Multiple sources claim that Microsoft is exploring the idea of bringing some games from its first party Xbox catalog to PS5 and Nintendo Switch. During the latest episode of Giant Bomb’s Game Mess Mornings, host Jeff Grubb, who is known for his connections within the game industry, mentioned an Xbox title that he believes may be released on both platforms as part of the Microsoft’s future publishing strategy. Additionally, Game File reporter Stephen Totilo stated that he’s heard similar things.

The list of first party Xbox titles that are rumored to be arrive on PS5 and Nintendo Switch can be seen below.
- Sea of Thieves
- Hi-Fi Rush
The first party Xbox game both Grubb and Totilo mentioned is Rare’s Sea of Thieves. Grubb claims he’s heard from his sources that the pirate themed action adventure game is of the games that Xbox may be planning to bring to PS5 and Nintendo Switch. He said that when he first started hearing these rumors, he recalled hearing about Sea of Thieves making its way to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation.
According to Grubb, Microsoft is trying to alter its strategy, and that we should expect more of this in future, suggesting that more first party Xbox titles will follow suit. Meanwhile, Totilo stated that he had only heard about Sea of Thieves getting a PlayStation release, possibly in early 2024, and hasn’t heard anything about a Nintendo Switch version. He had reached out to an Xbox representative, who declined to comment on the matter.
As for Hi-Fi Rush, a known leaker who goes by the name of lolilolailo on gaming enthusiast forum Reset Era stated that Hi-Fi Rush will only be ported to the PS5. They said that, while a Switch version was in development, plans appear to have changed, as the game will now only arrive on the PS5. They also doubted that the Switch hardware would be capable of running Hi-Fi Rush. Perhaps Microsoft will eventually port it to the Switch successor. Only time will tell whether that’s the case, however.
