It will be possible to stream all games available for the Xbox One via Microsoft’s Project xCloud. This means that a game library of 3500 games will become available, and adjustments will also be made automatically to the stream service.
All those games do not have to be technically modified to work with Project xCloud, which means that in principle all 3500 games that work with the Xbox One also work with the game streaming service. In addition, changes made to the Xbox One version will also automatically become available on Project xCloud.
That should make it easier for developers to offer their games on multiple platforms. After all, it only takes one time to develop a game for Xbox One, but also on devices that can work with Project xCloud, such as tablets and smartphones.
Microsoft announced the arrival of xCloud last fall, although it was already confirmed last summer that a streaming service was being worked on. According to the company, blade servers that are located in Azure data centers are used, with which the service is tested internally. Microsoft now states that an alpha version is available that is being tested by Microsoft employees. A public beta release is likely to be released later this year.
