Microsoft committed to bringing Xbox One games to Windows 10

One of Microsoft’s main plans for Windows 10 is to make it an ultimate operating system for gamers, a plan that requires the company making Windows 10 a cross-platform operating system that can power all the company’s devices. Now, it seems like Redmond wants to combine the two ideas.

Microsoft is reportedly preparing to release a selection of popular titles already available on Xbox One to Windows 10 PCs, as well, with the first game being Quantum Break. Microsoft’s idea revolves around purchasing one game for both platforms, with this marking the beginning of its plans.

Xbox One games coming to Windows 10?

Xbox head Phil Spencer recently revealed in an interview with IGN that Microsoft is now fully committed to bringing the Xbox One’s best franchises to Windows 10. However, Spencer also mentioned that Microsoft’s push doesn’t mean that all popular Xbox One games will end up on Windows 10 due to certain differences in gamepaly on every platform. Also unclear is if its method of releasing Quantum Break’s will apply to other games and whether owners of Xbox One games that make their way to Windows 10 will have to buy a Windows 10 copy.

“Microsoft is committed to bringing [the] biggest franchises from Xbox to Windows,” Xbox head Phil Spencer said to IGN. “We’ve said that. It doesn’t mean, necessarily, that every game ends up on both platforms, because there could be some differences in how things play.”

Since this isn’t an official announcement by Microsoft, a lot of details have yet to be revealed. But since Microsoft has shown to be dedicated to improving the gaming experience on Windows 10 by delivering more big names to the Windows Store, we expect more details from the company very soon.

Until then, you can try some popular games already on the Store, like Rise of the Tomb Raider and Gears of War. Which Xbox One game would you like to see in the Windows 10 Store? Tell us in the comments below!
