Global computing giant, Microsoft may bring its Xbox Live games to Android and iOS platforms. Timeline about the availability has not been revealed by the company.
Xbox Live games, which are now available only Windows Phone based mobile devices apart from Xobx consoles, are hugely popular. Following the success, Microsoft is now aiming to bring the games to other operating systems to satisfy users who neither own an Xbox or a Windows based mobile phone.
Since Android and iOS are the other two prominent mobile operating systems that are big in terms of gaming, it would be a best guess at this time that Microsoft will be aiming at these two before any other operating system.
A Microsoft spokesperson, while in conversation with Forbes said, “While the Xbox Live experiences and games always work best on the Windows platform, we understand that some Xbox fans may be using other types of devices. To satisfy that need, we are working to extend a few of our Xbox experiences and titles to other platforms.”
While work in this regard has already begun as Microsoft has already released Xbox Live game Kinectimals for iOS platform and till date the game has received some pretty impressive response and appreciation from the iOS based users.
Now, it needs to be seen when Microsoft starts its association with Android as it is gaining immense popularity.
