Outlast Released on Xbox One Silently

A lot of controversy on today’s release of the popular PS4 and PC game Outlast surrounding the Microsoft [email protected] self publishing scheme.

Apparently, Microsoft have said they will only release games on Xbox if they are released on other consoles at the same time or after Xbox releases, how ever, Microsoft has now stated they will do this on a case by case basis with developers who can not meet the [email protected] criteria. As most of you will know Outlast was released early this year for PS4 and in 2013 for PC, an got some smashing reviews. Now released to Xbox One along with its DLC Whistler blower, opening the game up to a new audience of gamers.

No idea why there was no announcement of the game coming to Xbox One, but hopefully some Microsoft fans will be pleased to give this game a go. It’s epic and overall creepiness deserves to be enjoyed on all platforms.

  1. That’s really bizarre. Seems strange that they wouldn’t make something of the release with an indie title that’s this big of a deal…

    it’s really quite odd isnt it,

  3. The whole indie thing on Xbox throws me a bit to be honest. I don’t quite understand exactly why [email protected] is even a thing and Microsoft didn’t just stick with the same scheme they used on the 360.

    This whole generation is a bit off if you ask me. Profitable, but off 😉

    It’s obviously a money thing though isn’t it, I mean Outlast is such a hit that they just needed to jump on the bandwagon, or so it seems, and maybe they did it quietly because they know that [email protected] is such a crappy idea that has probably cost them a bit of money so far.
