Microsoft: no plans to release more Xbox exclusives on Nintendo Switch or PS4

Photo by James Bareham / The Verge Xbox fans were surprised earlier this year when Nintendo thanked “our friends at Microsoft” for making Cuphead on Switch a reality, and earlier this week Microsoft also revealed it will publish Ori and the Blind Forest Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch.

This means DayZ is no longer banned for sale in Australia and will be able to be released at retail for PS4 and Xbox One later this year as planned.
