Microsoft confirms that four Xbox exclusive titles will become available on other platforms. Specific titles or dates have not yet been announced. Rumors suggest Halo and Sea of Thieves are among them.

Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer has confirmed that four Xbox-exclusive titles will make their way to other platforms, with the latter likely referring to the Sony PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch. However, he didn't mention the specific titles or date yet, but hinted that the games in question have been on Xbox and PC for at least a year. "A couple of the games are community-driven games, new games, sort of first iterations of a franchise that's reached their full potential, say, on Xbox and PC — there's always growth, franchises that we obviously want to continue to invest in,” Spencer said during the latest edition of the Official Xbox Podcast.

"Two of the other games are smaller games that were never really intended to be built as sort of platform exclusives and all the fuss that goes around that, but games that our teams really wanted to go build and we love to support creative endeavors across our studios regardless of size.” Rumors suggest that Halo, Gears of War, Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves would be among those being ported to PlayStation 5 or even Nintendo Switch. Previously, it was also speculated that Starfield and the upcoming Indiana Jones game would make the jump, but Microsoft confirms that these two titles would remain as Xbox and PC exclusives.


On that note, Spencer adds that Xbox isn't going to commit to porting other titles to multiple platforms beyond these four games just yet, pointing out that not every exclusive will follow suit. However, he hinted that his team will take notes based on the impact of the first four games first and will decide on future potential transfers from there. In its latest Xbox Wire blog post, Microsoft wrote that bringing these games to more players would not only expand the reach and impact of these titles, but also allow it to invest in either future versions of these games or elsewhere in its first-party portfolio.

The company adds that despite the shift, there is no fundamental change in its approach to exclusivity. Meanwhile, Microsoft Studios president Matt Booty noted on the podcast that Microsoft will continue to release its first-party games on Game Pass on their release date. He also assured that the subscription would remain as an exclusive to the brand's Xbox console and PC as of now.
