- Xbox Live services to get cross-platform support.
- This will be enabled via a new SDK that will be announced next month.
Xbox will soon be releasing a new Software Development Kit (SDK) that will enable game developers to merge Xbox Live with any game title that runs on PC, Xbox, iOS, Android, and Nintendo Switch. First spotted by Windows Central, a peek into the upcoming Game Developer Conference session, which will be held from March 18-22, reveals that Microsoft will announce its cross-platform SDK for Xbox Live in March. This means that gamers with Xbox Live will now be able to retrieve their details like friends list, clubs, gaming achievement history, and more. As per the company, this will “break down barriers for developers that want their communities to mingle more freely across platforms. Combined with PlayFab gaming services, this means less work for game developers and more time to focus on making games fun.”
