In a new interview with EuroGamer, Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra was asked about why Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 have not yet announced that they’re supporting the Xbox One X.

Many developers this past week at gamescom announced their support for Xbox One X with their new titles launching this fall. Activision was a notable exception on the list.

As we all know, both Call of Duty: WWII and Destiny 2 have marketing agreements with Sony PlayStation. Activision has already confirmed both the games will support enhanced 4K and HDR for the PlayStation 4 Pro, but no information regarding Xbox One X support has been stated.

Microsoft has now stated that it’ll be up to Activision to announce how their titles will support Xbox One X.

I’d say we are working withΒ allΒ developers, including the ones you named to make sure the best versions are on Xbox One X and it’s up to them when they want to actually talk about what, if anything, they are doing.

I would say, we work with those developers all the time. We want to align with their messaging and what they want to say, when they want to say it. We work with them on timing, how we can help them optimise… there’s a group in my organisation called Advanced Technology Group which works with these developers on Xbox One X. We dock to their timelines and align to their communication plans. I can’t comment on any limitations they might have.

Some folks have suggested that because of Activision and Sony’s marketing agreement, Activision has not been able to announce Xbox One X support. Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra says he has ‘no direct knowledge’ of Sony stopping any developer from announcing support.

If Activision does announce Xbox One X support, we will share a new post. Stay tuned.

    Would be so dumb if they didn’t let them have a 4k version of all the capable games

  • Tested

    Why would you buy this console when the ps5 will probably come in a year or two.

    • ccrows

      Listen, I HATE console war arguments with a passion. I honestly root for BOTH companies and all consoles to succeed, because when companies compete.. Consumers win.

      ^ With all that said. I will NEVER buy a console at launch/year one again. I’ve been gaming for a lonnnng time, and year 1 games flat out suck. With the exception of a few exclusives here and there, it’s never worth the price tag.

      To finally answer your comment on “why would somebody buy this”. I have one word for you, “Library”. To have XB1, 360, eventually OG XB, and future XB1 enhanced games all in one machine (to me) is both “convenient and impressive”.

      This is not a fanboy argument, if Sony ever copies that “all-in-in one” strategy, I’ll back them on that too. It just makes waiting for year 2 or 3 quality games so much easier…

      • Totally Agree with u, but for next / new generations of console.
        This is not a new generation. All your games is already available. And around 100 is already enhanced for X.

        • ccrows

          If I can scrape up the cash, I will be very interested in picking up the XB1 X if a good BF deal is there.

          Sure the price will still be the same, but if I can get say a $50-$100 gift card out of it, it might be enough for me.

          Finally, I don’t consider XBOX X first gen anyway with the library that it can handle. If the right price and deal is there, I’m interested… πŸ™‚

          • Same. I upgraded from XB1 to XB1S so I can’t really justify upgrading again so soon, but if they pull it off, I might in a couple of years. I was starting to doubt Xbox after a good number of years of playing on Xbox Live but the extended library thing pulled it back for me well and truly

      • Peewy 978

        Its called PsNow u idiot!

        • Dante

          PS Now is not in the slightest as good as backwards compatibility. This is coming from someone who owns a PS4.

        • ccrows

          2 things:

          1 – You’re the idiot in this case. PS Now is no where as good as Microsoft’s current BC library. (IE – Can you play BO2 on PS4 right now?)

          ^ Even Sony’s execs got grilled about that at E3. They defended that by basically saying that BC isn’t that important in their eyes.

          2 – It’s one thing that you usually upvote your own comments, but for you to upvote that particular comment, makes you look even worse… <_<

          • Kevin Deng

            When Sony’s execs talked about back compat, they actually had a point. That it wasn’t worth it.

            There was a graph made that like only 5% of Xbox players used backwards compatibility m

          • ccrows

            It still was a boost in sales for the XB1. It was also the extra icing on the cake once XB1 S launched.

