Xbox Game Pass Reportedly Heading To Nintendo Switch
New reports are making the rounds that indicate Microsoft and Nintendo are working together behind the scenes on something big. According to these reports, Microsoft will be bringing the popular Xbox Game Pass subscription service to the Nintendo Switch.
Per Direct-Feed Games and their inside sources, Microsoft is preparing for the release of Xbox Game Pass on Nintendo Switch. The subscription service would undoubtedly be a hit on the portable console, especially if Microsoft brings some of their games with it, which brings us to the next point.
In addition to the Xbox Game Pass being available on Switch, Microsoft is reportedly bringing some first-party indie titles along with it. The report from Direct-Feed Games specifically mentions Ori and the Blind Forest, which would surely be a smash hit on the hybrid console. They then go on to say how Microsoft would be using their Project xCloud streaming service to help bring some of the more hardware intensive and graphically demanding titles to Switch.
As it is with all things like this, it is still a rumor, which means it should be taken with a healthy helping of salt. That said, Game Informer has reported that their sources are saying that we could see Xbox Game Pass on Nintendo Switch as early as this year. Again, keep the salt handy, but all things considered, this could very well end up being true.
Of course, if any of this is true, we will just have to wait for Nintendo and Microsoft to officially make an announcement. Until then, keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as we learn more, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
