Phil Spencer Still Wants To See Xbox Cloud Gaming On Other Consoles

We can't imagine many publishers are happy with Epic Games right now. Thanks to the ongoing lawsuit between them and Apple, we've had an absolute flood of news in the last 48 hours. That's highlighted numerous conversations between Epic CEO Tim Sweeney and other high-level execs, including Xbox President Phil Spencer.

Showing an email conversation between the two, the court documents revealed that Phil Spencer said: "At the highest levels of [Microsoft] we are committed to pushing on these policies and continuing to expand our console platform capabilities."

Phil Spencer Still Wants Xbox Cloud Gaming On Other Consoles

Continuing further, Phil writes. "You can chime in as you feel comfortable. But I did want to just let you know that I have your point on xCloud on other consoles (haven't given up), F2P outside of Gold (we will get there and I want to partner with you), and our Store entitlement ideas as items I'm going to review with you to make progress."

For the unaware, Project xCloud was the working title for Xbox Cloud Gaming, a streaming service currently available for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Originally only available on Android, Microsoft has recently taken measures to expand this across Windows PCs and iOS.

Rumours had previously spread that it could arrive on Nintendo Switch specifically, but so far, all we've seen on Nintendo's device is some Xbox Network functionality. Nothing's been formally confirmed, but considering Microsoft is looking into Cloud Gaming for smart TVs and streaming sticks, we could potentially still see Xbox games on other consoles.
