You are probably right. I guess they are going for the hardcore that don't already have a gaming PC.

EDIT: Eh. Who am I kidding? I'll probably preorder it right away. :P

How is the crazy Microsoft parity BS clause still a thing in 2017?!

Literally blocking game releases on your platform seems like a pretty dumb idea given your market position.

Oh well, good to hear a Switch version is likely in the works. It's a pretty damn fun(ny) party game that would really suit the system.

Microsoft's oft-criticised parity clause is still coming under fire from independent developers. Gang Beasts creator Boneloaf is the latest to bemoan the restrictions to releasing on Xbox One.

Not even sure I'd consider Halo Wars 2 to be "big budget".

http://ca.ign.com/articles/2017/08/1...-party-problem

These days in gaming, it’s very easy for perception to become reality.

But in the case of Xbox’s perceived first-party problem, there’s some truth to it. Scalebound? Canceled. Fable Legends? Canceled. Lionhead? Shuttered. Press Play? Closed down. Ion? Done. Granted, cancellations are a normal part of the games business, but when they’re that public and that high-profile, it reinforces the negative perception.

The latest symptom of the issue is that Xbox has exactly one AAA-level exclusive this fall – Forza Motorsport 7 – in the wake of Crackdown 3’s lukewarm reception at E3 and subsequent delay into 2018. (Cuphead, impressive as it looks, is an ID@Xbox title that won’t get the same marketing push or budget as Microsoft’s higher-priced offerings.) And for all of 2017, there will be just two big-budget first-party exclusives, the seventh Forza Motorsport joining February's Halo Wars 2.

And because you can play Forza on PC I wouldn't even call it an exclusive. My consoles (other than Switch) sure are collecting dust these days.
