Xbox Series X Will Launch without First-Party Exclusives

Xbox Series X Will Launch without First-Party Exclusives

In somewhat surprising move, Microsoft showed off Xbox Series X earlier last month. While we are still a long way from the official product release, we are learning new things about the upcoming console on a regular basis. If you owned console in the past, then you already know that Microsoft along with other console manufacturers, have produced console exclusive titles. Interestingly, Microsoft has revealed that Microsoft will not be producing Xbox Series X exclusive titles.

In a recent interview, Microsoft Studios chief Matt Booty revealed that Microsoft is committed to sure that if someone invests in Xbox between now and [Series X] that they feel that they made a good investment and that we’re committed to them with content.

He said, “As our content comes out over the next year, two years, all of our games, sort of like PC, will play up and down that family of devices. We want to make sure that if someone invests in Xbox between now and [Series X] that they feel that they made a good investment and that we’re committed to them with content.”

This latest confirmation should be welcomed by everyone given consumers won’t be required to purchase a new console to play new titles. Although the actual number of exclusive titles is currently unknown, Booty said that the company will release at least one title in every three or four months.

This isn’t surprising considering Microsoft recently acquired a number of studios to bolster new releases. However, it will be interesting to see how Microsoft’s latest decision impacts Xbox Series X’s sales. At the moment, PS5 might be the better console for gamers to invest when both of the consoles become available. At the moment, we will have to wait to find out more about the upcoming console ahead of its release later this year.
