It appears we are already starting to see the effects of the ZeniMax Media acquisition by Microsoft as Deathloop was previously a Sony PlayStation exclusive. Xbox had expressed an interest in bringing the game over to their platforms as soon as possible and it would appear Sony’s exclusivity deal has now elapsed after one year.
The game will also be available to PlayStation Plus Extra subscribers through the Game Catalog from September 20. As one of last year’s best games, Deathloop will be a solid addition to both platforms, which is a win-win situation for fans.
Console exclusivity, from the looks of it, is coming towards an inevitable end as both Sony and Microsoft have expressed interest in making their games more accessible across multiple platforms. These platforms also include mobile, which appears to be the most profitable and exciting frontier for games.
As cloud technology improves over time, both Microsoft and Sony will look to provide players across the globe seamless gaming experience across a variety of hardware.
