Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis is a new online action RPG game by SEGA. Set 1,000 years after the events of Phantasy Star Online 2, Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis takes place on Halpha, a planet on which ARKS (soldiers of the Oracle colony fleet in the Phantasy Star Online 2 series) are locked in a battle for dominance against the mysterious DOLLS.

Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis features new and improved action combat and character customization, allowing for more flexibility and expression than ever before. Choosing from four unique races and eight classes, players can join forces with other operatives to experience unforgettable battles and boss fights in brand new locales, with an emphasis on flowing, flashy mobility to conquer and explore sprawling open environments. Players will be able to do all of this with friends on both PC (Steam, Microsoft Store, Epic Games Store), Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 thanks to cross-platform play.

The global version of Phantasy Star Online 2: New Genesis includes fully localized text and character voices in English and will remain content current with the Japanese servers.

I figured it was timed exclusive in the US from Xbox since it was available in Japan. It was only a matter of time til the US got this. No different when Sony does timed exclusives.

Its definitely a weird timed exclusive since it was already out on PS4 before MS bought exclusivity for its Western release.
