Remember back in 2019, end of august? (~11 months ago)

"Microsoft Has No Further Plans To Bring First-Party Games to Other Platforms"


"Microsoft has brought a number of their first party offerings to the Switch, with Ori and the Blind Forest just confirmed yesterday. What else can we expect Microsoft to bring over? According to a statement from Microsoft that was obtained by GamesIndustry.biz, there are no plans for more titles as of right now." -gonintendo.com

"The past year has been an exciting time for us as we have more than doubled the internal creative teams making up Xbox Game Studios. As these new studios transitioned in, we were aware of some existing commitments to other platforms and will honor them. However, going forward these new studios will focus on making games for our platforms. We have no plans to further expand our exclusive first party games to other consoles. We continue to believe deeply in cross play and progression of games with the right flexibility for developers to insure a fair and fun experience." - Xbox.


Theres also Wasteland 3 & psychonauts 2.

No clue what deal MS has for Cuphead or why it releases on PS but Wasteland and Psychonauts simply happen because MS bought them after the games had been in development already and then MS doesn't take it away from other platforms.

That's a standard PR response. Nintendo for example commented saying they had no plans for a Majora's Mask on 3DS a few days before they announced Majora's Mask 3DS.

They announce their plans when they think the time is right.

Doubt it. But why not bring it to PS5 on launch date?

This game is basically in every platform (even Tesla cars Lol) but not PS4.

You're doubting the fact that it appeared on PSN?

As for release, why wait for ps5? It's not like launching with PS5 gives this extra wings.



That would be pretty good, both it and Ori are two nice indies that could make their way to the PS.



Very interesting, this would mark the first time Microsoft bring one of their games to a PlayStation System that wasn't announced before they bought the respective studio.

Well unless you count Minecraft Dungeons, but I view the Minecraft IP a bit differently.

Wonder what else could be in the pipeline to make the jump to PlayStation. Ori?

The Switch port of Cuphead was actually spearheaded by Microsoft, not the Cuphead developers, so will be interesting to see if Microsoft approached them again asking if they wanted to make a PlayStation port.

Cuphead isn't first party, Microsoft don't own the IP or the studio.

IIRC it was made 'lifetime' exclusive because Microsoft gave them some funds to finish the title, Cuphead on Switch isn't actually Published by Microsoft either so I feel like they only ported it to test the waters for Xbox Live on Switch...But Xbox Live never came, Lol (Cuphead was the first game planned to have Xbox Live on Switch).

I'm thinking Microsoft either released them from their contract or Cuphead on PS4 will come with the DLC which would get around it, technicality...but it is possible Microsoft asked them to port it to PS4 like they did with Switch but Idk why they'd bother unless it has XBL integration.

I mean...there's nothing saying that it can't release on the PS4 and then launch on the PS5. Since it is readily available on so many devices, it's not going to be a system seller on any system it releases on.
