Sony's MLB The Show Is No Longer A PlayStation Exclusive

However, nothing ever matched MLB The Show. Sony also did not suggest doing the same for any other current exclusive PlayStation series.

Sony, Major League Baseball, and the MLBPA have announced a multi-year extension to their current deal.

"The historic expansion of the long-standing partnerships will bring MLB The Show, for the first time, to additional console platforms beyond PlayStation platforms as early as 2021". That said, both Microsoft and Nintendo have opened doors to each other and, should MLB The Show 21 prove to still be a success, Sony can perhaps be convinced to not be so exclusive, at least not too much.

The Show has been developed as a Sony-exclusive title by first-party developer SIE San Diego since 2006.

SIE's San Diego Studio has been developing officially licensed Major League Baseball video games exclusively on PlayStation platforms for more than 20 years, starting with Major League Baseball & # 39; 98 in the original PlayStation. Could Sony reach the extreme of launching MLB The Show on Xbox, thus creating a tangled love triangle of who publishes on which consoles? Its main licensed competitor on other platforms has been RBI Baseball. It even looks like Nintendo will be getting in on the action so it's an excellent time to be a baseball fan.

Xbox players have long be deprived of a great baseball games.

The game, announced in late October, will feature Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez (El Mago) as the cover star and is set to release on March 17 2020.
