I suppose it's good to know Microsoft is working towards a better way to connect gamers across the many different platforms they chose to play on, and at the very least it'll be nice to have more options when it comes to the ways we connect with our friends or store our gaming history, though one still has to wonder how well this SDK will catch on in the mobile gaming world.
Microsoft will soon have a new Xbox console - but what new tech will follow? As its name suggests, Xbox Live has traditionally been exclusive to Microsoft's Xbox games console family - though it was extended to include Windows as Games for Windows Live in 2007, then Windows Phone devices in 2010, and even found its way to the company's ill-fated Zune media player platform in 2008 as Zune Social. Now a Game Developers Conference (GDC) session listing has revealed that it wants Xbox Live to power multiplayer gaming across iOS, Android, Nintendo Switch, Xbox and PC devices. The session - titled "Xbox Live: Growing & Engaging Your Gaming Community Across iOS, Android, Switch, Xbox, and PC" will apparently cover the possibilities of Xbox Live on the aforementioned platforms. Almost half a billion devices isn't anything to sneeze at, but quadrupling that number to reach 2 billion devices by supporting additional devices would make Xbox Live the most expansive platform around.
Microsoft says "Combined with PlayFab gaming services, this means less work for game developers and more time to focus on making games fun".
It wasn't immediately clear from the session description when consumers could expect to see the functionality in the wild, and Microsoft representatives didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