            Of course a lot of that had to do with BO2, which is the poster boy of BC in still highly played on XBOX most played list for the week…

        Shut the fuck up you fucking retard

      • joey

        I dunno, dude. I waited until 2015 to upgrade to a ps4 and the consequences nearly killed me. I’m referring, of course, to all of those Advanced Warfare DLC weapons they claimed the ps3 couldn’t spare the memory for (lol) – you know, the first to be exclusive to supply drops. It was hell.

        (in case it’s not clear, i’m being sarcastic. completely agree with you)

    • Why should we wait when we can buy the console which Sony might launch after a year or two? :p

      PS5 is not coming out any time soon and neither is Xbox 2(Even if there was no XboneX) Technology needs to advance before either side does anything(CPU’s especially), and with tech advancement slowing way down they might as well wait. Plus It takes a TON of money to put out a new console and with Sony as a whole not doing all that great(Even with PS doing so well), we wont see another console generation for at least 3-4 years at a min. Why do you think each sie released a stop gap(Pro and X)

      • User 1

        Shut the fuck up you moron

      • Kevin Deng

        The earliest they’ll release the PS5 is end of 2018(Which I highly doubt), or 2019 and 2020. And 2-3 years sounds pretty close to me.

        • jt3z

          I doubt it tech advancement is slowing down like crazy especially on the cpu side(Which is the bottleneck for every console) and until theres a big advancement dont expect any new consoles anytime soon. Would be awesome tho if it happened.

  • Peewy 978

    Xbox one x will fail based on price and not many AAA Exclusives to offer casual gamers. I have an xbone and ps4 but not many gamers are willing to cough up a $500 price tag on xbox one x when they already own an xbox one.

    • ccrows

      I know that you like to troll around here, but I’m gonna respond to this anyway.

      The real profit doesn’t come from hardware, it comes from subs and software. If Microsoft cared about hardware profits so much, then they wouldn’t have taken the time to bridge PC gamers with console gamers with certain titles.

      Microsoft doesn’t care which hardware platform that you are using, they just want the subs and software revenue “anyway and anywhere” that they can get.

      I’m sure that the XBOX One X won’t be groundbreaking (to mainstream), but this is more about fixing their image of competing with Sony towards the end of this round, and building up steam for the next round.

      Finally, if Phil Spencer was in charge of the OG XB1, they wouldn’t be in this mess. Don Mattrick was in charge instead, and his vision for the XB1 was why the OG XB1 struggled so much out of the gate…

      • Lol that peewy guy is an absolute moron. Can’t take anything he says seriously.

        • Danny Zweintjes

          PS4 is the better console but the PC is hands down the best gaming platform there is.

          • What does that have to do with my comment

          • Peewy 978

            I agree

          • User 1

            PS4 is fucking garbage but seriously the only thing worse is PC. If you play FPS games on PC you are fucking retarded. Take BF1. Game was already dead less than a week later. MWR? Hah. PC is for fucking morons.

        • Kevin Deng

          I would have to disagree. I haven’t looked at these comments in a while, but his comments on this thread have claims that could be backed up with evidence.

          • Lol are you serious? Are you even reading the same comments I’m reading? Check his entire comment history. The guy speews nonsense all the time.

      • Peewy 978

      lol day one edition of xbox one x is allready sold out. to fail looks different for me… it also get in front of ps4 pro sales on amazon…. maybe first take a look on whats going on, before trying to be a crystal eye LOL

      • Peewy 978

        Buying a an Xbox would be just a waist of money if u ask me. Reason 1. $500 price tag, 2. Shitty Lineup of Games, 3. Government Spying on you through Kinect! Dont believe me look it up!

        • Beast Mode

          You really are dumb af bro

      • Kevin Deng

        Being sold out isn’t a good accomplishment. For all you know, they could’ve has only 5000 Xbox One X’s available.

        For example, Battlefront 2(PS4) has been sold out on Amazon for months and not a lot of people are taking about that game.

  • I doubt it but I’m still upgrading.

    • Psychomaggot105

      That would suck if a developer doesn’t make enhanced version of games.

      • Peewy 978

        They wouldnt enhance some games due to exclusive rights to Playstation.

