Microsoft will bring four Xbox games to other companies' consoles

It's official: Microsoft is bringing some Xbox-exclusive games to PS5 and Nintendo Switch. It's part of a broader strategy shift inside Microsoft's gaming business to grow games beyond just the company's Xbox consoles.

"We've made the decision that we're going to take four games to the other consoles," reveals Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer on the official Xbox podcast.

Microsoft declined to identify the titles in question, but Spencer said they won't be Starfield, a long-awaited game that came out in September, or the forthcoming Indiana Jones and the Great Circle.

He said that all the games are over a year old and added that two of those titles are "kind of community-driven games." Putting these games on other platforms will allow Microsoft "to continue to invest in them."

Phil Spencer stated that the other two games are smaller titles. These games were never designed to be big exclusive titles and they have now reached their limits on the Xbox and PC platforms to go to other video game consoles. The idea is to "just drive more business value out of those games." Spencer hinted that if those two games were successful on other platforms, Microsoft could make sequels to those titles or at least games similar to those projects.

This is not completely new territory for Microsoft; Spencer noted in the podcast that the acquisitions of Activision Blizzard and Bethesda parent Zenimax mean that Microsoft is already "one of the largest game publishers on PlayStation." Microsoft has also spent years pushing the ability to play Xbox games on other screens via Game Pass streaming.
