Home » Not all new Xbox games will come to Windows 10, Microsoft changes its mind

Microsoft is breaking its promise to bring all new Xbox games to Windows 10, although a few days ago, Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President, Windows and Devices Group has insisted that Play Anywhere will be available for all new games released in the Windows Store.

Yusuf Mehdi had a short intervention on Microsoft’s blog, saying a few words about the Anniversary Update for Windows 10 and he made reference to Play Anywhere, assuring users that they could soon buy a game once and play it on their Windows 10 PC and Xbox One.

With the Xbox Play Anywhere program, you can buy a game once and play on your Windows 10 PC and Xbox One with shared progress, shared game saves and shared achievements. Every new title published from Microsoft Studios will support Xbox Play Anywhere and will be easily accessible in the Windows Store.

Everybody was extremely happy, especially those who had in mind to play the upcoming Halo 6 on their PCs. Unfortunately, Microsoft has changed its mind and backtracked on that statement, saying that “Every new title published from Microsoft Studios that we showed onstage at E3 this year will support Xbox Play Anywhere and will be easily accessible in the Windows Store.”

Halo 6 might still come to PC, but other games will be kept exclusive to Xbox One, to boost console sales. Unfortunately, at this point, it’s not sure which new game will be available for PC, but on August 2 we’ll find out more information. This is the date when the Windows 10 Anniversary Update will be released, but Microsoft is still bringing new builds to Insiders, which contain important fixes.

The latest build, 14383, was released simultaneously for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile and the upcoming build, 14384 is considered the first candidate for Release To Manufacturing (RTM). After being released to users in the stable channel, the “RTM” build will arrive months later to the Current Branch for Business.
