As we said at the beginning, Microsoft has already made it possible to play games from the cloud. However, the Xbox Cloud Gaming servers run on X-series hardware. This ensures that the service is limited to Xbox games only. The documents also show that Microsoft wants to bring PC games to Xbox Cloud Gaming by taking advantage of Azure servers.
Emails involving Satya Nadella, CEO of the company, Phil Spencer, president of Xbox, and Kareem Choudhry, head of the cloud gaming department, showed that the idea came in response to Stadia, the cloud gaming service that Google introduced in 2019. Google, closed Stadia at the beginning of 2023 because it could not give what was expected.
On the other hand, it should be said that Microsoft has recently reduced its work on cloud services. The company has stated that Cloud Gaming will support all games by the end of 2022; however, this has not happened. It was also revealed that a special subscription to the cloud service may be coming. Nothing happened either.
So it is not possible to say anything about PC games that are moving to the cloud at the moment. There is no official statement yet. We will wait and see if Microsoft will make such a move. However, if this happens, it is possible to say that the service will be a competitor to NVIDIA’s GeForce Now service.Microsoft plans to bring PC Games to Xbox’s Cloud Service
