Microsoft’s Xbox platform could extend its gaming library to other platforms in the future.
In a recent interview, Matt Booty, head of Xbox Game Studios, revealed that the company is considering to release games for PlayStation and Nintendo Switch, if it makes sense.
Xbox titles could arrive on multiple platforms
After the acquisition of Double Fine, Psychonauts 2 will remain a multiplatform release, along with Minecraft on Playstation and Cuphead for Nintendo Switch.
This is amazing news for all gamers. Furthermore, when asked about multiplatform gaming, Matt Booty added:
Yeah, I think we would. I think that the question is less binary about, ‘should it be on Switch, should it be on PlayStation?’ and more, ‘does it make sense for the franchise? In other words, is it a kind of game where it would benefit from the network effect of being on a bunch of different platforms, or is it a game where we can best support it by putting resources and making sure that our platforms, things likexCloudand Game Pass and Xbox Live, are really leaning in to support the game?
Forza, Halo, and Sea of Thieves will remain Xbox exclusives
He also mentioned that original titles like Forza, Halo, and Sea of Thieves, were designed especially for Xbox and they will probably remain exclusive titles.
Microsoft is slowly changing their vision about gaming, and this could benefit all gamers, not only the ones that use Xbox for their daily gaming sessions.