        • Thomas Camies

          God I hate fanboys like yourself who can’t afford both consoles so have to project their hatred on others to justify their own purchase. It must suck being you.

      It’s almost guaranteed the XXX version will at least match Pro in visual quality. It’s happened before where publishers had exclusivity deals with one platform holder but the other platform had the better version of the game.

    • Sexy Mcgee

      Oh, I just remembered an example. EA had an exclusivity deal with Microsoft with some marketing stuff for BF1 and yet the Pro version of Battlefield 1 was easily the best console version. Of course that’s another publisher but I don’t think Activision would leave the XXX version without any support.

  • I plan on upgrading, I doubt Activision will enhance either Desinty or CoD for this console. But oh well

    • User 1

      Why do you need to upgrade kid you suck at the game

  • Joseph Upton

    What about us on pc?

  • Rob Melchor

    Microsoft needs to pay Activision a ton of money in order to have these exclusive benefits.

  • Ramon Kaltenbach

    no supporting xbox one x would be the biggest fail they can do. the system offers in console area the best hardware. the game could run on native 4k and 60fps without problems.

    • Peewy 978

      Not for Playstation

  • ToonToons22

    I intend to upgrade some time in the future, but CoD and Destiny may as well be PlayStation exclusives if the Xbox One X doesn’t get supported. If there’s no support, then what’s the point in buying the game for Xbox in the first place?

    The exclusivity deal has gotten to the point where PlayStation gets all the available perks and benefits — benefits that no other system has access to, while at the same time, Xbox gets an inferior product and PC ends up with this horrific-ass port that will just become dead in a matter of months.

    Activision is killing off the CoD community with stupid decisions like that. They’re the equivalent of a gigantic middle finger to people who’ve played CoD for years like me.

    • Peewy 978

      U weren’t crying when all those years Xbox had the exclusive rights to Cod! I The Grass is not Greener on the Other Side!

      • ToonToons22

        You think I supported the deal when Xbox had it? It was terrible either way! If I had been a member of this site for longer you’d still hear me “crying” about the exclusive rights because it wasn’t fair to anyone. If Microsoft were to get the exclusive stuff back, I’d be the first one to complain because dumb deals like that serve to divide the community, not bring it together.

    • Peewy 978

      I agree

  • Peewy 978

    Hope everyone knows u need a 4k tv to fully take advantage of the new Xbox one x capabilities. Its useless to have it without a 4K Tv.

    • Beast Mode

      Wrong….xbox one x uses supersampling which will make your 1080 games look even better in 1080… xbox one x will be the most powerful console ever

      • Peewy 978

        How good is a powerful machine with crappy lineup of games? Just sayin!

        • Cigi

          Changing narrative all the time right, you where wrong with your 4k jab, so more you go for the no games story.

          You already have more games optimized for xbox one x, compared to the pro. We are talking about 4k naitive, and ultra settings most of the time.

          If you own the games you get it for free. Not a crappy definitive edition for full price as we see all the time on the other side.

          • Kevin Deng

            “4k native, and ultra settings most of the time”

            You’re naive if you think a $500 machine can do better than a $700 graphics card.

            Also, you’re English is horrible.

        • Beast Mode

          Stop it….just stop…a very very small portion of gamers care about exclusives..the majority play multiplatform games…ALL multiplats will look better on the X…

          No debate

          • Peewy 978

            Small portion? I bet the whole xbox fanboys are crying about cod beta and other exclusives that the ps4 has like enhanced games like cod and destiny

          • Beast Mode

            Like i said…..enhanced or not they will look and play better on the X…..

            The only thing that can beat is a pc…

            End of story

          • Peewy 978

            Play better? Thats more an opinion than facts!

          • Beast Mode

            Fax!

          • Peewy 978

            Can’t even spell Facts right! Shows you guys what kind of IQ this this guy has lol smh!

          • Beast Mode

            rip

          • Kevin Deng

            Most multi platform games will look and play better on the X, but it has to be enhanced.

            If it isn’t it plays like a regular Xbox One.

  • Ak74u

    Xbox should have the new exclusive deal again
