Microsoft has been doing it for long as they brought all their Xbox exclusive games to Windows 10 PCs including the Halo Master Chief Collection from the past. Going forward in time, all Xbox Series X and Series S possibly, will be games that release on multiple multiple platforms.
Besides, Sony’s PlayStation 4 thrives on first party exclusives like God of War and Spiderman whereas Forza Horizon 4 and Gears 5 are already available on Windows 10 PCs. It doesn’t end there because they are also available for free if you have already subscribed for Xbox Game Pass beta for PC at just $5 a month.
With so many variables, and an official announcement, it is now confirmed that Xbox Series X will not have first party exclusives for a couple of years. The trend seems to be catching up in the long run as exclusivity is slowly going out of the window. Sony allowed titles like Heavy Rain and Crash Bandicoot to get launched on Windows PCs and Xbox.
Similarly, Nintendo has adopted the concept of AAA titles like Witcher 3 and Rocket League getting launched on their hybrid console. Gamers are also keen on making all these games cross generation and cross play platform so that it works great for multiple titles.
PUBG and Fortnite has already started pushing this integration so that it shouldn’t be a big problem for all future titles to be made available on multiple platforms. In other words, Xbox Series X is expected to be the new pre-built gaming PC that you could purchase for your living room or even a full blown gaming setup once it starts supporting mouse and keyboard out of the box.
Microsoft has purchased multiple gaming studios and all the games they develop will be made available on day one on Xbox Game Pass as well as Windows 10 PCs.
