Many, Many More Major Xbox Games Are Being Plotted for PS5 1

In the coming days, Microsoft will host its big Xbox Showcase, where it’ll try to shift the conversation away from the negativity that has circled the brand ever since it controversially shuttered Tango Gameworks and Arkane Austin earlier this year. While this will likely harbour huge news for those already invested in the Redmond firm’s ecosystem, PlayStation fans may want to tune in as well.

While we’d be surprised if the Windows maker announced any ports during its presser, the reality is that as part of an internal initiative codenamed Project Latitude, it will be bringing a lot of its titles to PS5 – and so while it may take a while for the conversions to materialise, you can probably watch assured knowing a handful of the first-party software announced will eventually transition across to Sony’s system.

In fact, while major releases like Fable and a new Gears of War are currently not under consideration, The Verge is reporting that several others are. That includes a remake of Halo: Combat Evolved, as we noted previously, but also extends to Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition, Age of Mythology: Retold, Starfield, a new DOOM game, and the recently released Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2.

Microsoft always said that it was taking a wait and see approach with regards to future ports, and it was keeping a close eye on the success of Sea of Thieves in particular. Perhaps unsurprisingly, that title has rocketed up the sales charts since launching on PS5, and subsequently we can probably mark that down as a massive success.

Additional speculation suggests the aforementioned aren’t the only titles in-development for PS5, and releases like Indiana Jones and the Great Circle, Microsoft Flight Simulator 2024, and even Forza Horizon could eventually find themselves available on Sony’s format. It’s a big change from what we’ve come to know, but it seems like you can expect a lot more Xbox games on PlayStation moving forwards.
