Xbox is hinting at making games for PlayStation and Nintendo. This comes as Game Informer sits with Matt Booty who is ahead of Xbox Game Studios. He talks about some games may go beyond PC and Xbox leaving only PlayStation and Nintendo.
“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 like xCloud and Game Pass and Xbox Live, are really leaning in to support the game.
With something like Minecraft, I think it was a no-brainer that we were never going to try and take anything from players that existed on those platforms, and certainly we’ve added platforms since that acquisition,” said Booty. “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 really exist on Xbox, I think that will continue.” Matt Booty
Could count to everyone doing cross platform which the videogame community wants badly. But how big of a step depends on how far this goes. We will see and if I hear more I will let you know.
