Microsoft will stop at nothing until Game Pass becomes the ultimate gaming service and has surprised baseball fans that own an Xbox console by announcing that MLB The Show 21 will come to the service on launch day.

In a quick statement published on the Xbox Wire website, the company revealed that the franchise developed by San Diego Studio, one of Sony's first-party studios, will make its way to Xbox for the first time ever, having previously released exclusively on Sony platforms since 2006.

Fans were expecting news ever since 2019, when the Major League Baseball and Xbox revealed that MLB had reached an agreement with Sony regarding a multi-year multi-platform deal that would see San Diego Studio continue developing the title, with the promise that it launched on other consoles "as soon as 2021."
