PS5 gets even more Xbox games, says Xbox Chief

According to Xbox Chief Phil Spencer, PS5 is poised to get even more Xbox games. Microsoft held its big Xbox Showcase on June 9, where it unveiled a bunch of new games coming out. This included reveals for an upcoming Perfect Dark game, a turn-based RPG called Expedition 33, details for Call of Duty: Black Ops 6, and a closer look at Fable.

In addition to all the trailers, however, Spencer delved deeper into Microsoft's plans for Xbox with its game releases and its strategy to give players more choice on where to play them. In conversation with IGN (through The edgeSpencer said Xbox would continue to give players the choice to subscribe or purchase to access newly released games. In addition, more Xbox games would be “coming to other screens”, such as the PS5 and Nintendo Switch.

Earlier this year, Microsoft revealed that four of its exclusive games would be making their way to PS5. This included Grounded, Sea of ​​Thieves, Pentiment and Hi-Fi Rush. Grounded and Pentiment have also been released for the Nintendo Switch.

More Xbox games are coming to PS5, but which ones are still a mystery

It's not clear which games are coming to other screens, but they are coming. Spencer does confirm that Microsoft will continue to look at launching its games for other platforms. Spencer also avoids mentioning PS5 and Nintendo Switch (or its successor) by name. But it's pretty clear which platforms Microsoft is looking at. Considering PlayStation and Nintendo are the only other two that make sense.

As The Verge notes, a number of games from Microsoft's first-party Xbox studios also make no mention of exclusivity. This isn't a confirmation that certain games will jump to PS5. For example, Indiana Jones and The Great Circle live exclusively on Xbox, but Spencer has never said as much. The same goes for the upcoming DOOM: The Dark Ages, which was announced on Sunday.

Games can still have exclusivity

While some upcoming games may appear on competing platforms, this may not happen right away. If Microsoft is considering the idea of ​​launching some of its bigger titles on other consoles, this could happen later. Similar to how Sony released their games for PC a while after their PS4/PS5 release.

This would ultimately give the Xbox platform some time on each release before jumping to other screens.
