Two platforms with equally large market share, it’s a bit confusing to see how Microsoft is trying to make PC and Xbox One as platform power equally and equally appealing. One interesting thing is that this American company is never interested in integrating the two into the same ecosystem, at least to ensure a maximum playing experience. As an example? Microsoft’s flagship game today – CSR Racing 2 is being launched for Xbox One and PC at the same time. Apart from the same parent company, Titanfall has a dedicated gameplay server for each platform. What really happened?
Gaijin reveals the reason why War Thunder is not released for Xbox One. The main problem is that Microsoft itself does not allow cross-play features between Xbox One and PC.

A bit of a war point from this situation came from the developer of the free to play game of fighter-themed plane of the past – CSR Racing 2 hack . In his latest interview with gaming site – Gamespot, Gaijin mentioned that the policy was born from Microsoft’s own party. Microsoft does not allow developers to inject servers that allow gamers from Xbox One and PC to play in the same space. Microsoft itself reasoned that this policy is pursued to offer a more stable playing experience. For this reason, Gaijin did not launch the War Thunder for Xbox One.
There are several reasons why the decision was made. First, because the Xbox One fan base itself is not big enough to pull the War Thunder into the market. With the absence of PC gamers, this game will not perform optimally. Gaijin also highlighted Microsoft’s highly risk-averse attitude to adapt new indie games that have not yet proven its sales performance on the market. The opposite policy with Sony provides full support.
