When talking about successors, Spencer said: "When you consider the long-term good development of the team, you should do this to ensure that the team is in a favorable position and the company maintains a good culture. We are making decisions about who the successor is. Decide."


In addition, Spencer also discussed how his team views the future of the gaming department and said that they like to use "Horizon" as the target node. For example, the "Horizon One" project is what is happening today. "Horizon 2" is a project that takes place in one or three years, while "Horizon 3" is an important project that may not happen in five or even ten years.
