Late in 2018 at Microsoft’s X018 event live from Mexico City, the initial slate of Xbox One-compatible games that could utilize mouse and keyboard were unveiled with the promise that more titles would be added down the road. Well, now according to hardware manufacturer Razer, it seems like some of the biggest first-party releases–and some notable third-party titles–from Microsoft could have that same mouse and keyboard support added soon, or upon their release.

According to Razer’s website, nine new games in total will soon be compatible with mouse and keyboard on the Xbox One platform. Some of these include past releases such as Rare’s Sea of Thieves, the battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, and Minecraft. In addition, Razer has listed future releases from The Coalition in Gears 5 and Gears Tactics as two titles that will also support mouse and keyboard, presumably upon each game’s release.

Here’s the full list of formerly unannounced titles that will supposedly be getting the mouse and keyboard treatment moving forward:

  • Gears 5
  • Gears Tactics
  • PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
  • Sea of Thieves
  • Minecraft
  • The Sims 4
  • Deep Rock Galactic
  • Roblox
  • Surviving Mars

In total, this now brings the list of mouse and keyboard compatible titles on Xbox One up to 23. Even though the list is growing slowly, it seems like the focus has been on adding the most noteworthy games on Xbox One to the service sooner rather than later, which is a good thing.

The Turret is available now for pre-order and will set you back $249.99 with a shipping date set before March 31.
