Price & Pre-order

There's plenty of big news about MLB The Show 21 this year - with the San Diego Studio title arriving on Xbox for the first time.

Not only that, but The Show becomes the first heavyweight sports title to offer cross-platform play.

The question remains, however, can PC players join in on the fun?

Will MLB The Show 21 be on PC?

This is where things get strange.

Back in December, MLB Communications Tweeted that MLB The Show will become "multi-platform" on a "multi-year" agreement.

We have seen since the game confirmed for Xbox, and there's also been a tease from Nintendo America's Twitter.

That said, as of yet - there has been no news of the title arriving on PC.

However, with Xbox owned by Microsoft, it would not be a huge surprise for the title to become available on PC. So, for now, watch this space.

This move to allow the previously exclusive PlayStation title on to Xbox could open the door to more conversations around future games and crossplay - it could prove to be a very poignant move for the gaming industry as a whole.

Release Date

MLB The Show 21 will be released on Tuesday, 20 April.
