Microsoft’s Matt Booty feels that series like The Outer Worlds are so big to the point they will make these games exclusive to Xbox. While they’ll let Double Fine release their games everywhere, bigger titles like Forza, Gears, and Halo will be exclusive to Xbox and PC. Well, unfortunately, The Outer Words is joining those ranks. Game Informer asked Booty about if this series will become exclusive in the future:
Yeah, I think that’d be that kind of game. And from what we’ve seen of The Outer Worlds, my hope is that it’s something that we can build. That it really becomes an enduring franchise that really starts to grow and that we can help expand. I think it’s a great universe they’ve created, I think about what are the things that you need for a franchise to bear weight.Matt Booty, Head of Xbox Game Studios
The Outer Worlds is out on October 25th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC with a Nintendo Switch version coming after.
