Sony (and their SIE San Diego Studio) alongside Major League Baseball (MLB) and the Major League Baseball Players Association jointly announced that their MLB The Show series will be coming to other consoles.
Since it’s debut in 1997, MLB The Show has been a PlayStation exclusive game appearing on the PS1, PS2, PS3 and most recently the PS4.
There have been a few baseball games that have been released over the years but nothing that is to the calibre of Sony’s MLB The Show.
This news is especially great for Xbox fans because it means that there will finally be a great baseball game on Microsoft’s console.
While Sony didn’t specify what platforms an upcoming version MLB The Show would be coming to, it will be coming at least for Sony’s PS4 and upcoming PS5. But it could be coming to both Xbox and Switch consoles.
Head of Xbox Phil Spencer did retweet the new of Sony’s baseball game going multi-platform, making a slight indicator that we may see it on Project Scarlett (set for release in 2020) and Xbox One consoles.
Beyond the multi-platform news, MLB, MLBPA and Sony extended their partnership to continue making MLB The Show.
A future MLB The Show title is set to come to “additional console platforms” as early as 2021.”
Sony will share more details in the future.
