The rhythm of rebellion could soon echo across more platforms as “Hi-Fi Rush,” initially an Xbox exclusive, is spotted in a classification filing rated for release on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PC, and mobile devices. The Australian classification hints at a broader horizon for the game previously penned as Project 2022A, developed by the acclaimed Tango Gameworks.
“Project 2022A,” now believed to be the codename for “Hi-Fi Rush,” was classified on 15 December 2022, with a description matching the distinctive style of the game. It tells the tale of an aspiring rockstar clashing with a mega technology corporation to the beat of an electrifying soundtrack. Notably, this title was rated without the feature of online interactivity, aligning with “Hi-Fi Rush’s” single-player experience.
It is possible that Zenimax had this game classified for Switch and other platforms but later made a deal with Xbox for its exclusivity. A multiplatform game could’ve been the original plan which is now coming to fruition, if the latest rumors are to be believed. Nothing is confirmed yet but all signs point to Hi-Fi Rush going multiplatform sooner or later.

The classification details reveal the game’s media type to cover a gamut of popular consoles and platforms, including PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and even mobile devices. Authored and published by Shinji Mikami and backed by Zenimax Media, this title has been stamped with an ‘M’ rating due to its science fiction violence.
Contrary to some reports, this in no way means Microsoft is going multiplatform. The focus remains Xbox first but its not out of the question that we will see some title releasing on Nintendo and PlayStation platforms.
