Microsoft revealed its Xbox Play Anywhere initiative back at E3 last month. It lets you buy participating cross-platform games once and play them on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. Microsoft is planning to bring all of its future first-party games to Windows 10 and Xbox One as part of the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative. Microsoft is now planning to launch Xbox Play Anywhere on September 13th.
The new option will require the Windows 10 Anniversary Update on the PC side, and the summer Xbox One update for the console. Games listed in the Xbox Store will include a Play Anywhere logo to indicate they work with the scheme, and Microsoft has a number of titles arriving later this year that will support Play Anywhere.
Currently the service is mainly focused on Microsoft‘s first-party releases, but the company expects that to expand to more third-party-developed games in the future. Here’s the full list of supported titles so far:
Gears of War 4 by The Coalition, Splash Damage, Rod Fergusson
Forza Horizon 3 by Playground Games
ReCore by Armature Studio, Comcept
Sea of Thieves by Rare, Gregg Mayles
Halo Wars 2 by 343 Industries, Creative Assembly
Scalebound by Platinum Games, Yusuke Miyata
Killer Instinct Season 3 by Iron Galaxy
State of Decay 2 by Undead Labs
Ark: Survival Evolved by Studio Wildcard, Virtual Basement, Instinct Games, Efecto Studios
Cuphead by Studio MDHR
We Happy Few by Compulsion Games
Crackdown 3 by Sumo Digital Reagent Games, Cloudgine
