PlayStation will do something it has never done before in 2021 by releasing a game on an Xbox console, according to a new report from VGC.
We haven’t seen a few limited-time exceptions in the past shifting from the initial release on PlayStation to other platforms. Both Death Stranding and Horizon Zero Dawn leaped from PS4 to PC in 2020. But this is really something else. A game released by PlayStation Studios for competing platforms at the same time as the PlayStation version.
This game MLB: The Show 21 is a baseball game in a series developed by San Diego Studio, previously only available for Sony systems and owned by SIE. Since its debut in 2006, The Show games have been released for the PlayStation 2, PSP, PS3, PlayStation Vita and PS4, but the arrival of 2021 will break that privilege drastically.
MLB: The Show 21 will include cross-platform games for PlayStation 4 and PS5 as well as Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and even Nintendo Switch on April 20, 2021. The multiplatform includes Switch, so we’ll see. This is a famous series, so it will reach more players, but this could be a good thing for American sports simulation.
