All Four Xbox Exclusives Heading to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation Revealed

Last week Microsoft revealed four Xbox exclusives would be heading to PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch platforms.

At the time all four games were not revealed, though an unexpected Xbox Blog post confirms they’re Hi-Fi Rush, Pentiment, Grounded, and Sea of Thieves.

Today we are announcing that four fan-favorite Xbox games will be coming to Nintendo Switch and Sony platforms this spring. The studios that built these celebrated games have drawn on their multi-platform experience to open the worlds they created to even more players and communities.  

  • Pentiment from Obsidian Entertainment, a truly unique, critically acclaimed, and award-winning narrative adventure game with a striking visual style inspired by history itself will be coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch on February 22.   
  • Hi-Fi RUSH, the award-winning and beloved rhythm-based action game where the world syncs to the music from Tango Gameworks/Bethesda Softworks will be coming to PlayStation 5 on March 19 at midnight UTC, with pre-purchase available on PlayStation 5 digital storefronts on February 22.  
  • Grounded – also from Obsidian Entertainment – a co-op survival adventure phenomenon that has welcomed 20 million players into the backyard, will be coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and Nintendo Switch on April 16. Cross play will be supported across Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC.   
  • Sea of Thieves, the shared world adventure game from Rare, will be coming to PlayStation 5 on April 30 – and will be available to wishlist by PlayStation 5 players starting tomorrow, February 22. Having built a passionate community of more than 35 million players from around the world, the support of cross play for Xbox, PlayStation and PC will allow players to experience epic pirate adventures with friends on more platforms. 

These titles join franchises like MinecraftCall of DutyOverwatch and Diablo – which already reach players and fans on multiple platforms – and we’re excited for more players to experience these worlds and stories on more platforms.   

Whether it’s Nintendo Switch and PlayStation players surviving in the backyard together in Grounded, or PlayStation players getting to live a pirate’s life in Sea of Thieves, with cross-play, these multiplayer titles available will bring more people together and continue to grow their communities of players.

Following the reveal, preorders went live for Hi-Fi Rush, Pentiment, and Sea of Thieves. Those interested will be able to purchase Hi-Fi Rush for $29.99, or $39.99 for the deluxe edition. PlayStation Plus subscribers will also receive an additional 10 percent off. Pentiment comes in at just $19.99. Finally, a price for Sea of Thieves was not revealed, but PlayStation features were.

Some may notice the lack of Hi-Fi Rush on Nintendo Switch. This was among the first games rumored, with a distinct red shirt players assumed indicated a Nintendo Switch release. Insider Nate the Hate mentioned it was ultimately shelved, whereas Tom Henderson noted it would release for Nintendo Switch 2 instead.
