Phil Spencer, head of Xbox at Microsoft, has been ringing in 2016 by answering fan questions on Twitter. So far, we haven’t heard too many straight answers about what’s to come, but he has dropped a few interesting tidbits.

First off, Spencer is super excited about the upcoming year’s intellectual property (IP). No surprise there. “Shipping more new IP than we have in a long time,” he said, “Good challenge to make new IP succeed.”

And will that new IP have special limited editions? “We haven’t locked all the versions of each game yet but we know some fans like LE [limited editions] with more content so we’ll look at it.”

If you played the horror game Alan Wake and liked it, you may be in luck. When asked about a sequel, Spencer said, “Right now all of our focus with Remedy Games is on Quantum Break, but as we finish I’m sure we’ll talk about the future.” Promising.

One solid thing we learned from his Tweets: Xbox 360 will not be streaming to Windows 10 any time soon. Sorry.
