The platform holder opened registration for the xCloud preview version in late September.
Kareem Choudhry, corporate VP of cloud gaming at Microsoft, said recently: “Public preview is a critical phase in our multi-year ambition to deliver game streaming globally at the scale and quality of experience that the gaming community deserves and expects.
“It’s time to put Project xCloud to the test in a broader capacity, with a range of gamers, devices, network environments and real-world use-case scenarios, and this is where you come in.”
A Microsoft patent application uncovered in July suggests the company may be developing Xbox controllers designed to support mobile gaming.
