Earlier today, Xbox boss Phil Spencer unveiled a lengthy new article on Xbox Wire about the future of Xbox, confirming that Microsoft will continue to release all Xbox Game Studios titles on Xbox One for the "next couple of years."
We first heard about this all the way back in January via Xbox Game Studios head Matt Booty, who told MCVUK at the time that “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.”
Now, Spencer has reiterated those comments by telling players they won't be forced into the next generation at launch:
"We want every Xbox player to play all the new games from Xbox Game Studios. That’s why Xbox Game Studios titles we release in the next couple of years—like Halo Infinite—will be available and play great on Xbox Series X and Xbox One. We won’t force you to upgrade to Xbox Series X at launch to play Xbox exclusives."
Once again, Spencer also highlighted that all Xbox Game Studios titles will be released into Xbox Game Pass at launch going forward, including the likes of Halo Infinite, Hellblade II: Senua's Saga and more. Additionally, Project xCloud will be included at no extra charge for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers as of September.
