In a major shift for the gaming world, Xbox has announced that four of its popular first-party games will be coming to PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. Pentiment, Hi-Fi Rush, Sea of Thieves, and Grounded will all be released on new platforms, marking a significant departure from Microsoft’s traditional strategy of keeping its titles exclusive to Xbox and PC.

This decision comes as a welcome surprise to many gamers, as Microsoft has traditionally kept its games exclusive to Xbox and PC. However, in recent weeks, Xbox made it clear that company is committed to bringing its games to as many players as possible.

“These are titles which have been available to Xbox players for at least a year, including hidden gems that deserve to be experienced more widely, and live service games whose communities will benefit from welcoming even more players,” Xbox said last week in a statement.

It continued: ““By bringing these games to more players, we not only expand the reach and impact of those titles, but this will allow us to invest in either future versions of these games, or elsewhere in our first-party portfolio. There is no fundamental change to our approach on exclusivity.”

Great games should be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of what platform they play on. And by bringing these games to PlayStation and Switch, Xbox is opening up the opportunity for millions of new players to experience them.

The move is also seen as a way for Xbox to generate more revenue and investment for its future titles. By expanding its reach, Xbox can tap into a new market of potential customers.

The four games coming to new platforms offer a diverse range of experiences. Pentiment is a historical mystery game from Obsidian Entertainment, while Hi-Fi Rush is a stylish action game from Tango Gameworks. Sea of Thieves is the best pirate game on the market, and Grounded is a first-person survival game set in a backyard.

  • Pentiment will be coming to PlayStation 5, PlaySttaion 4, and Nintendo Switch on February 22.
  • Hi-Fi Rush will be available on PlayStation 5 on March 19.
  • Grounded will arrive on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch on April 16.
  • And Sea of Thieves will set sail on the PlayStation 5 on April 30.

This is a major development for the gaming industry, and it will be interesting to see how it impacts the landscape in the coming years. With Xbox games now available on more platforms than ever before, there’s no doubt that more players will be able to enjoy them.
