Windows 10 and Xbox One Buddying Up Continues

With a Microsoft press event coming at the end of the month that will be focusing on Windows 10 and Xbox One, rumors of what games that might entail are all but inevitable. So what do we have today?

Chinese site, WPDang, thinks it knows. The site listed a few titles already confirmed to becoming to Windows 10, all of which Google translated splendidly (Killer School: In the Third Quarter, Fable: The Legend, War Machine: Ultimate Edition, Regeneration Core, and of course Quantum Broken.)

Add to the list Forza Motorsport 6, the as of yet announced Forza Horizon 3, Interfax Incarnation (Or Scalebound [don’t ask me why]), and War Machine 4.

WPDang also says that all of these games will be Windows 10 store exclusive, which follows suit with what we learned just recently about Quantum Broken. That’s not only coming out simultaneously on both Xbox One and Windows 10, but anyone who purchases the console version gets the PC one for free.

2016 is shaping up to be a pretty interesting year for PC Gaming, fueled by the salt of console gamers who seem to be having issues reconciling the fact that their games might actually be coming to PC as well. But Phil Spencer’s done a great job of staunching that hemorrhaging wound.

Now let’s just hope the ports of all these Xbox One games aren’t a complete joke.

Tomb Raider: The Rise came out just fine in the end, though, and Quantum Broken has Remedy behind it. I’m a little more leery of the developers who have a very limited background, and way more leery of the games that haven’t before been on PC, notably Forza, but it’s been a while since War Machine has been on PC, too. So who knows how this is all going to shake out in the end. I’m on the edge of my seat.

Now Microsoft just needs to whip the Windows 10 store into shape to support the influx of PC gamers, who probably won’t be too happy about some of the platforms shortcomings. If they were smart they’d just turn the Xbox app into a storefront specifically for cross platform PC games.

But maybe that’s too smart for Microsoft.

P.S. I won’t be apologizing for using the Google translated names for the games throughout the article.
