You don't need a crystal ball to see into the future of gaming and predict that things are about to change in a big way. The long-gestated acquisition of Activision Blizzard King was the catalyst that relit the fires of the console wars, but safe to say, things might not be going in Microsoft's favour

We've seen a slow trickle of former Xbox exclusives change sides, with the likes of Hi-Fi Rush and Sea of Thieves already getting a makeover. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has promised us there will be "no fundamental change" to the way things work, but something tells us that might not be the case.

Insider claims ALL Xbox games are coming to PlayStation

Alongside Jez Corden making a cryptic tweet about the state of Xbox's first-party library, it seems he's gotten even looser-lipped on Discord. When someone suggested that Forza Horizon and the next Gears of War will be coming to PlayStation, Corden said, "Everything is going yo."

Corden apparently said on his Discord that Xbox is moving toward a Steam-like platform that will be cheaper, offer sales, and work closer with devs. In terms of hardware, it will be more niche, like Steam Deck, with Corden reportedly saying, "I don't think they expect to ever grow in hardware."

The big one is a mention that ALL Xbox first-party games are coming to PlayStation. While Sony has made bank of its first-party games like The Last of Us and God of War, Xbox has done the same with Halo and the likes. Still, Corden has something of a patchy track record and has been known for straight-up trolling us in the past.

We know that Sony has slowly been drip-feeding some of its giants to PC, but it's far from Marvel's Spider-Man 2 landing on Xbox. This would be the big deal-breaker, and let's remember Spencer's previous promises about a fully multi-platform ecosystem, saying, "That's not the plan today." 

There have been swirling rumours that Starfield would be rocketing toward the PS5, but it has been repeatedly shot down. Then again, with its recent struggles and languishing in the shadow of Fallout's multi-platform success, it could do with a boost in popularity right now. 

With Xbox's next big showcase coming on June 9, we're expecting a major reveal of what's next for Call of Duty. However, could this be used to bury the news that the Green Team is facing a fully multi-platform future? We were going to anyway, but now, we'll definitely be tuning in on June 9.
