All First-Party Xbox Games Will Come to PC

There's an interview with Phil Spencer on Gamereactor talking with the head of Xbox at Microsoft about a variety of topics (thanks PC Gamer). Along the way he confirms that all upcoming Xbox first-party games will also be coming to PC. Here's what he says:
The question that we get then is sometimes, what about this specific closed platform? And that I really mean there is we're either kind of all in or not all in on one of these closed platforms. I don't think its healthy where for every first-party game that comes out I have to get the question, is that coming to Switch or is that coming to Switch, and it not because, I love Nintendo and our relationship with what we are doing, that want us to be all in or not, and there is this expectation from customers like there is now on PC, where people don't really question - there might be some timing things, on when certain things happen - but if we are shipping a first-party game it's coming to PC. If we are shipping a first-party game on PC it's coming to Steam and our own store. Like we built an expectation from our customers. That's my goal, and then there will be, as you said, maybe little anomalies every so often and because of relationships and certain developers that want to do certain things, but my goal is: make games as playable by as many people as possible so that this art form continues to grow. And I wanna be all in on the places where Xbox is, so a customer of those platforms can have an expectation that I'm gonna get to go play. And I feel good about the games that we are building, and I feel good about that on PC. You know if I rewind five years ago, I would say over and over, that we are committed to PC and then get a bunch of eye rolls, and rightfully so for we weren't doing much. But I think now when you look at what our standing is on Steam and Game Pass on PC, we have shown that our commitment over time has paid off. PC customers may or may not love what we do, but they know that when we are shipping things, we're gonna do our best effort on PC as well as on Xbox.

It's only been 19 years since the release of the Xbox and numerous broken promises made to PC gamers, when they weren't exclusively locking content to their console. After the first promise every new promise has the "if you asked me about last time" clause followed by a "no really, this time we mean it this time". The Game Pass has been successful - but excuse me if I don't make any move to grab my wallet.
