“Extra particulars to come back,” Bungie mentioned in a tweet this morning.

In idea, you’d have been in a position to play Future 2 on the PS5 and Xbox Sequence X anyway, because of backwards compatibility.

However the growth stays locked to the place you purchase it, requiring you purchase it twice to entry it elsewhere.

That mentioned, this sounds prefer it may get very messy when next-gen consoles are thrown into the combo. That’s, until Bungie devises a method so that you can switch your purchases or blows up its complete seasonal mannequin come this September, when the corporate plans to launch its official Yr three growth.

The Future information arrives after Microsoft revealed the primary Xbox Sequence X gameplay footage in the present day in a collection of trailers for third-party video games, together with Murderer’s Creed Valhalla and Madden 21.
