While Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform has largely been welcomed on the apps side of the business, it has been eyed with suspicion on the gaming front. Epic Games’ Tim Sweeney minced no words in criticizing UWP’s chilling effects on PC gaming, warning of how it could be used to turn the culture into a closed one. On the technical side of things, he points out how UWP severely limits how much of the hardware games can access. Microsoft is partly addressing that last part, but only if you’re targeting the Xbox One. In the upcoming Fall Creators Update, perhaps the worst-named update, UWP game developers will have access to more of the Xbox One’s hardware, paving the way for possibly more sophisticated, and resource-intensive, cross platform games.
