Newly acquired studios to continue creating multi-platform titles, Xbox says

Miscrosoft is reportedly willing to consider putting future games on rival platforms, according to Xbox first-party studio boss Matt Booty.

Expanding on what he said, Booty explained that any agreement would be on a “per-franchise” basis – but wouldn’t be against the idea of newly acquired studios such as Double Fine, Obsidian, and Ninja Theory would be able to carry on creating multiplatform games.

Booty said: “I think that the question is less binary about, ‘should it be on Switch, should it be on PlayStation?’ and more, ‘does it make sense for the franchise?'”

“In other words, is it a kind of game where it would benefit from the network effect of being on a bunch of different platforms, or is it a game where we can best support it by putting resources and making sure that our platforms, things like xCloud and Game Pass and Xbox Live, are really leaning in to support the game?”
