Microsoft has cheekily pointed to the fact that many of tonight’s big PlayStation Showcase announcements were also games you can play on Xbox Series X/S.
MGS3 remake Metal Gear Solid Delta, Bungie’s new Marathon project, Alan Wake 2, Assassin’s Creed Mirage and Dragon’s Dogma 2 might not have featured Xbox logos in their trailers during Sony’s show – but they are all coming to Xbox, as noted by tweet from Microsoft.
That tweet – posted right after Sony’s show finished – is clearly meant as a bit of fun. But it does also highlight just how much of tonight’s PlayStation Showcase will be available elsewhere.
EA-published magic FPS Immortals of Aveum, Ghostrunner 2, eye-catching indie The Plucky Squire, voxel destruction game Teardown, Cat Quest: Pirates of the Purribean and The Talos Principle 2 will all be on Xbox, alongside Neva, the next project from the creator of Gris.
What won’t come to Xbox? Colourful heist shooter Fairgame$, from recent PlayStation Studios inductee Haven. Neither will Helldivers 2, which looks to be once again published by PlayStation itself. Final Fantasy 16 is, of course, a major console exclusive from Square Enix, whose Splatoon-like Foamstars also appears to be PlayStation only. And last but not least, Spider-Man 2.
