xCloud expands and arrives on new platforms: Microsoft has announced that its streaming game service will arrive on PC and iOS in Spring 2021. The confirmation came directly on the Official site Xbox:
“Expanding Xbox to new players is central to our ambition to help games and developers find an easy path to the 3 billion players worldwide. We are doing this by dedicating ourselves to different devices and providing a consistent Xbox experience wherever you log in, be it Xbox Series X | S, PC, Xbox One, Android, and starting Spring 2021, Windows PC and iOS devices. In Spring 2021 we will take the next step in our journey to reach more players around the world by making cloud gaming available, as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, on the Windows PC platform, via the Xbox app and browser, and on iOS via web browser. By adding over a billion devices as a gateway to the Xbox ecosystem, we've designed a seamless experience for all types of gamers; whether it's to play Minecraft Dungeons with friends using touch controls on an iPhone or take a ride in Destiny 2: Beyond Light on a Surface Pro during a break from your meetings. Whichever screen you choose, we want to make it easy for you to keep playing and connect with your friends ”.
xCloud therefore broadens the range of its potential users and also expands to new countries:
"We will finally bring cloud gaming to new markets, including Australia, Brazil, Mexico and Japan where we recently launched our limited xCloud preview program."
Finally, Microsoft recalled that all the Xbox exclusives that will arrive already in 2021 will be placed on the service, starting with Halo Infinite and Psychonauts 2, in addition to some titles not yet announced by Xbox Game Studios and the newly acquired Bethesda studios.
