Microsoft’s Project xCloud is rolling out in 20 more countries for android devices on September 15th. The game streaming service will be bundled as a part of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and it will be priced at $14.99 per month. The pass is expected to give the player access to more than 100 games that are available for Android phones and tablets. The initial release will focus only on Android, which means that iPad and iPhone users must wait for a bit longer. Microsoft’s spokesperson stated that the service will right now scale on Android through the games pass, and right now, they don’t have anything else to share about their developments in iOS.
Lack of initial iOS support will certainly disappoint iPad and iPhone users. This is mostly due to Apple’s App Store policies, and Microsoft has not yet revealed the policies which prevent the launch of xCloud on iOS. Microsoft is going ahead with its xCloud launch in 22 countries, including Belgium, Czech Republic, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Finland, France, Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Netherlands, Spain, Slovakia, South Korea, Switzerland, the United States, and the United Kingdom. To create accessories and controllers for xCloud, Microsoft has partnered with Nacon, 8BitDO, Razer, and PowerA.
