In a new blogpost, Microsoft has confirmed that every new title that will be published by Microsoft Studios will be coming to the PC. All of these games will support Xbox Play Anywhere, and will be easily accessible in the Windows Store. In other words, the next Halo game will hit the PC, though pretty much all of the games supporting Xbox Play Anywhere will be exclusive to the Windows Store.
As Microsoft claimed in its “Windows 10 Anniversary Update Available August 2” article:
“With the Xbox Play Anywhere program, you can buy a game once and play on your Windows 10 PC and Xbox One with shared progress, shared game saves and shared achievements. Every new title published from Microsoft Studios will support Xbox Play Anywhere and will be easily accessible in the Windows Store.”
As Microsoft stated, Xbox Play Anywhere games will be offered within the new unified Windows Store on both Windows 10 and Xbox One.
In other words, all future major first party triple-A games for Xbox One – that will be published by Microsoft Studios – will be available on the PC. And while these games seem to be exclusive to the Windows Store, it’s definitely something that will at least please a number of PC gamers.
Here is hoping that these games – that will most likely be DX12-only titles – will be better optimized for the PC platform than what we’ve got so far!
