Xbox has cemented their desire to bring first-party titles to PC and this trend will continue for a couple of years. This means that every Xbox exclusive game to be released for the next year will be made available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.
Xbox Game Studios boss Matt Booty confirmed this in an interview with MCV. He said, “As our content comes out over the next year, two years, all of our games, sort of like PC, will play up and down that family of devices,” Booty said.
“We want to make sure that if someone invests in Xbox between now and [Series X] that they feel that they made a good investment and that we’re committed to them with content. Our approach is to pick one or two IP that we’re going to focus on and make sure that they’re there at the launch of the console, taking advantage of all the features and for us that’s going to be Halo: Infinite, which is a big opportunity. It’s the first time in over 15 years that we’ll have a Halo title launching in sync with a new console. And that team is definitely going to be doing things to take advantage of [Series X].”
In a gist he basically confirmed that PC players will now be able to play Xbox exclusive titles, this is a bold strategy taking into consideration that the new console will not launch with exclusives and that could hamper the sales.
But on the other hand, this inclusive mentality will certainly have a lot of players getting into the Xbox exclusive games which could pay large dividends in the future.
We will keep updating about Xbox Series X and other titles as and when new information is made available.
