While the next generation of console gaming is nearly here, things are changing. In an interview with MCVUK, Matt Booty, Head of Xbox Game Studios, explained that unlike past console cycles, owners of current-generation hardware won't immediately be cut off from playing the new games in development at Xbox Game Studios. This cross-gen period will last for the next two years (or through 2021) and will include.
"As our content comes out over the next year, two years, all of our games, sort of like PC, will play up and down that family of devices," Booty explains. "We want to make sure that if someone invests in Xbox between now and (Series X) that they feel that they made a good investment and that we're committed to them with content."
So, if you're an Xbox One owner who doesn't intend to immediately upgrade to new hardware, you're going to be covered as the next two years of games will still be playable on your Xbox One. Xbox Series X is set to release in the holiday period later this year, with Halo Infinite launching alongside it.
