Riptide GP: Renegade will be released as an Xbox Play Anywhere title

Vector Unit, the developers behind the Riptide series of games, has revealed that the upcoming Riptide GP: Renegade will be an Xbox Play Anywhere title for Xbox One and Windows 10. That makes Riptide GP: Renegade on of the first in a relatively small stable of Play Anywhere titles that's sure to get much bigger in the coming months.

From Vector Unit:

Riptide GP: Renegade is going to be one of the very first third-party titles released with the "Xbox Play Anywhere" label. That means you'll be able to buy it once and you'll get it on both Xbox One and Windows 10. You'll also be able to sync your game progress. earn Xbox Achievements and Gamerscore, and play online multiplayer across both Xbox One and Windows 10. (And of course, don't forget that the Xbox One is the ONLY version that lets you play local split screen with up to SIX players!)

The announcement comes alongside an update on the game's expected release timeline, with Vector Unit noting that both the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions are now in final certification testing. While there's no solid release date set just yet, that's good news for those who are awaiting the game following delays. In any case, assuming all goes well with the certification process, we should see an official release announcement relatively soon.
