Microsoft which continues to port its games to its competitors? This is what some information currently circulating on the Internet reveals. After Indiana Jones and Sea of Thieves, it’s the turn of this big game.
Big turn of events in the video game world. After Indiana Jones and Sea of Thieves, Microsoft should continue to bring its exclusives to competing consoles. “ Microsoft considered bringing its hit multiplayer pirate game, Sea of Thieves, to PlayStation » declared to Game File a source close to the porting plans on January 8, 2024. Still for this year other sources also point to the arrival of Starfield on PS5 and Hi-Fi Rush at Sony, but also on Nintendo Switch.
Soon Gears of War on Playstation?
It is in this context that the famous insider, Jeff Grubb, revealed new information which has new bombshell effects. By continuing to release its exclusives, Xbox would therefore plan to release Gears of War on other consoles. “ There is an internal debate about what form this will take, which games will be affected » indicated Grubb on the microphone of the show Game Mess Mornings. “ At first, we were talking about Hi-Fi Rush, Sea of Thieves and Pentiment, which made sense. But the other name that I’ve heard, and that’s really under consideration, is Gears of War. It’s huge, we’re talking about a video game monument, the equivalent of Halo for Xbox » he detailed.
Gears of War is indeed one of Microsoft’s flagship licenses. The first title was released on November 7, 2007 for PC and Xbox 360. He had also received a triumphant welcome with a rating of 94/100 from the specialized press on Metacritic. An equally warm reception from players with a score of 8.3/10 from 1828 reviews. In total, Gears of War has sold nearly six million copies worldwide. In 2017, Tim Sweeney also mentioned that the software had generated 100 million dollars. The latest, Gears 5, released on September 6, 2019, received notice equally good with an 84/100 for the media and an 8.2/10 for the players.
An upcoming response from Xbox?
Jeff Grubb also specified that Microsoft will communicate soon. “ The other thing I can corroborate is a rumor that there will be something at the end of February to explain this change “. However, given the current context with players increasingly impatient to have a response from the American firm, it could be that answers will arrive sooner. You should know that The Coalition announced in May 2021 that they were preparing to develop their next games using Unreal Engine 5 (which seems logical considering that Epic Game is one of the developers of the series). Unfortunately, the studio had clarified that it did not plan to announce any new games in the near future.
