Report: Microsoft bringing its first-party line-up to PlayStation

Games and tech giant Microsoft is reportedly considering bringing some of its biggest first-party IP to PlayStation.

XboxEra reports that Bethesda's Starfield is being pencilled in for a PlayStation 5 launch, while there have been rumours that the likes of Sea of Thieves and Hi-Fi Rush could also be heading to other platforms.

Meanwhile, The Verge claims that the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Great Circle might be coming to Sony's hardware.

Finally, Jeff Grubb from Giant Bomb says that he has heard that Gears of War is being considered for a PlayStation 5 release.

All of this is all rumoured and there is nothing official yet from Microsoft. We've reached out for comment.

Given that Microsoft appears to be heading towards more of a platform rather than hardware focus, this news – as outlandish as it seems – isn't as insane as you might first think.
