Xbox Series X upgrades for Project xCloud likely coming in 2021

This seemingly confirms a statement Microsoft gave to Stevivor back in November 2019.

Microsoft will upgrade its Project xCloud servers with blades based off the Xbox Series X in 2021, The Verge reports.

Moreover, the outlet reports that Microsoft is also trialling powerful PC blades in order to stream PC-only titles over Project xCloud as well. The news comes alongside a report that Microsoft is preparing to launch a full release of the streaming application on Android phones next year while iOS complications in the form of App Store guidelines are providing to be a hurdle.

The report affirms a statement from Microsoft to Stevivor last year at X019 in London. There, Microsoft’s Kareem Choudhry said that “We designed [Xbox Series X] with the cloud in mind as well, and just as you’re going to see our console product family evolve with that next generation, the cloud is going to evolve along with it.

We’ll have more on Project xCloud as it becomes available.
