Microsoft has helped bring a few of their games over to the Nintendo Switch this year. Unfortunately, it seems that more titles aren’t on the way for the time being.
Microsoft has confirmed in a statement to Gamesindustry.biz that there are “no plans to further expand our exclusive first party games to other consoles”.
Microsoft says that the reason for this is to “focus on making games for our platforms”.
Microsoft statement on first party titles
The past year has been an exciting time for us as we have more than doubled the internal creative teams making up Xbox Game Studios. As these new studios transitioned in, we were aware of some existing commitments to other platforms and will honor them. However, going forward these new studios will focus on making games for our platforms. We have no plans to further expand our exclusive first party games to other consoles. We continue to believe deeply in cross play and progression of games with the right flexibility for developers to insure a fair and fun experience.
