The statement added: “In addition, the historic expansion of the long-standing partnerships will bring MLB The Show, for the first time ever, to additional console platforms beyond PlayStation platforms as early as 2021.
“Complete details will be announced at a later date.”
Judging by the time scales listed, it looks like the first non-PlayStation entry of an MLB game will be launching on the Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch.
The big news was marked by the Nintendo of America Twitter who quoted a tweet from the MLB The Show Twitter account which confirmed the announcement.
Alongside the tweet Nintendo simply posted a baseball emoji.
While this is uncharted waters for Sony, rival console makers Nintendo and Microsoft have become closer in recent years.
