Microsoft Eager To Expand Xbox Live Cross-Platform Gaming On Switch

Microsoft Plans to Expand Xbox Live to Nintendo Switch, Mobile Devices With Cross-Platform Program

The information comes from the GDC 2019 scheduling website, describing Microsoft's future plans for Xbox Live.

Microsoft has been pushing for cross-platform gaming for a few years now.

Microsoft is apparently poised to bring Xbox Live to Nintendo Switch and mobile platforms, including Android and iOS.

While Minecraft players do now have the ability to log into Xbox Live on Switch, this new implementation will seemingly allow games to incorporate more features, like Achievements and Friend Lists.

It continued to preview a software development kit aimed at developers which will allow them to "connect players between iOS, Android, and Switch in addition to Xbox and any game in the Microsoft Store on Windows PCs". The segment, "Xbox Live: Growing & Engaging Your Gaming Community Across Platforms" will be presented by Microsoft, with Jeffrey Shi and Ramsey Khadder apparently headlining the talk.

The GDC runs from March runs 18 through March 22 and the cross-platform advancement may not be the only new technology on show from Microsoft.

In a blurb for their upcoming appearance, Microsoft states that Xbox Live has grown to be one of the leading gaming social communities.

We've recently learned of figures behind the Xbox Live monthly users, with said figure seeing up to 64 million monthly active users. Combined with PlayFab gaming services, this means less work for game developers and more time to focus on making games fun. Meanwhile, the mobile market is incredibly vast, and there could be much to gain going forward by being seen as the hub for communicating with friends and acquiring achievements on mobile devices.

Xbox Live was fairly ubiquitous when online gaming first got big on home consoles.
