San Diego Studio has today announced that the next iteration of MLB The Show, a Sony published and former PlayStation-exclusive series, will not only be coming to the Xbox family of consoles but will be available on Game Pass at launch, April 20.
In a blog post today, MLB Senior Vice President Jamie Leece noted the team’s excitement for Xbox players to experience the “thousands of new animations, revolutionary innovation on gameplay, and an all-new Stadium Creator” featured in the latest game (though the latter mechanic will only be available on PS5/Series X|S consoles).

As previously announced, players across all PlayStation and Xbox consoles can also look forward to full cross-platform support.
