Rumor: Xbox Game Pass and Project xCloud are Coming to Switch

Direct Feed Gaming also reported yesterday that Microsoft is bringing Ori and the Blind Forest and Xbox Game Pass to Switch. The latest development in this intriguing new partnership comes from Direct Feed Games, and it's a bombshell! This app would eventually support the Netflix-style Xbox Game Pass service as well as Microsoft's upcoming game streaming service, Project xCloud.

Like any report, this should be taken with a grain of salt, but with Game Informer putting its weight behind the claims, it all of sudden looks a lot more likely.

The Game Pass service since its inception hasn't allowed for game streaming to be an option, favouring more traditional downloads, but the xCloud tech could make this a possibility.

Could Xbox Game Pass come to Nintendo Switch? It's a big deal and a step towards the future because otherwise the Switch hardware lacks way behind that of Xbox One and is not capable of running such games. If Microsoft is able to pull this off, you'll be able to play a game like Gears of War 4 on your phone with an Xbox control connected through Bluetooth.

After such a messy first half, neither side were able to truly get into their stride in a disappointing game. There was also a notable milestone passed by David De Gea, who kept his 100th Premier League clean sheet.

Earlier it became known that Microsoft stops direct sales of Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions in Russian Federation.

This all sounds so insane to be true but keeping previous announcements of Microsoft in mind, it can be all possible but personally, I think that it's not going to happen anytime soon.

Project xCloud is a highly ambitious project by Microsoft where the tech giant wants to bring a uniform platform for gamers to play games wherever and whenever they want irrespective to their platform.
