2013, given Xbox One's reveal and a few controversial episodes that followed. Spencer certainly seems confident that the company will bring its best face to the show, which could yield potential showings from Black Tusk's Gears of War title, Halo 5, Quantum Break and more.

Come June, we'll know what's in store.
