Just a few weeks back, Microsoft has announced plans for its Project xCloud game-streaming platform. The company said that this platform will initially be available for selected markets only. Microsoft also launched a public review of the Project xCloud game-streaming platform. Now, the company revealed that the Project xCloud game-streaming platform is being planned to roll out officially for general users in 2020.
Microsoft announced the inclusion of as many as 50 more games into the platform. Now, the total number of game titles including this 50 is 55. Previously, Microsoft announced only 5 games for this platform. Some popular titles that are added to the list are Devil May Cry 5, Tekken 7, Forza Horizon 4 and many more.
The new announcement seems to be really wild ion nature because, one of Microsoft’s close competitor, Google, with its Google Stadia offers only 12 games at launch. Microsoft has also announced that it has plans to roll it out for Windows PCs as well.
As of now, there are no details about the pricing or global availability of Project xCloud. Leakers are considering that the launch event will take place in early 2020.
Catherine Gluckstein, the general manager of xCloud revealed in a recent interview to The Verge that Microsoft has joined hands with Apple in order to bring the service to iOS and iPadOS sooner rather than later.
Similarly, Phil Spencer, Microsoft’s head of gaming told The Verge that Microsoft is planning to integrate Project xCloud with Xbox Game Pass next year. It will allow players to stream games directly from the cloud without having to install them on their devices. He also revealed that Microsft is trying to expand xCloud’s controller compatibility so they have integrated Sony’s DualShock 4 and various gamepads and other peripherals from Razer.
