Xbox Live is one of the largest, most engaged gaming communities on the planet with decades of experience providing managed game services to developers that save you time and unlock all of the social and engagement features that players love.
Now Xbox Live is about to get MUCH bigger. Xbox Live is expanding from 400M gaming devices and a reach to over 68M active players to over 2B devices with the release of our new cross-platform XDK.
Get a first look at the SDK to enable game developers to connect players between iOS, Android, and Switch in addition to Xbox and any game in the Microsoft Store on Windows PCs.
This step will allow Microsoft to expand its reach in the smartphone gaming market, which has boomed in the last years thanks to games like Fortnite. Even Sony announced its interest in expanding its market on mobile devices in early 2016, by creating a new company called “ForwardWorks” which will specifically focus on smartphone gaming.
