With the next console generation slowly arriving over the horizon, we would normally expect to see an array of flashy new games seemingly designed to show off the capabilities of the new hardware. However, this is not the case for the Xbox Series X
Microsoft’s Matt Booty said to expect titles to be playable across both Xbox One and Xbox Series X. At least for the first year or two. Speaking to MCV, Booty said;
“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.
We want to make sure that if someone invests in Xbox between now and [Series X] that they feel that they made a good investment and that we’re committed to them with content.”MCV
Of course, the company will still be wanting to show off its new hardware to the best effect. This will be the first time in 15 years a Halo title has launched in sync with a new console. However, in this instance, we won’t be forced to invest in the newest hardware to get our Halo fix.
Microsoft hasn’t announced a solid release date yet for the console, other than “Holiday 2020”. It’s possible we’ll get a release date announced around E3 in June. In the meantime, though, we still have the Xbox Game Pass library to work through. Which will hopefully also help ease the transition over to the new console.
