Since February, there have been a number of rumors that Microsoft would bring its Xbox apps, subscription services and video games to Nintendo Switch.
While the technology giant has already been quite busy this week with the revelation of Halo Master Chief Collection for PC and its Project xCloud streaming service, the new cross-platform mobile development kit is now announced, Microsoft Game Stack.
As you can see above, this new SDK will allow developers to implement Xbox Live, Azure PlayFab, DirectX, Mixer and more on Android and iOS devices. The Microsoft Game Stack Web page also refers to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 (see below), but there are no "specific announcements" to share right now, according to Microsoft Gaming Chief Cloud Kareem Choudhry:
"Our We really want to bring together the 2 billion players in the world and we're big fans of our Xbox Live community, but we don't have specific Switch related ads today. If you've looked at us in recent years, we've taken a very inclusive approach. Phil [Spencer] has been very active on issues such as crossplay, cross progression and the union of player networks, and we are willing to work with the industry as much as possible.
