Ryse: The Latest Xbox One Launch Game To Hit PC


One of the reasons that people bought an Xbox One at launch over the PS4 (or in addition to the PS4) last year was because of the launch titles. Nowhere else could you play games like Ryse: Son of Rome and Dead Rising 3, right? Well, that has become a decreasingly-true statement, as Ryse has followed the suit of Dead Rising 3 and is headed to the PC, according to the game’s Twitter account.

More from Microsoft

Perhaps it’s the beginning of a new trend for the Xbox One? New Xbox head Phil Spencer has been quoted to be creating a “renewed focus on Windows and PC gaming” during this year’s GDC. Since the Xbox One does use a PC-like x86 architecture, it could mean a great deal of Xbox One exclusives in the future could come to the PC, should the company continue to push for it. Dead Rising 3 and Ryse could be shining examples of pushing a new console while supporting a light game market in company-exclusive PC content.

With that in mind, the first thing Xbox fans will be focusing their wishes on, after this Ryse to PC news, would be for the Halo Xbox One entries to come to personal computers. While the door seems to be shut on the Halo: The Master Chief Collection right now, who knows what the future will entail. We thought Xbox One launch titles would stay exclusive, and now look at where we are just 9 months later!

Hopefully everyone will be taking this news in stride, and take it for the positive aspects of what PC gaming can br-

Oh well. Ryse is currently available only on the Xbox One, but expect that to change in the future.
