Yesterday Microsoft Head of First Party Studios Publishing Shannon Loftis mentioned that whether there would be exclusive games for the newly announced Xbox One Scorpio or not was “up to the game development community.”
Apparently, that was not correct, as explained by Games Marketing Head Aaron Greenberg on Twitter.
Great thing is with Project Scorpio as part of #XboxOne family all your games will work, no Scorpio exclusives, so no one gets left behind

Loftis herself followed up, explaining that she “Botched” the question, and apologizing for the confusion.
Clarification of a question I botched yesterday – sorry for confusion! https://t.co/c4Ukb4Upau

So there you have it, straight from the lion’s mouth: there won’t be any Scorpio-exclusive games, so if you plan to stick with your original Xbox One, you’ll still be able to play everything.
