Changes coming to Xbox Achievements?

Dashboard and Apps News Xbox One Xbox One S

In an interview with Windows Central, Xbox Vice-President Mike Ybarra has hinted at a possible change to the way achievements will work on the Xbox platform.

“We can do a lot more to reflect and let people show their gaming history and their status, whether it’s somebody who only plays multiplayer in Halo 5 at a professional level, maybe they only have 2,000 Gamerscore, you want to be able to celebrate that person.”

While Ybarra didn’t go into any details about how and when the changes will happen he also said, “We’re going to go big in the area of letting people show off and represent their gaming history and the type of gamer that they are, far more than we do with Gamerscore.”

I personally don’t see this as a change to the current system, but I do think we will see an addition to the current loved system that will reward those of you rack up 100’s of hours on multiplayer shooters.

Adrian is the old man of the TiX team but has the enthusiasm for gaming as someone half his age (So, mid 20's then). He has a strong passion for the gaming industry, hates fanboyism and holds a strong belief that you should treat your fellow gamers with respect!

  1. I think this sounds great!

  2. Interesting. I have quite the gamerscore and people comment – but when you break down the age of the account to score per year, it’s far more average – be great to show this more easily. The vastness of games played against the time of the account.

    Likewise, be good to show off this who are completionists and go for the full GS per game.

    On XO the GS has taken a backseat compared to when they first appeared on 360
