In the video below, Direct-Feed claims: "Microsoft will further their ambitions of expanding their reach to consumers beyond the Xbox ecosystem, by introducing an Xbox app for the Nintendo Switch, that will allow use of Games Pass and support Project xCloud".
That's the rumour doing the rounds via the often on-point Direct-Feed Games. they suggest that several sources have indicated that there's an even bigger partnership to come this year, that'll see Microsoft publishing more of its software on the Switch. Back at E3 2018, Spencer similarly said a future Microsoft "game streaming network" would bring "console quality gaming on any device". All games in the Xbox Game Pass catalog will be playable on the hybrid console thanks to the ProjectXCloudcloud gaming platform.
This is not a totally outrageous statement, considering the details Microsoft unveiled on Project xCloud late a year ago. Microsoft's weak spot is still their first party games but if they can compensate for that with Nintendo's then, well... they really will be a force to be reckoned with. Are Microsoft and Nintendo about to team up?
Once again, these are just rumors. So, if you're curious whether Anthem will make the jump to the Nintendo Switch, we've got the answers you might be seeking.
It is noted that studios such as Ninja Theory and Obsidian Entertainment, which are owned by Microsoft, already publish their own games on Switch and other platforms themselves. As for the rumor itself, I won't speak anymore on the plausibility.
This all sounds so insane to be true but keeping previous announcements of Microsoft in mind, it can be all possible but personally, I think that it's not going to happen anytime soon. Users have been able to play the game for a few days now if they preordered one of the more expensive packages, or if they have an EA Access or Origin Premiere account. GamePass allows for a good solution to this problem, and it's all the better if it's available on more consoles.
