Microsoft blocks further platform support for Ori and the Blind Forest

The evil Empire of Microsoft roars and the capitalistic world goes silent.

For Microsoft, twisting the arms of game developers is good business but bad newss for the rest of us.

 Thomas Mahler, opined on the Steam Community page, “Guys, making ports isn’t something we as the developers can decide upon – We signed Ori and the Blind Forest with Microsoft, they paid for the party, so they call the shots. For the time being, Ori will only be available on Microsoft-owned platforms, such as Xbox, Win10, PC.”

What does this mean ?

Unless you get this game for a Microsoft system, you are out of luck. Welcome to the real world of business.
