Microsoft is beginning to transform their image from an in-household computer product to the everyday person with the green light of their cross-platform deal with iOS, Nintendo, and Android devices.
The mobile plan to make Xbox Live a more accessible brand is underway while Microsoft first publicly announced this innovative teaser earlier today. Microsoft released a statement explaining that Xbox Live will reach “over 2 billion devices with the release of our new cross-platform Xbox development kit.”
Unlike, Sony who is choosing to remain exclusive with their video games and electrical devices.
Microsoft is elevating the landscape of the way users game through their decision to expand Xbox Live accessibility. The successful technology corporation envisions, “Xbox Live players” being “highly engaged and active on Xbox and PC” and “now they can take their gaming achievement history, their friends list, their clubs, and more with them to almost every screen.”
The company plans on having a presentation at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) where they will discuss this groundbreaking news more in detail.
The future looks extremely interconnected as gaming platforms have already chosen to comply with the idea of constant innovation when it comes to keeping users on their feet and excited with whats to come technologically. Microsoft is just following suit with this cycle of enhancement while there has already been some cross-functional play in certain games such as Minecraft and Fortnite.
Taking into account, the multi-billion dollars worth of success in just these two games. Through Xbox Live, it looks like Microsoft is paving way for the future to be virtually mobile.
