Every single game from Microsoft’s Xbox Series X livestream is going to be on PC too

These games were announced for Xbox Series X, but they will also release on PC

Last Updated on

Microsoft just showed the world first footage games for it’s upcoming Xbox Series X next-generation console, as part of their Inside Xbox live stream titled “First-Look Xbox Series X Gameplay”, and there are certainly some nice looking games in the lineup they showed.

I don’t think this collection of games particularly helped sell the vision of their new console, all the games featured will be available on their current-gen Xbox One, but with longer load times and some of the graphical settings dialled back. Perhaps not the most compelling pitch for a new console. To my eye, a lot of the games look like great games, but I’m not sure they’re games that many players will need or want to upgrade their hardware for just to get better performance.

Beyond the world of console releases, every single game featured in the show has also now been confirmed for release on PC. Ideal for anyone who prefers to play on PC, and upgrades their hardware on a schedule that suits them, rather than in sync with console generations.

No doubt these will be some of the games that Xbox Series X early adopters will be playing on their shiny new console, but it’s nice to know that players on PC will be able to play all of these games too.

Here are the games, and the confirmation that they are going to PC.
