Microsoft to bring first-party Xbox gaming efforts over to PC

It appears that Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella has a broader and more aligned vision for the future of Xbox and Windows, where first-party efforts from Microsoft Studios would be shared between both platforms. The synergy wouldn’t stop there, however, as Nadella also plans to incorporate¬†mobile and new categories like HoloLens into one integrated play.


Nadella made an important address to his company employees via an email today, in which he revealed the company’s brand new missions statement.

Our mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.

He went on to state that the company’s broader vision for Windows would extent to its Xbox brand, with first-party console titles becoming available across a broad range of Windows-based devices, including PC, console, mobile, and even HoloLens.

We will pursue our gaming ambition as part of this broader vision for Windows and increase its appeal to consumers. We will bring together Xbox Live and our first-party gaming efforts across PC, console, mobile and new categories like HoloLens into one integrated play.

Whether any of this means that we’ll be seeing games like Halo 5 and Quantum Break on PC someday is anyone’s guess, though Nadella does seem to imply something along those lines in his corporate email. With the announcement of PC versions of Killer Instinct, Sea of Thieves, and Gears of War: Ultimate, the software giant does appear committed to establishing a long-standing synergy between its platforms.
