Microsoft will let Xbox One proprietors play next-gen Xbox games through its xCloud service. The news was buried in a blog post recapping Microsoft’s Xbox + Bethesda exhibit, with the organization affirming plans to leverage Xbox Cloud Gaming (xCloud) for Xbox One consoles. That implies the 2013 equipment will actually want to play Xbox Series X select games from 2021 — expanding the lifecycle of what might typically before long be out of date boxes.
“For the millions of people who play on Xbox One consoles today, we are looking forward to sharing more about how we will bring many of these next-gen games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, to your console through Xbox Cloud Gaming, just like we do with mobile devices, tablets, and browsers,” says Will Tuttle, editor in chief of Microsoft’s Xbox Wire.
Up to this point, Microsoft had just depicted xCloud on consoles as a path for players to “attempt [games] before you download,” yet it’s reasonable the organization considers the to be as offering substantially more. Microsoft initially reported Microsoft Flight Simulator as a Xbox One title, before discreetly eliminating references to the Xbox One dispatch in December. Microsoft as of late affirmed Flight Simulator will presently dispatch on Xbox Series X/S consoles on July 27th.
It’s not satisfactory when xCloud game streaming will be free on Xbox One consoles, however. It’s probably not going to be prepared on schedule for the July dispatch of Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Microsoft’s head of cloud gaming, Kareem Choudhry, recently said xCloud will be coordinated into consoles “in the not so distant future.”
xCloud accessibility will give a welcome lift to Xbox One consoles, especially as Microsoft is overhauling its worker sharp edges to run Xbox Series X equipment in the not so distant future. It will give this more established equipment an approach to play impending titles like Starfield, which, similar to Flight Simulator, will likewise dispatch solely on the new Xbox Series X/S consoles.
