Microsoft clarified their earlier statement regarding Xbox Play Anywhere to only include those games shown during this year’s E3. Major bummer for anyone who was expecting a PC release for the much awaited “Halo 6.”
According to their blog, with the Xbox Play Anywhere program users can buy a game once and play on your Windows 10 PC and Xbox One. Progress will be shared along with achievements and game saves.
Halo 6 PC Edition
Additionally every new title published by Microsoft Studios will support Xbox Play Anywhere and will be easily accessible in the Windows Store. Essentially, buying a game for the Xbox One also comes with a PC version and vice-versa. This post was later updated to specify games announced during E3
Limiting it to the games revealed during E3 means that future published games won’t necessarily be available to PC. Most games of the Halo franchise has been exclusively available on the Xbox platform which is why a PC release was welcome news.
Halo 6 For PC Still Possible?
According to Gamespot, despite the announcement, Halo 6 might still have a chance of coming to the PC. With the released of Halo 5 free Forge tools on Windows 10, the franchise could be slowly making its way into the PC market.
Overlocked revealed some of the games the company has confirmed to be part of the program. The list includes Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Halo Wars 2, ReCore, Scalebound, Sea of Thieves, State of Decay 2, We Happy Few.
The software giant’s biggest rival, Sony, has yet to announce any plans regarding similar plans to join the PS4’s games with PC. Playstation President Andrew House said that he refuses to be drawn into discussions of someone else’s strategy.
Whether Microsoft will limit the coverage of Xbox Play Anywhere only to the games revealed during E3 is still up for reconsideration. Hopefully, will see Halo 6 released on PC along with Xbox One.
