Here's the statement to Eurogamer from a Microsoft spokesperson in full: "We haven't pulled any games from PlayStation. In fact, we've expanded our footprint of games that we've shipped on Sony's PlayStation since our acquisition of ZeniMax, and the first two games we shipped after closing were PlayStation 5 exclusives. We did the same thing since our closing of Minecraft as we extended the reach of that franchise.

So an MS spokesperson has responded to the Redfall news saying they "haven't pulled any games from PlayStation". Isn't that just a blatant lie? Starfield was clearly in development for PlayStation before the acquisition of Bethesda and I have serious doubts that Redfall was never in development for PlayStation.

They'd have been better to remain silent than say this.

Microsoft hasn't "pulled any games from PlayStation" following Redfall PS5 reports |

There's a difference between not releasing games on certain consoles and pulling games from a certain console. Pulling implies that the game already exists, is available to buy for the customer and then gets taken off stores. After all, you can only take something back when you gave it away previously. Microsoft has never done that to any game that was already on the Playstation store.

But since a playable and publically released version of Redfall on PS5 never existed, there's nothing to pull.

Right. I see a typical PR spin statement that confused me. Respond to Redfall article about the game being canned for PS5 in a way that seems to but doesn't actually say that never happened.
