MLB The Show is widely regarded as the only “true” simulation baseball franchise and has been exclusive to the PlayStation console for years now.
Yesterday evening a new deal was signed between developers, the MLB, and the MLB Players Association which looked like it could mean it was coming to other platforms.
“Major League Baseball (MLB), the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) and San Diego Studio jointly announced today that they have entered into multi-year extensions to continue development and distribution of MLB The Show, the award-winning officially licensed video game.”
The news was then essentially confirmed with funny tweets by both Nintendo and Xbox.
No more away games. https://t.co/47Bui1tuUj

This is excellent news for fans as The Show was one of the very few exclusive sports titles left on the market. For fans of MLB, this is a very welcome addition. Now let’s hope it also gets crossplay!
