All future games published by Microsoft Studios will support Xbox Play Anywhere, meaning they will be available across console and PC.

Though it may not be much of a surprise, Microsoft confirmed this in a blog post¬†detailing the new Anniversary update coming to Xbox One and PC. Here is the exact wording: “Every new title published from Microsoft Studios will support Xbox Play Anywhere and will be easily accessible in the Windows Store.”

Xbox Play Anywhere allows you to buy a game (digitally) on Xbox One and get the PC version free or vice versa. Additionally, your progress moves with you between platforms, including game saves and achievements. In addition to releasing PC games on the Windows Store, Xbox boss Phil Spencer recently pledged that Microsoft will put games on Steam again.

The feature, which was announced at E3 last month, kicks off in September this year with the launch of Mega Man designer Keiji Inafune’s ReCore. Other 2016 games that make use of Xbox Play Anywhere include Forza Horizon 3¬†(September 27) and Gears of War 4 (October 11).

Halo fans may be especially happy about this news, as it would seem to confirm that Halo 6 will come to PC.
