Last week came with some exciting news on what concerns Microsoft’s plans. As we find out from Kareem Choudry, the Gaming Cloud Chief for the tech giant, the company has no projects related to Xbox Live and Switch. But what’s more intriguing is that, despite this announcement, the company still brought up the subject at the Game Developers Conference 2019, which is taking place in San Francisco as you’re reading this.
Russel Holly, who works as a journalist for Windows Central, tweeted that Microsoft currently has no plans to release an Xbox Live SDK for Switch. This has made lots of fans sad. However, the silver lining is that Holly informed Nintendo fans to watch out for some more Xbox Live-enabled games. What gives us hope is the Cuphead game that opened up the way for these hopes in the future.
But Do People Want More Games?
Of course, people want more games! And Microsoft fans have been expressing their wishes for quite a while now. In reaction to the tweet posted by Holly, some fans talked about their need for physical content. More than one person has expressed their wish for Microsoft and Nintendo to build together something even better than Stadia. Can this be an anticipation of the two giants’ plans? We’ll have to wait and see.
Meanwhile, gamers worldwide said they’d like to see Rare Replay coming to Switch soon. Other titles they mentioned were Game Pass, Ori, Battletoads or a Goldeneye remaster. Some said they’d love to see the Yacht Club Games, plus a Forza game. It remains to be seen whether Microsoft will choose one of the games suggested by fans for their future developments. Until then, we’ll have to manage with what we got and enjoy the games they have already made available, such as Cuphead. What do you think about it? Let us know in the comments if you have some other favorite games you’d like to see!
