Xbox is bringing four previously exclusive games to other platforms in the near future, and although the specific list hasn’t yet been revealed, reports have made it easy to place strong bets on which titles are coming. The official announcement of multi-platform titles has been backed up by weeks of rumors that already pointed in some specific directions, and some new hints help confirm certain details. Both the PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch are expected to be recipients of multi-platform Xbox releases, making these games available on every major current-generation console.


The announcement of four games coming to other platforms was made by Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer on the February 15 installment of the Official Xbox Podcast, made available on Xbox’s YouTube channel. Spencer specifically confirmed that none of the titles are Starfield or Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, putting some of the less substantiated rumors about what might be directly incoming to rest.

He also clarified that all four titles coming to other platforms are “over a year old,” a couple are community-driven, and the two others are “smaller games” that have “realized their full potential on Xbox and PC.”



Hi-Fi Rush Has Electrifying Rhythm Action

Hi-Fi Rush is one among several titles previously reported to be coming to rival consoles, and it matches nicely with Phil Spencer’s description of the multi-platform releases in the works. It might be the game serving as the baseline for the over-a-year requirement, as it barely clears that, having been released on January 25, 2023. Developed by Tango Gameworks, Hi-Fi Rush is a humorous rhythm action game where a guitar is the literal weapon of choice, and its vivid style struck a chord with fans.

Hi-Fi RUSH is an exciting rhythm-based action game with bundles of heart and thrilling moment to moment combat.

Phil Spencer refers to the two smaller titles that their studios “really wanted to go build,” which seems like a particularly apt description for Hi-Fi Rush. Although it was an unusual venture for Tango Gameworks, which usually works on horror titles, Hi-Fi Rush was a product of studio employees tending to “gravitate toward that creative excitement,” according to audio director Shuichi Kobori in an oral history published on the Xbox Wire blog. Its general popularity hasn’t generated the same huge sales numbers as many other titles published by Bethesda, so bringing it to other platforms could help boost its profits.

Pentiment Is A Medieval Murder Mystery

Likewise reported to be an Xbox title coming to other platforms, Pentiment would appear to be the other smaller game that Phil Spencer mentioned. Developed by Obsidian Entertainment, which has created bigger titles like Fallout: New Vegas and the upcoming fantasy RPG Avowed, Pentiment was a step back from that scale in favor of a 15-hour illustrated narrative experience. The more intimate focus on a 16th-century murder mystery certainly didn’t stop it from generating acclaim, and the $19.99 game claimed the mantle of Screen Rant’s 2022 Game of the Year.

Sea Of Thieves Is A Multiplayer Pirate Game

Sea of Thieves is also one of the titles that has already been reported to lose its status as an exclusive, and it fits directly into the “community-driven” billing that Phil Spencer mentioned for two of the games. Although Sea of Thieves can be played alone, it’s always been billed first and foremost as an opportunity to sail the seas with friends in a PvP and PvE pirate adventure, and online services are a big part of the experience. Sea of Thieves has received continual updates over the years, with major content additions consistently arriving as free DLC for the game.

Sea of Thieves
is currently in its eleventh season of content, and it’s received tie-in additions from the
Pirates of the Caribbean
and
Monkey Island
franchises in the past.


Investing in this model has helped generate continuous sales of Sea of Thieves, and it’s also been beneficial in pushing Xbox Game Pass, which has featured Sea of Thieves as a free title for subscribers ever since the game’s launch. Phil Spencer referred to the multi-platform strategy as a way to “continue to invest” in the two community-driven games, which would make sense for Sea of Thieves. The game is coming up on its sixth-year anniversary, so although it still has an active community, failing to generate a significant spike in sales could make updates trickle off in the not-so-distant future.

Although it didn’t receive as much buzz over the last few weeks as the other titles, the last entry among the four Xbox titles coming to PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch is likely Grounded. As a great multiplayer survival game, this fills the other community-driven slot, and it’s been receiving ongoing updates well past its initial early access period. The unique hook of the game is the scale, as players get to experience the game from the perspective of humans shrunk to the size of ants, which can make usually innocuous bugs and small creatures into terrifying threats.

Grounded Review: Big Fun in a Small Package

The full release of Obsidian Entertainment’s Grounded does not disappoint, bringing gorgeous graphics and deep survival mechanics to the backyard.


The lack of an iconic IP and the variety of survival alternatives on the market makes Grounded an exclusive that doesn’t have much system-selling power, but the quality of the game could generate plenty of multi-platform software sales. This could be welcome news for fans of the game, potentially expanding its lifespan and generating higher odds of a future sequel. Reporting indicates Grounded will accompany Sea of Thieves in a later release window than Hi-Fi Rush and Pentiment.

The success of these four titles on other platforms — and whether the move has any impact on overall sales of Xbox or Xbox Game Pass — could serve as the barometer for Microsoft bringing other Xbox games to PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch in the future. Whether more games end up coming or not, it’s exciting for players on other platforms to get to enjoy these four, all of which have attracted generally positive receptions. Hi-Fi Rush, Pentiment, Sea of Thieves, and Grounded should be strong additions to the PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch catalogs thanks to Xbox‘s new multi-platform initiative.
