Microsoft backtracks on exclusives, now claims that only its E3 2016 games will be coming to Windows 10

Two days ago, we informed you about Microsoft’s plans to release every future first-party game on Windows 10 (alongside Xbox One). Well, that seemed too good to be true. Microsoft stealth edited its blogpost and now claims that only the games that were shown onstage at E3 2016 will be coming to Windows 10 (thanks to Xbox Play Anywhere).

This is what Microsoft claimed two days ago:

“Every new title published from Microsoft Studios will support Xbox Play Anywhere and will be easily accessible in the Windows Store.”

And here is what the new edited message looks like:

“Every new title published from Microsoft Studios that we showed onstage at E3 this year will support Xbox Play Anywhere and will be easily accessible in the Windows Store.”

In other words, Microsoft has backtracked on its previous statement about all future Microsoft-published games featuring Xbox Play Anywhere and coming to Windows 10.

This obviously means that future Xbox One exclusives – like Halo 6 – may not come to Windows 10.

Whether this is an attempt at damage control or not remains to be seen!
