MLB The Show to be the first PlayStation Studios game released on Xbox

MLB The Show 21 is now the first PlayStation Studios game to be released on both the PlayStation and Xbox platform at launch.



MLB The Show 21 has been announced to be the first PlayStation Studios game released on Xbox, and support console crossplay.

A surprise announcement came from the official PlayStation Twitter today, February 1, 2021, alongside a trailer for MLB The Show 21, coming to current-gen Xbox consoles.

The Tweet confirmed the cover athlete for this year’s iteration, Fernando Tatis Jr, and disclosed the plans to also release the game on Xbox Series S and X alongside the PlayStation 4 and 5. You can watch the trailer below.

MLB The Show will also support cross-platform play between the Xbox and PlayStation consoles. In addition to this, players will get cross-platform progression, which means you’ll keep all your progress regardless of which platform you play on.

This means if you hop from Xbox to PlayStation, you’ll still be able to progress the same account.
