Microsoft Apologizes for Xbox Play Anywhere Confusion

Xbox Play anywhere

Over the past few days a cloud of confusion has spread over Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere program. Microsoft changed its description from “every new title published from Microsoft Studios” to “every new title published from Microsoft Studios that we showed onstage at E3.

This meant that games we saw at E3 2016 were the only ones coming to Xbox Play Anywhere program. Microsoft has issued the following statement:

When we unveiled Xbox Play Anywhere, we said that every new Microsoft Studios title shown at the Xbox E3 2016 Briefing will support Xbox Play Anywhere. We understand that a recent blog post didn’t specify that the only Microsoft Studios titles we’ve confirmed to date as Xbox Play Anywhere were shown at the E3 2016 Xbox briefing.

We’ve updated the blog post and apologise for any confusion

Here’s a list of Xbox One games coming to PC via Xbox Play Anywhere.

  • Gears of War 4 – Oct. 11, 2016
  • Forza Horizon 3 – Sept. 27, 2016
  • ReCore – Sept. 16, 2016
  • Sea of Thieves – Sometime in 2017
  • Halo Wars 2 – Feb. 21, 2017
  • Scalebound – Sometime in 2017
  • Killer Instinct Season 3 – Available Now
  • State of Decay 2 – Sometime in 2017
  • Ark: Survival Evolved – Now on Xbox Game Preview
  • Cuphead – Sometime in 2016
  • We Happy Few – Jul. 26, 2016 on Xbox Game Preview
  • Crackdown 3 – Sometime in 2017

Rest assured that Microsoft will release more games under the same program. Microsoft is going to add Xbox Play Anywhere via Windows 10 anniversary update. However, the feature will not be operational until September. Head over here for more detail on the topic.
