Dead Rising 4 is coming to the Xbox One and Windows 10 on December 6, 2016, and is one of the most anticipated titles of the year. Unlike Dead Rising 3, though, this game won’t stay exclusive to Microsoft, with the door wide open for it to be released on other platforms in the future.

In a statement to GameSpot, Microsoft confirmed the game won’t be a full exclusive but rather it will be a timed exclusive to Windows 10 for the first 90 days of release and an Xbox One timed exclusive for an entire year.

Dead Rising 4 will probably find its way to Steam after the Windows 10 exclusivity is up, and then to the PlayStation 4 after its one-year run has ended on the Xbox One. This shouldn’t be a big deal seeing as when a game is released a year later on a competing console, it no longer has the same spark.

With this being the case now, console gamers can decide to either get an Xbox One if they haven’t already or wait until it is available on the PlayStation 4 come 2017 or sometime in 2018.

Here’s the full statement from Microsoft:

“Dead Rising 4 on Xbox One is developed by Capcom and will be published in partnership with Microsoft. Fans will be able to play ‘Dead Rising 4’ first on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC this December. It will remain a Windows 10 exclusive for the first 90 days and console exclusive on Xbox One for one year. We’ve had a close and longstanding relationship with Capcom including the launch of Dead Rising as an Xbox 360 exclusive and Dead Rising 3 as an Xbox One exclusive. We’re thrilled to partner with Capcom once again to help bring their ambitious vision for Dead Rising 4 to life.”

Dear Rising 4 isn’t the only game coming to Xbox One. Those who are planning to see the new Ghostbusters movie can have a look at the official companion video game, featuring a 4-player co-op mode among other things to get fans excited. Furthermore, there’s a good chance Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn might show up on the Xbox One in the near future.
