Since Microsoft announced that Xbox One title, Quantum Break, would also be coming to Windows 10, the company reaffirmed their commitment to bringing the same great games across both Xbox and Windows 10 which would also include some form of cross-buy functionality. In a new report, a number of new games have been touted as the next Xbox exclusive games to come to Windows 10.

According to WPDang, new rumours have surfaced in regards to Microsoft’s gaming plans for Windows 10 claiming that the company is set to release a version of Forza Motorsport 6 for PC exclusively to the Windows Store. This is all part of a strategy to further bolster Windows 10 gaming, with the Windows Store becoming an exclusive outlet for Microsoft games, like Origin is for Electronic Arts, and Uplay is for Ubisoft.

In addition to Forza Motorsport 6, the site also claims that, via unnamed sources, Gears of War 4, Scalebound, and previously unannounced game, Forza Horizon 3 will all be making their way to Windows 10 as well as Xbox One.

If Microsoft is set to follow suit, chances are all pre-orders for the upcoming games will likely come with cross-buy, like with Quantum Break, whose digital pre-orders bag players the Windows 10 copy for free.

Take this information with a pinch of salt, however, as none of this has been confirmed yet.

With all this talk of cross platform compatibility, cross buying, and more, all eyes are on Microsoft to really impress at E3 later this year, if not before.
