We might see keyboard and mouse support on the Xbox One, as suggested by Phil Spencer himself.
In case you didn’t know: yes, you can use a keyboard and mouse on the PlayStation 4. That option exists, though I personally don’t see a reason to do it beyond web browsing and chat.
In the case of the Xbox One, though? Halo Wars 2 seems like a perfectly justifiable reason for looking forward to keyboard and mouse support. RTS games are beautiful with mouse and keyboard. The two are a match made in gaming heaven, so it makes sense that a fan would ask Xbox boss Spencer about the potential on Twitter. Here’s the interaction:
@ryan89778 It won't be there at launch but this is support we'd like to add as it comes to the Xbox platform.

That certainly sounds like it’s coming…
Microsoft hasn’t really said anything officially about keyboard and mouse support on the Xbox One. However, here Spencer clearly says “as it comes” not “if it comes.”
Sure, this could go absolutely nowhere, but mark this tweet down as a potential clue for support in a future update.
