    Default Crackdown 3, quantum break and scalebound could hit pc

    Microsoft's head of Xbox has admitted there's a small chance its recently-announced raft of Xbox One exclusives could one day crop up on PC.

    Speaking to PCGamer following the company's renewed interest in PC gaming after the launch of Windows 10, Phil Spencer acknowledged the likes of Scalebound, Crackdown 3 and Quantum Break may one day appear on PC, but the focus right now is on getting the Xbox One versions out the door.

    “In the case of things like Scalebound or Crackdown or Quantum Break, you know, just to be completely honest with you, we started those games before we really looked at expanding into Windows in the way that I wanted to bring as part of becoming head of Xbox,” he said.

    "Going to those teams mid-cycle and saying: ‘Hey, by the way, I want to add a platform,’ didn’t really feel like necessarily the best way to end up with the best result for the game. They had a path that they were on. It’s not to say those games could never come to Windows, but right now we’re on the path to finish the great games that they’ve started, and I want that to be the case. These games are on a path, whereas with, like, Halo Wars 2 I had the opportunity from the beginning, when we’re sitting down with the studio, to say, ‘Here’s the target. Here’s what we wanna go do.'"

    Spencer went on to give the example of the Gears of War remake as one that was also announced for both platforms at the start, as thinking about the potential for higher framerates and multiplayer modes meant it seemed like a no-brainer from the start.

    He closed out the interview by stressing not all franchises will work on all platforms, and so some games will just be available on either PC or Xbox One rather than both. But with the plan being to slowly build the Windows games portfolio, he's not prepared to rule anything out.

    Yeah, it'd be great to see Alan Wake again in a new game!
