Microsoft's been making a heavy push with Xbox Cloud Gaming - formerly known as Project xCloud - recently. Having announced plans to bring Game Pass streaming to smart TVs and dedicated streaming devices, alongside news they'll be using Series X hardware for cloud games, Microsoft's bringing next-gen streaming to Xbox One too.
Within a wrap-up of the Xbox & Bethesda E3 2021 Showcase, they confirmed:
For the millions of people who play on Xbox One consoles today, we are looking forward to sharing more about how we will bring many of these next-gen games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, to your console through Xbox Cloud Gaming, just like we do with mobile devices, tablets, and browsers.
How To Use Xbox Cloud Gaming On Xbox One
Right now, that's unclear but if it's being implemented in a similar manner to Android or PC, it'll likely be a separate app downloaded through the Xbox One.
We don't have a specific timeframe either, though Microsoft’s head of cloud gaming, Kareem Choudhry, previously said it'll be integrated into consoles “later this year.”
Which Series X|S Games Aren't On Xbox One?
While Microsoft previously announced that they'd implement cross-generation support for 1st party games, some are already releasing as Xbox Series X|S exclusives. Microsoft Flight Simulator's a prominent example when it arrives next month, while Starfield's also confirmed as a next-gen console exclusive. With this announcement, that means last-gen players won't necessarily miss out.
