Microsoft has confirmed that MLB The Show 21 will be arriving on Xbox Game Pass on its launch day of April 20, 2021, for both Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One.
Announced on Xbox Wire, this once-PlayStation exclusive is arriving on Xbox consoles for the first time this year, and Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to enjoy the standard edition of the game on consoles, as well as on Android phones and tablets via Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) if they have Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
MLB The Show 21 also features cross-platform play and progress, meaning you will be able to play across the platform and generation of your choice, and play with your friends no matter where they choose to play.
Just last week, we were able to exclusively reveal the first Xbox gameplay of MLB The Show 21 alongside an interview with Sony San Diego Gameplay Designer Ramone Russell.
Yesterday, the team shared a look at the some of baseball’s greatest legends will look on next-gen consoles, including Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Fernando Valenzuela, and more.
MLB The Show was first released on PlayStation 2 in 2006, and has been exclusive to PlayStation platforms since then. While Xbox fans will be able to enjoy the game this year, there is still hope for Nintendo fans as the company retweeted the announcement in 2019 that the game was going multi-platform, hinting we may see in on the Switch in the future.
