According to US technology media Engadget, Microsoft will announce at the Game Developers Conference that Xbox Live will soon offer cross-platform developer tools to integrate the service into Android, iOS and Switch games. While there are other platforms that can support Xbox Live before, it’s limited to simple features like chat. This integration will be more in-depth.
Microsoft will showcase this tool for the first time. However, although the software tools will be completed before the Game Developers Conference, it may not be possible to understand the games that support this service in the short term. Despite this, this is still a major move, reflecting the transformation of Microsoft’s game strategy into a service sector. Including the game streaming media service Game Pass and the rumored pure cloud Xbox, the company seems to be less and less concerned about where to run the game, but more emphasis on allowing users to use Microsoft services.
