Microsoft announced intention to launch its xCloud game streaming service sometime in 2020. The announcements came at XO19, the company’s Xbox-focused event, which is taking place in London.
Actually Game Pass is currently in a preview period on PC. What is known about xCloud is that gamers will get access to all the games currently available on Microsoft’s Game Pass subscription, well over a hundred PC and console titles right now, with more being added regularly. Game Pass will also be receiving dozens of titles old and new throughout 2020, including Final Fantasy 7 through 15, Darksiders 3, Flight Simulator and a bunch of newly announced games such as Obsidian’s new “Honey, I Shrunk the Survival Game” title, “Grounded.”
Speaking to members of the press at X019, Microsoft’s gaming chief, Phil Spencer, said that the company plans to bring Final Fantasy 14 to the service at a later date. “I wanted you to know, rest assured that we will be bringing that game to Xbox,” he said. Other new games coming to Xbox Game Pass over the next year include Darksiders III, Tekken 7, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and multiple Yakuza titles including Yakuza 0, Kiwami, and Kiwami 2.
