Project xCloud is in an advanced test phase, and many members of the USA company are testing the platform and infrastructure that will support the ambitious project based on cloud gaming.

Microsoft's Kareem Choudhry, head of Cloud Gaming, also stated that game developers are already able to test their games directly on xCloud without having to port their games to a new platform. This follows an earlier employee take-home program that served as the first real-world test. In addition, development companies like Paradox Interactive and Capcom have had the privilege of trying xCloud preview, which we will mention will be launched in public beta during 2019.

Microsoft also says that Project xCloud has the technical capability of streaming every game that's playable of Xbox One - around 3,500 games across three generations of Xbox consoles - without any changes needed on the part of developers. In some examples provided by Microsoft, the new developer tools allow creators to make multiplayer matches in the cloud more seamless by moving all connections to the same server and enables games to scale font size depending on the screen you're using.

Getting developer support for xCloud will be crucial for Microsoft. We've already deployed our custom Project xCloud blades to data centers across thirteen Azure regions with an initial emphasis on proximity to key game development centers in North America, Asia, and Europe.

Apparently, Capcom and Paradox are now testing their games on xCloud in the buildup to public trials later this year. Microsoft will leverage its massive Azure cloud infrastructure as the backbone of Project xCloud, a distinct advantage that even Sony can't ignore. However, Microsoft is working with developers to make sure that games that are now in development and future titles will be fully optimized to take full advantage of the streaming platform.
