On Thursday, Feb. 15, Microsoft is set to reveal updates on the state of the Xbox business and the possibility of Xbox exclusives going multiplatform. The reveal will come in the form of a podcast featuring Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer, Xbox president Sarah Bond, and head of Xbox Game Studios Matt Booty.

This special edition of the Official Xbox Podcast will be available to watch on YouTube or listen to wherever podcasts are available, going live on Thursday at 3 p.m. EST/12 p.m. PST. The discussion is expected to address rumors and reports about various Xbox-exclusive games possibly making their way to PlayStation and Nintendo consoles.

Last week, Spencer hinted at concrete details being shared during the event, acknowledging the concerns of the gaming community. Despite the potential for multiplatform releases, it is reported that the future of Xbox will still include a hardware component, with Spencer assuring Microsoft employees that there are no plans to stop making Xbox consoles, hinting at a strategy that involves “multiple kinds of devices.”

If franchises like Halo, Gears of War, Forza, and Fable are indeed going to PlayStation and Nintendo consoles, it would mark a significant shift from Xbox’s past. More details on the company’s vision for the future of Xbox are expected to be shared during the Thursday event.
