Following an excellent launch of their next-gen console, Microsoft are back to expanding their services, as the company announced xCloud beta coming to PC and iOS in spring of 2021.
"Expanding Xbox to new players is central to our ambition of helping games and developers find an easy path to the world’s 3 billion gamers. We are doing this by embracing multiple devices and providing a consistent Xbox experience wherever you log in, whether that’s on your Xbox Series X|S, PC, Xbox One, Android device or – starting in Spring 2021 – your Windows PC and iOS device from the cloud", the company wrote.
Come spring 2021, Microsoft will make cloud gaming part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate available on Windows PC devices via the Xbox app and browser. Same goes for iOS devices, which will access it through the mobile web browser.
Microsoft also announced that cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate will be coming to new markets in 2021. They specifically listed Australia, Brazil, Japan and Mexico, where a limited Project xCloud preview program has already begun.
While they didn't provide the exact dates for the aforementioned countries, we're willing to bet that Microsoft won't be wasting time in expanding the service across the globe. You know, time is money and all that.
Of course, spring 2021 is about the time when Microsoft's deal for the acquisition of Bethesda is going through, so it will be ripe time to indulge in the games made by Xbox Game Studios' new addition.
Microsoft have bolstered their development ranks with an impressive number of reputable studios, all in order to support Xbox Game Pass and related services, and 2021 looks like it will be a year to remember.
