Yooka-Laylee No Longer Part Of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere Initiative




Back when Yooka-Laylee was announced, it was noted that the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions of the game would be part of Microsoft’s Play Anywhere program. People who purchased a digital copy of the game would get both the console and computer versions, and the two would be compatible with one another. However, an Xbox Wire update now notes that Yooka-Laylee is not part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program.


In addition to the update, the Windows 10 version of the game has seen its release date removed. It is now listed as “coming soon.” There is no launch date for this iteration. However, the standard Windows, Mac, and Linux version still has an April 11, 2017 launch date.


Yooka-Laylee will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 11, 2017. The Nintendo Switch and Windows 10 exact release dates have yet to be set.
