Microsoft Is Bringing Project xCloud to iOS and PC in 2021
Microsoft has officially confirmed that Project xCloud will be coming to iOS and PC in 2021. It will support iPhone, iPad, and PC starting in spring 2021, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will unlock access for free upon release. The PC version of xCloud will be delivered through the Xbox app for Windows 10, with many computers automatically featuring the app right from the start button. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate brings the Game Pass lineup to Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC for $15 per month.
“In Spring 2021, we will take the next step in our journey to reach more players around the world by making cloud gaming as part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate available on Windows PCs through the Xbox app and browser, and iOS devices through the mobile web browser,” said Microsoft’s Xbox marketing chief Jerret West. “By adding over a billion devices as a path to playing in the Xbox ecosystem, we envision a seamless experience for all types of players.”
Apple has been hellbent on preventing Microsoft from bringing Project xCloud to the iOS platform in the same way it has already landed on the Android platform, but it looks like Microsoft has found a workaround for it. While Xbox fans can already get a taste of Project xCloud through the Xbox mobile app, it looks like the real deal is coming next year. Rumors have been suggesting that Project xCloud will work through the iOS web app when it releases next year but Microsoft has yet to clarify how Project xCloud will end up on the platform.
