Microsoft has confirmed that every future game published by Microsoft Studios – we have high hopes for Halo 6 – will support Xbox Play Anywhere which means the game will be cross-buy cross-play on Microsoft Windows 10 and Xbox One.

Xbox Play Anywhere is scheduled to officially roll out this September with ReCore and will support all Microsoft exclusives including Forza Horizon 3, Scalebound, Gears of War 4, and others. While Microsoft has yet to confirm this, but this essentially means that the unannounced Halo 6, Forza Motorsport 7, and other first-party exclusives by Microsoft will launch both on Xbox One as well as Windows 10.
