Microsoft’s Phil Spencer hopes to make cross-buy and cross-save functionality a “platform feature” of PC and Xbox One.
The game will support cross-buy and cross-save functionality when it launches on April 5, which is a first for the company.
Microsoft aim to make this a “platform feature” in the future, with the idea of bringing first-party games to both Xbox One and PC.
When asked on Twitter if third-party games will adopt the same features, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer said he’d make it a “platform feature”.
"We'll make it a platform feature," Spencer replied. "We think it's good for gamers."
Spencer hopes to implement these features at a system level, but it’s unlikely all third party publishers will support the idea.

Console exclusives simply aren’t a relevant or viable business practice nowadays, so it’s great to see Microsoft embracing the idea of going multi-platform with first-party titles.
The more people who get to play something, the better.
Quantum Break is scheduled to release on April 5 for Xbox One.
