Xbox One and PC cross-platform possibility discussed by Microsoft’s Phil Spencer

Talk of a cross-platform play reality between the Xbox and the PC has been brought up many times over the years, not the least of which was last week when Ausgamers posed a question on the topic to Microsoft’s Phil Spencer. Among several other questions, Spencer was asked if Xbox One and PC cross-platform play could be a reality in the future, and Spencer indicates the answer is yes.

He shied away from giving outright confirmation, however, responding instead the he’s “not allowed to leak things,” followed by a smile, according to the Ausgamers interviewer. He goes on to detail the notion of Xbox and PC cross-platform play, however, giving a couple examples that touch on different aspects of how cross-platform play could take place, summing it all up with:

“This connected ecosystem across all the different devices is definitely where I think the future of gaming is going; you don’t have to do it as a developer, but you have the capability and I think a system like Xbox Live across all those screens where you know who someone is and who their friends are, what their Achievements are and their progression is really critical to that.”

Shadow Run for the Xbox 360 allowed PC gamers to play with Xbox 360 gamers, something that did not see as much success as had been hoped for, but that had demonstrated cross-platform play in action. There was also Skulls of the Shogun, he mentioned, which is available on multiple platforms with cloud-centric game saves, allowing gamers to play on different devices.

Spencer also talked about the Achievement system, among other things, confirming that a change will be seen when the Xbox One launches, though he didn’t go into detail. According to Spencer, Microsoft is looking to lay out more information later on this month, and that we’ll see an “‘expansion’ of what Achievements are.” Some details were already provided this past summer, however.
