After more than two decades of exclusivity on Sony consoles, the new version of MLB The Show will also be released on Microsoft consoles.
Formalized last year when renewing a contract between Sony Interactive Entertainment and Major League Baseball for licensing a discipline that is perceived as a real institution in North America, MLB The Show 21 will be available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and Xbox One: “This is a key time for us, as this historic series will be available to all new players. We would like to thank everyone at PlayStation, Xbox, MLB, MLB Players Association and San Diego Studio for their attendance and for getting MLB The Show to more users. We & # 39; re so excited to release MLB The Show 21 on both PlayStation and Xbox consoles! Expect a new class of legends and new ways to play, including with your friends!”

Only absent, the version Nintendo Switch by MLB The Show 21. It’s not impossible that the PlayStation Studios subsidiary does not want to work with hardware that is inferior to Sony’s and Microsoft not to bother having to make complex adjustments or having to call an external service provider such as Virtuos Games and Panic Button Games to perform the port on the Kyoto company’s hybrid machine.
