The Medium, the only next-gen Xbox Series X/S exclusive game currently on the market, is coming to the PlayStation 5.
The ESRB has rated Bloober Team's bizarre thriller The Medium for PS5. The developer signed a timed-exclusivity deal with Microsoft and sometime soon the only next-gen Xbox game will be a cross-platform release.
Remember that Microsoft has avoided pushing first-party next-gen exclusives so far in an effort to allow cross-compatibility between generations--a strategy that Sony is now following after it said it "believed in generations." That's a big reason why there aren't many Xbox Series X/S exclusives out in the wild.
Bloober Team has previously said next-gen hardware is required for The Medium's innovative dual-reality system, which renders two scenes simultaneously on the screen and can be taxing on the CPU and GPU.
Deep Silver parent company Koch Media recently signed a deal to publish and release physical editions of The Medium, and the ESRB listing reflects this partnership. Expect to see The Medium's PlayStation 5 announcement and retail launch date at the Koch Primetime event on June 11 at 3PM EST.
The next Xbox Series X exclusives are set to launch soon with Microsoft Flight Simulator (Summer 2021) and Stalker 2 (late 2021).
