Players have had their turn to bully Phil Spencer in Fallout 76 for the closure of three studios in Bethesda last week. Now, it's the Xbox executive’s turn to strike back at the bullies.

Twitter exploded last week with hilarious posts revealing that someone had specifically picked Phil Spencer's C.A.M.P. in Fallout 76 to nuke last week in what appeared to be a retaliation for the announced closure of the studios Alpha Dog Games, Tango Gameworks, and Arkane Austin.

The perpetrator of the nuking said over the weekend that he had already planned to nuke the Xbox boss long before the closures happened, and it wasn't personal. However, other players are taking his lead and announced plans to do the same as revenge for the studio closures.

It appears, however, that Spencer is not taking this without a retaliatory strike.

According to a post by Mr. Rebs Gaming on X, formerly Twitter, Phil Spencer had recently completed the “Officer on Deck” quest in Fallout 76. Wastelanders know this quest gives players command of the nuclear arsenal at the Whitespring bunker.

Essentially, Phil Spencer is preparing for nuclear war. This means that all of us will be keeping a close eye on who he fires at first in the escalating digital nuclear warfare sparked by the sudden studio closures last week.

Microsoft publicly refers to the closures as a necessary step towards what its executives are calling a “reprioritization of titles” within its portfolio. This means the tech giant is looking to refocus assets on franchises with a solid history of generating much-needed revenues.

Microsoft is not even done yet. A recent report revealed that staff at ZeniMax Online Studios, which maintains The Elder Scrolls, were offered voluntary severance packages during a town hall meeting attended by ZeniMax chief Jill Braff and Xbox chief Matt Booty.
