MLB: The Show is an incredibly popular baseball franchise from Sony Interactive Entertainment. It's regarded as one of the best PlayStation Exclusive series out there and garners fantastic reviews every year. From the looks of it, it's no longer going to be a multiplatform game. Today, Major League Baseball (MLB) announced that future iterations would be available on other consoles by as early as 2021.
Part of the statement the organization provided can be seen below.
Given the fact that the statement says "additional console platforms," it's likely that it's going to come to Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. However, by the time the first entry lands, it'll probably be available for Project Scarlett because Microsoft's next-generation machine is launching in Holiday 2020. Given the fact that the Switch released rather recently, there probably won't be a successor announced by 2021.
When news of this broke, Xbox's Larry Hryb and the Nintendo Twitter account both emphasized that it was coming to additional consoles. However, we'll have to wait for an official announcement to be sure.
