The Xbox boss said: “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.”
However, during the Xbox Games Showcase a number of first-party titles were listed as specifically coming to the Xbox Series X and PCs, with no mention of the Xbox One.
These games were Forza Motorsport, Fable, Avowed, As Dusk Falls, Everwild and State of Decay 3.
It has muddied the waters surrounding Microsoft’s cross-gen strategy and brought up a number of questions.
Are the Xbox team now looking to focus on Series X exclusives? Or is this a sign the games in question will be launching after the two year window Booty talked about?
