Following the recent announcement of Ori And The Blind Forest for the Nintendo Switch, there have been requests for the sequel to also make the transition across to the hybrid system in the future. So, what are the chances of this actually happening?
Microsoft previously stated it had no plans to further expand first-party exclusives to other consoles, and during an interview with MCV, Xbox GM Aaron Greenberg was eager to reinforce the fact that Ori And The Will Of The Wisps would launch exclusively on Xbox One and PC.
Our plans with Ori and the Will of the Wisps is to launch exclusively on Xbox One and on the PC.
As for how the original game made it across to the Switch in the first place – Greenberg explained Moon Studios (the team behind this title) simply asked and Microsoft was happy to cooperate. So hopefully there's a chance the sequel can make the Switch as well.
We understand their desire to bring that game to Switch, and in this particular case we were happy to support them. And we think that makes sense for the original Ori.
