The developers behind EVERSPACE, Rockfish Games, have teased fans on Twitter that they could be supporting Xbox Play Anywhere. EVERSPACE is a single-player 3D space shooter with rogue-like elements and non-linear storytelling based on Unreal Engine 4.
Microsoft revealed its new Xbox service, called Xbox Play Anywhere, at E3 2016. The service allows you to purchase a participating game, then play it on both an Xbox One and Windows 10 PC at no additional cost. That means the game will be unlocked across both platforms with a single purchase. Your progress – including saves, achievements, add-ons, season passes, consumables, and in-game unlocks – will transfer across both platforms, so you can pick up where you left off.
we will have an announcement coming very soon. Stay tuned 😉

With Gamescom coming up in Germany in the next few days it might be a safe bet to assume they might be making an announcement on this at the event. EVERSPACE has been on my radar for a few months now so I for one hope that this is indeed the case and that even third party developers are getting on board with Xbox Play Anywhere.
