At the moment Xbox Cloud Gaming only supports controllers and touchscreen controls on mobile devices.
Microsoft Flight Simulator arrives on Xbox Cloud Gaming
But during a recent developer Q&A spotted by Windows Central, Microsoft Flight Simulator head Jorg Neumann said platform-level support for mouse and keyboard controls for Xbox Cloud Gaming is currently in development.
“The next step for us is mouse [and] keyboard,” he said. “This is a platform-level support, so it has nothing to do with us. Obviously, mouse and keyboard works for our sim.
“So, the platform team is working on this. I know I can’t give a date because it’s the platform team. I don’t know their dates, but it’s coming, and we are also talking about making touch [controls] work”
Microsoft Flight Simulator was made available via Xbox Cloud Gaming last week as one of March’s new Xbox Game Pass titles.
This month’s additions to the subscription service also include Guardians of the Galaxy, which will be added to Xbox Game Pass for cloud, console and PC on March 10.
