Microsoft Brings Xbox Live to iOS and Android

Xbox Live iOS Android

Game Stack is a significant move in itself, and it has big implications for Xbox Live in particular, which is heading to iOS and Android as part of this initiative.

Microsoft has laid out plans to launch a new cross-platform mobile SDK for that will let game devs add Xbox Live functionality to games on iOS and Android. It's called Game Stack and it means Azure, PlayFab, DirectX, Visual Studio, Xbox Live, App Center, and Havok will be offered as an ecosystem to work within on the platform of your choice, be that Xbox and Windows, or mobile devices, PlayStation, or Switch.

By opening up Xbox Live to other platforms, Microsoft is accelerating the slow pivot from the online service being tied explicitly to a console and instead positioning it as a fabric for online gaming.

"Over the past 16 years, Xbox Live has become one of the most vibrant and engaged gaming communities in the world".

At the start of last month, Microsoft revealed they'd be bringing Project xCloud to the Game Developers Conference (GDC) this month.

Rumors have been swirling for some time that Nintendo and Microsoft were up to "something" and while it was initially rumored that GamePass was headed to the Switch, Xbox Live integration may make a bit more sense. Kareem Choudhry, CVP of Microsoft's new Gaming Cloud division penned a long blog post to announce Microsoft Game Stack, a new bundle that includes all of the company's game-development platforms, tools, and services.

Regardless, Microsoft's GDC 2019 panel will definitely be one to watch, as Xbox Live is about to blow up. "Really uniting all those communities together with a consistent singular experience for those gamers".

What we do know now is that this Xbox Live SDK will bring trusted game identity security controls and will allow developers to pick and choose which Xbox Live features they want to include in their games.
