As you know, Xbox Game Pass is at the heart of Xbox strategy. The company’s goal is to overcome the usual limits of video games and make access as wide as possible. Therefore, the subscription service is currently available on consoles, PC, but also on Android phones since September 15th. Of course, Xbox doesn’t want to stop there and the rest is already known: iOS, TV screens, internet and all kinds of media. It remains to know the schedule, which can be a little vague at times.
A new speech made Phil Spencer a little more specific about this service. Or rather, the arrival of Xbox Game Pass on our TV screens, which the man had talked about earlier. And when we know that the arrival of the offering on Apple devices is now priority, other devices are not far behind. In this way, the head of Microsoft’s gaming division assured The Verge’s microphone that the Xbox Game Pass should arrive on connected TVs for the next 12 years.
I think you will see this in the next 12 months. I think nothing will stop us.
To achieve this result, of course, the xCloud service is used. Recently renamed Xbox Game Streaming, the dematerialized game offering includes more than 100 games available through Xbox Game Pass subscription. You will of course need to connect a controller to your TV to use it, unless developments have been made to use your mobile phone as a controller.
It is certain that 2021 will turn out to be the year xCloud explodes. After iOS and TVs, the internet will no doubt be the next big priority. If you can play your favorite games through a simple browser, you can easily switch many new players. But it will likely need to be patient to discover this, even if the first tests on the PC were recently suggested to Windows Central.
