Games were once exclusive such as No Man's Sky, and Crash Bandicoot N-sane are getting Xbox One ports, and the port of Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice just released yesterday.

I'd love to see exclusives abolished full stop. I know they won't be because that's how systems are marketed to consumers but I would love the freedom to just play anything I want.

Lol yeah, that's a pipe dream. But it'd be cool.

Maybe it was just a case that SE thought it wouldn't sell on Xbox One, or maybe Sony secretly paid SE for timed exclusivity of a year, as seems to be the case for some games that release later on Xbox (they don't say it but the timing seems suspect), and who knows, it's been about a year, maybe one will be in the pipes soon.

Reading this article says that it relied on being successful in its initial release on the PS4/PC where over 1 million copies were sold in less than a month, then after the cancellation of Scalebound (in January) Platinum released THIS statement (in February) stating that the lack of support (Xbox sales) in Japan is the reason game won't be released on Xbox, and the real kicker is that the game only sold 184,000 copies in Japan in 7 months on the PS4.

Basically this is more than likely a **** you to MS and more importantly its fanbase for the cancellation of Scalebound.

@cboy95: Just saw this in my Twitter feed, French website reporting that the game is coming to Xbox One, anonymous source. Best not to get your hopes up but I certainly hope it happens, X-Enhanced would be awesome.

They are basically saying " De nouvelles sources nous ont confirmés qu'un portage de NieR Automata était bien en cours de développement pour Xbox One."

Translated means " New sources have confirmed Nier Automata Port in development for Xbox One"
