In a blog post made yesterday, Microsoft told us more about Project xCloud: an ambitious undertaking that is purported to make Xbox One’s extensive library of games playable across console, PC, and mobile devices.

In-house testing of Project xCloud is currently ongoing, and Microsoft states this testing is occurring on phones and tablets paired with Xbox Wireless Controllers as well as using touch inputs. The company mentions that they are “developing a new, game-specific touch input overlay” to enhance the experience for gamers that prefer to play on mobile devices without controllers.

Microsoft’s stated goal is to provide “a quality experience for all gamers on all devices that’s consistent with the speed and high-fidelity gamers experience and expect on their PCs and consoles.”

The company addresses the myriad of challenges that come with offering this “high-quality experience” globally, and they indicate that their worldwide network of datacenters is just what is needed to conquer issues like “low-latency video streaming remotely.”

Microsoft has indicated that completion of Project xCloud is a “multi-year journey,” and they plan to begin public trials in 2019.
