Rumor has it that Microsoft plans to release at least some of its Xbox console exclusives on PlayStation 5. This Thursday, we’ll find out if it’s true.

Microsoft gaming boss Phil Spencer acknowledged the rumors last week and announced that he’d reveal Microsoft’s “vision for the future of Xbox” this week. We’ve now learned that the reveal is going to happen on the Official Xbox Podcast this Thursday, February 15.

A podcast feels a bit low key as a venue for such a hotly anticipated chat; some Xbox diehards are apoplectic over the idea that they’re being betrayed after years of loyalty to Microsoft’s console. Maybe the rumors have overblown the amount of change coming, or maybe Spencer and company hope to downplay it.
