New claims from Windows Central state that Xbox could release any of its games on other platforms to boost sales!

Every console has exclusive games, and Xbox has had its fair share of must-have titles throughout its history.

Whether it is classic series like Halo, Forza and Gears of War or more recent games like Starfield, there are plenty of games that PlayStation and Nintendo fans would love to play on their favored platforms.

Fortunately, it looks like Xbox will be expanding its cross-platform approach. And not even its most prized games are off the table!

Xbox Could Be Going All-In With Multi-Platform Releases

Xbox has already experimented with releasing games on PlayStation and Nintendo consoles, with the releases of Sea of Thieves, Hi-Fi Rush, Grounded and Pentiment. However, Windows Central believes that any Xbox title could be multi-platform in the future.

Jez Corden of Windows Central claims that Xbox plans to launch more of its games on other platforms with an operation codenamed “latitude”. And while this plan is not universally supported within the company, it still seems to be going ahead.

Additionally, Corden says that Microsoft is pushing for “no red line” regarding which games could release on other platforms.

This means that we could see the iconic Xbox mascot, Master Chief, on PlayStation or the classic Gears of Wars games come to Nintendo Switch!

While Xbox has certainly tested the waters with some of its smaller games releasing on other consoles in recent months, putting Halo or Gears on PlayStation would be a much more extreme move.

After all, if Xbox no longer had any exclusives, gamers would have very little reason to buy an Xbox console.

Because of this, there is also a chance that the supposed cross-platform release plan will not materialize. We will have to be patient and wait for Xbox to share its future plans for multiplatform titles.

However, even though the future of Xbox exclusives is uncertain, the company remains focused on hardware. Microsoft is already “moving full speed ahead” with the next-gen Xbox console!
