The way the console market has functioned is that business such as Microsoft, Sony, and also Nintendo produce games that are typically unique to their own systems. This is an attempt to distinguish themselves from each other and likewise to lure players from one platform to their order.
Sadly, this has led to a fragmented market, but that’s something that Microsoft is hoping to attend in the future. Speaking to Game Informer, Xbox Video game Studios chief Matt Booty suggested that in the future, Microsoft could be considering releasing Xbox games on non-Xbox systems, such as those by Sony and Nintendo.
According to Booty, “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?’” However, he notes that this does not mean that exclusive titles will be gone. “But then obviously we’re going to have our big franchises like Forza, Halo, and Sea of Thieves, where those games are designed from the outset to exist on Xbox, I think that will continue.”
To date, Microsoft’s launches have commonly been for both the Xbox as well as PC platform, however, for the most part, we haven’t seen an Xbox video game, at least one created as well as created by Microsoft, show up for non-Xbox platforms. When these changes are expected to be made remains to be seen, however maybe something to eagerly anticipate in the future.
