Microsoft Studios’ Matt Booty recently revealed, in an interview with MCVUK that, Xbox Series X games in development at Xbox Game Studios won’t be gen exclusive for the next two years. This cross-gen period comes from Microsoft’s commitment to players who had invested in a Xbox console in the recent years.
“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”.
Matt Booty explains that a large number of developers are trying to release along with the Series X’s release. The launch of the next-generation Xbox Series X will be unique, as the announced next-gen titles will also work for the Xbox One consoles.
While players won’t have upgrade their Xbox One, or ditch an older gaming PC to play Halo Infinite, Matt Booty says that, Halo Infinite will take advantage of all the new technologies featured in the Series X, in order to deliverplayers the best experience.
“Our approach is to pick one or two IP that we’re going to focus on and make sure that they’re there at the launch of the console, taking advantage of all the features. And for us that’s going to be Halo Infinite, which is a big opportunity.”
“It’s the first time in over 15 years that we’ll have a Halo title launching in sync with a new console. And that team is definitely going to be doing things to take advantage of [Series X].
“We need to make sure that we hold the bar high on quality, and that we’re releasing games that we can be proud of and that the fans can be proud of as Xbox exclusives.”
