In a new interview with Game Informer, Xbox’s Matt Booty discusses The Outer Worlds and it becoming an exclusive franchise going forward.
“From what we’ve seen of Outer Worlds, my hope is we can build and then it becomes an enduring franchise and it really grows and we can expand that,” Booty says. “I think it’s a great universe they’ve created. And I think about what are the things that you need for a franchise to kind of bear weight? Like what can it withstand? Is it a narrative, is it a set of characters, is it a universe that’s big enough that you could start to add onto it?”
Booty also mentions that The Outer Worlds could one day be like Halo where there are different stories in that universe told through novels and comics among other mediums. Additionally, Booty mentions Minecraft as an example of a franchise that makes sense to be on multiple consoles whereas The Outer Worlds could be one that benefits from Microsoft’s resources.
Recently, Dualshockers’ own Brandon Doerrer got to check out The Outer Worlds and explore the game’s world and characters. Additionally, the game has been announced for Nintendo Switch but no specific release date has been announced. As more news and footage is released, my excitement increases and it’s easily become one of my most anticipated games of the year.
The Outer Worlds launches on October 25 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is available for preorder on Amazon now.
