Is Xbox No Longer Making Consoles? Third-Party Publisher Rumors Explained

Could Xbox, the powerhouse behind iconic consoles like the Xbox Series X and S, be on the verge of exiting the console market altogether? Various rumors have also indicated that Xbox-exclusive AAA titles like Starfield could be ported to PS5.

Considering their current decision to fund Xbox Game Pass by releasing smaller titles like Hi-Fi Rush to other platforms instead of increasing the base price for the service, there may be some truth to these seemingly baseless rumors.

Is Xbox done making consoles?

No, Microsoft won’t stop making Xbox consoles in the near future, as the Xbox Series X and S will continue to be produced as normal. However, if various reports are to be believed, the company is looking to change its business strategy.

Xbox is allegedly looking to release many of its exclusive first-party games such as Hi-Fi Rush, Gears of War, and Starfield on other platforms, including its console competitor the PS5. This has led to speculation that Xbox will be exiting the console race altogether, instead focusing on its Game Pass service rather than physical console platforms.

Amidst all the chaos, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer has reassured fans with a tweet that states that a business update event is set for next week. Fans will soon learn more about the future of Xbox and their vision during this event.

What are the Xbox third-party publisher rumors?

Higher officials at Xbox have often shared their vision of making sure that the company’s games can be played on every screen that can play them. This means that Game Pass eventually becoming available on more consoles outside of Xbox could be in Microsoft’s future.

However, game exclusivity results in increased console sales. This is a major reason why the PS5 has been outselling the Xbox consoles by a large margin, so Xbox losing exclusivity to a number of titles would likely result in a decrease in console sales. Rumors suggest that games like Starfield and even the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Great Circle may be playable on the PS5 in the future.
