Along with this, a new report from The Verge now claims the first two "Xbox exclusives" appearing on "rival platforms" post-acquisition will be the Tango Gameworks' title Hi-Fi RUSH and Obsidian Entertainment's Pentiment. Additionally, Rare's Sea of Thieves game is expected to follow at a "later date" and more is also "under consideration".

Microsoft is also currently planning to launch Sea of Thieves on non-Xbox platforms later this year, with other first-party titles also under consideration."

Rumours about Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves coming to other platforms have been making headlines for a few months now. Some other Xbox games rumouerd to be coming to other platforms include certain Bethesda games like Indiana Jones and Starfield.

The business update this week will follow Microsoft laying off 1,900 Xbox employees (including Bethesda and Activision Blizzard employees) last month. Crash and Spyro developer Toys for Bob has also reportedly scaled back operations.
