On Thursday, Microsoft officially pressed on its first-party plans for competing platforms. In total, four games are said to be intended for this new business approach. While it is not confirmed what is planned, it seems likely that the previously reported Sea of Thieves as well as Hi-Fi Rush are going multiplatform.

Additionally, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer did address which games are not planned to hit opposing hardware. When questioned, he responded by saying “not Starfield or Indiana Jones [and the Great Circle].” Going back on the first comment, Spencer did emphasize that “just four” games are intended for this new approach. As of writing, it is undetermined if more titles are to be added to that list.

In one announcement as per Xbox president Sarah Bond, she reveals that Diablo IV is coming to Xbox Game Pass in March. You can watch the trailer in the video below:

“All of our games are always in [Xbox] Game Pass,” she says during the podcast. “And so I’m excited to announce, y’know, with the coming together of Activision Blizzard King that Activision & Blizzard games are coming to Game Pass starting with Diablo IV on March 28th which I’m super super excited to share today.” This comes after one statement that Diablo IV nor Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III would hit the service. But it was worded to be added in that year.

Furthermore, Microsoft was clear that this transition to welcoming Activision Blizzard King to its platform would not be overnight. In fact, it was clarified that the wait would be months before the first true signs of the deal would take effect on Xbox Game Pass. You can read the full report by heading here.
