This announcement comes shortly after Microsoft announced their brand new cross-buy scheme for Xbox Series X Games, which is named Smart Delivery. Currently, it is supported by all 15 first-party Xbox Game Studios games. However, for third-party developers, it is an opt-in option.
“This technology empowers you to buy a game once and know that — whether you are playing it on Xbox One or Xbox Series X — you are getting the right version of that game on whatever Xbox you’re playing on,” Microsoft said.
