Online gaming publication VG247 has published an insightful article with Mike Ybarra, vice president of Xbox. Ybarra says that Microsoft is extremely open to more cross-platform play on the Nintendo Switch with future titles. Things like cross-platform play are in the works with Rocket League and obviously Minecraft, so the more the merrier.
“It’s more about gamer choice, more about making an IP on our platform last longer. I don’t care about where they play, I just want people to have fun playing games because that’s just better for the industry. The demands of consumers and developers have changed. People are like, ‘we want all of our gamers in one multiplayer pool together, playing’. We totally agree with that. If any developer wants to have that conversation… Valve is right down the street from us, Nintendo is too – they’re like a block from us. We’re having these discussions as developers come up, and we’re completely open to that.”
