Recent reports suggest a significant shift in Microsoft’s game publishing strategy. Sources indicate that Microsoft is exploring releasing several exclusive titles on multiple platforms. This move could mark a substantial change in the gaming industry.

One of the games in question is Hi-Fi Rush, which Tango Gameworks and Bethesda developed. Rumors about its release on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5 have been circulating since early January. These rumors gained traction when references to these versions were found in a recent patch.

Another title, Starfield, might also see a PlayStation 5 release. This information was shared by XboxEra and supported by insiders like NatheTheHate and Randalthor19. The release is expected after the launch of its expansion, Shattered Space.

Additionally, The Verge reported that Microsoft is considering releasing Indiana Jones and the Great Circle on PlayStation 5. This game was initially planned for multiple platforms but became an Xbox and PC exclusive after Microsoft acquired Bethesda.

Microsoft is expected to announce this new multi-platform strategy this month. This move by Microsoft could redefine its role in the gaming industry, potentially transitioning from a service provider and first-party developer to a third-party developer.
