In an interview with AusGamers, Phil Spencer, Microsoft's corporate vice president, commented that cross-platform play between the Xbox One and PC "makes a lot of sense" as part of a "connected ecosystem across all the different devices."
However, he wouldn't go as far as to say that this was definitely happening. When pressed about it, he said, "I'm not allowed to leak things."
Are you done laughing? Let's continue.
He pointed out that Microsoft didn't see a lot of success when they attempted cross-platform play with Shadowrun in 2007, but he said they learned a lot from the experience. It's part of what drove them to attempt cross-platform play with Windows phones and tablets, such as Halo: Spartan Assault.
"This connected ecosystem across all the different devices is definitely where I think the future of gaming is going; you don't have to do it as a developer, but you have the capability and I think a system like Xbox Live across all those screens where you know who someone is and who their friends are, what their Achievements are and their progression is really critical to that," said Spencer.
Considering the OS of the Xbox One is pretty much a console-ized version of Windows 8, this is hardly a surprise. Would you be interested in cross-platform play between the Xbox One and the PC?
