Exclusive Xbox games will be available beyond Microsoft’s console ecosystem

Microsoft intends to bring several video games that are only available on the Xbox to other gaming platforms and consoles. At least four titles will be playable on other systems, such as the Nintendo Switch and Sony PlayStation 5, according to Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer. Spencer announced on February 15 in a special episode of the official Xbox podcast, “We’ve decided that we’re going to take four games to the other consoles.”

The business stated that two of the titles are community-driven games and the remaining titles are smaller, but it has not revealed which specific titles are being expanded to other platforms. Sea of Thieves and Grounded are probably the next two games to lose their exclusivity, after Hi-Fi Rush and Pentiment, according to rumors.

Over the next five to ten years, console-exclusive games will likely become a smaller part of the gaming business, according to the CEO of Microsoft Gaming, who made this prediction on the podcast. He continued, “I do have a fundamental belief that over the next five or ten years, exclusive games, games that are exclusive to one piece of hardware, are going to be a smaller and smaller part of the game industry.”

Which Games are Coming to Other Formats:

Although Microsoft has formally said that four of its exclusive games will be released on other platforms, there are rumors in the media that the corporation may expand this list to include well-known games like Starfield. The recently unveiled video game Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, which was first announced for Windows PCs and Xbox systems, might possibly make an appearance on other gaming devices.

Phil Spencer stated that Starfield and Indiana Jones are not included in the original expansion plans in an interview with The Verge. He did, however, leave up the prospect that other titles might do the same. “We don’t have work going on on other franchises,” Spencer said. However, I believe it seems like adding more certainty in the gaming industry when you truly want to adapt to what players and creators want and what buyers want when someone stands up and says this will never happen.”

By bringing Xbox titles to other gaming systems, Microsoft may be able to reach a wider audience for its video games and boost profits in its gaming business.
