Microsoft have revealed that all games they publish in the future will now be part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program, meaning you get two copies for the price of one.
On the Windows Blog , corporate vice president Yusuf Mehdi writes, "every new title published from Microsoft Studios will support Xbox Play Anywhere and will be easily accessible in the Windows Store."
This means we're definitely getting the next Halo game. Well done, everyone.
Play Anywhere was introduced at this year's E3, though we saw it used previously with games like Quantum Break. The promotion allows players to buy games on one platform and get copies for both. Saves and Achievements also carry between Windows 10 and Xbox One, allowing you to switch between your monitor and TV as it suits you.
ReCore is first up, with the Play Anywhere release coming on September 13. Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4 and Cuphead are coming later.

What itches my head is what's stopping the people from selling the PC code in gray market sites. And although most of the top games sold on consoles are multi - platform titles, what incentive will Microsoft provide console peasants in sticking with Xbox? Even now PCMR is filled qith posts that people are happy to get Xbox titles and they'll ditch Xbox.
