Microsoft has released a special podcast featuring Xbox executives Phil Spencer, Matt Booty and Sarah Bonda. The broadcast confirmed what everyone had known about for more than a week: the company is partially abandoning exclusives.

Spencer confirmed that four Xbox-branded games will appear on “other consoles”, that is, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch. Specific titles have not been named, but rumors include Sea of ​​Thieves, Pentiment, Grounded and Hi-Fi Rush.

Starfield and the Indiana Jones game will remain exclusive, but Phil Spencer hasn’t ruled out their appearance on other platforms in the future. For now, the focus is on four announced titles.

I strongly believe that over the next five to ten years, exclusive games, games designed exclusively for one device, will make up a smaller and smaller part of the gaming industry.
