Microsoft’s general manager of games marketing Aaron Greenberg has clarified Microsoft’s stance on first-party exclusivity.
Speaking to MCVUK on the nature of exclusivity, Greenberg has expanded on Xbox’s stance on first-party exclusives.
With every first-party game being also available on PC – with PC having actual exclusives like Age of Empires – Microsoft needs to work more on providing console players with more.
“Going forward, all of our internal studios, and the new studios we’ve added, will be focused on making games for our platforms and we have no plans to expand our exclusive first-party games to any other consoles,” Greenberg told MCVUK.
“Those teams, going forward, will be focused on making games for our platforms. So while we know there’s existing commitments in place, take The Outer Worlds as an example, there was already a commitment to make that game available as a multiplatform title and we’ll continue to honour that.”
