There may be a number of Xbox One titles coming to the PC Windows 10. If a new speculation is to be believed, at least five new titles may also make their way onto the PC.

Gamepur reported that the likes of “Forza Motorsport 6” and “Forza Horizon 3” may land on the Windows 10. Additionally, “Gears of War 4” and “Scalebound” may also be part of the Windows 10 roster of upcoming titles. The source is reportedly a reliable one, particularly in the field of Windows Phone and Windows OS.

Microsoft has not made any announcements related to any Windows 10 releases of Xbox One titles. But the leak comes at an interesting time, considering how Microsoft has suddenly dropped the bomb of “Quantum Break” releasing on both the Xbox One and Windows 10.

While these titles are still on the rumour mill, as mentioned, the anticipated title “Quantum Break” is already confirmed. What’s more, not only is it confirmed to be coming to the PC, but it will be Microsoft exclusive, DualShockers reported.

This means that even though “Quantum Break” is now playable o the PC, it will only be available via Microsoft. According to the source, Xbox Games Marketing Head Aaron Greenberg shared that the game will only be available via the Windows Store—even the version releasing for Windows 10.

As such, “Quantum Break” will be natively installed on to Windows 10 PCs. This may come as a disappointment to some fans who had been planning to get the PC version since its announcement. It is understandable that Microsoft would want PC games taken straight from the Windows Store rather than other digital stores.

One advantage that can be seen with the recent announcements is that the two versions will share achievements. Gamers who will play on the Xbox One and unlocks an achievement there will also get the same achievement for the Windows 10 version of “Quantum Break.”

“We’ve been busy launching all our Holiday titles, so we’ve been kind of quiet on ‘Quantum Break,’ but we’ve been working very closely with the team at Remedy, and they’re frankly making, I think, another masterpiece,” Greenberg said during the podcast with Major Nelson, as quoted by DualShockers.

“Quantum Break” had been touting a lot of new technologies and experiences with the game. And while there are games that may have recently under-delivered as far as hype goes, hopefully this will not be the case.
