Gamers are still on cloud nine even after a month since E3 conference was concluded, with numerous game developers announcing new games and updates for existing video games such as "Halo 6", which is one of the biggest highlights during the E3 was during Microsoft's conference. During E3, Microsoft announced that Xbox Play Anywhere program will allow user to buy a game once and will be able to play it on Windows 10 PC and Xbox One.

With this new, fans of Xbox One compatible game were pretty stoked, especially that "Halo 6" the upcoming newest instalment of the "Halo" video games franchise might possibly be compatible on Windows 10 PC. But apparently Microsoft was not clear enough on the games part of Xbox Play Anywhere, especially with the anticipated "Halo 6" video game.

In a blog post by Microsoft, it cleared things up that the games included on the Xbox Play Anywhere program includes games that were shown this year on E3, thus excluding indefinitely "Halo 6". Fans are still hoping though that in the future when more details about "Halo 6" has been announced that it will also be included on the Xbox Play Anywhere.

Still, there have been reports that "Halo 6" will be included in the Xbox Play Anywhere despite "Halo 6" not being shown during E3 because, according to Gamespot, the release of "Halo 5" free Forge Tools on Windows 10 could possibly open the doorway for "Halo 6" to be available for PC. The sure video games that are included on the Xbox Play Anywhere are the following:

  • Forza Horizon 3
  • Gears of War 4
  • Halo Wars 2
  • ReCore
  • Scalebound
  • Sea of Thieves
  • State of Decay 2
  • We Happy Few

As for Microsoft's biggest rival, PlayStation there has yet to be an announcement whether they will also have games that will be compatible with PC. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more "Halo 6" news and updates!
