Microsoft Announces Project xCloud for Developers

Published

Microsoft has announced a new xCloud-based technology that will enable developers to test their games without having to have access to physical Xbox developer kits, allowing them to create and test games remotely.

It’s a good response to current times, with a number of people now forced to work at home due to COVID-19 and associated Stay-at-Home orders and quarantine practices.

“By giving developers access to our PC Content Test App (PC CTA) they can remotely connect to their Xbox Development Kits from their PC, allowing them to test, play and iterate as if they were in the office. It also prevents them from having to download daily builds to local hardware in the home, which can often take hours,” Microsoft stated.

Infinity Ward, Ninja Theory, Playground Games, Rare, Turn 10, Undead Labs and Eidos Montreal are among some of the major studios that have been using this technology since it went live.

“Using the PC Content Test app enables us to bring back our old workflows wholesale. Installs to kits on-site are now minutes rather than the hours it takes to download remotely, and we have the flexibility to react when something goes wrong,” Rare’s technical director Sean Davies said.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer says that Xbox Game Pass will not be making it’s way to competing consoles, or consoles outside of the Microsoft brand.

Spencer says that competitive platforms aren’t “really interested” in having the “full Xbox experience on their hardware”, during  an interview with Game Star.

“The thing about other gaming console platforms is we’re not able to bring a full Xbox experience on those platforms,” Spencer said (h/t TweakTown).

“In places where we have, like mobile phones like we’re doing now with xCloud coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate” Spencer continued.

“What we’ve done with PC in bringing our full Xbox experience there. Because we know when somebody is playing one of our Xbox games there is an expectation that “I’ve got my Xbox LIVE community, I have my achievements, Game Pass is an option for me, my first-party library is completely there”.

“The other competitive platforms aren’t really that interested in having a full Xbox experience on their hardware. But for us, we want to be where gamers want to be and that’s the path that we’re on.”
