PS5 exclusive Forspoken makes unexpected Microsoft Store appearance

Forspoken, an action RPG formerly known as Project Athia, first made its debut in 2020 alongside Sony’s PlayStation 5 reveal event. It follows Frey, plucked from her life in New York and transported to the land Athia, where she learns a variety of new powers used to aid her survival.

The game was announced for PlayStation 5 and PC earlier this year, with a dedicated Steam page already live for the title. The page doesn’t share any new details on the project, but also couples with an unexpected appearance on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 and Windows 11. The title also looks set to support Xbox Live achievements and Xbox cloud saves, according to the listing (via IdleSloth84).

It’s speculated that the game joins the Microsoft Store to maximize profits, with several past Square Enix titles also available via the PC storefront. The listing may also allude to intentions of bringing the game to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass subscription service on PC. Outriders, the latest project from Square Enix and People Can Fly, also saw a day-one debut on Xbox Game Pass earlier in 2021.

Until we hear more details from Microsoft or Square Enix regarding the plausibility of an Xbox Game Pass launch, it’s worth taking this news lightly, until we have official confirmation on its PC plans.
