Microsoft Has No Plans To Launch Xbox Live SDK On The Nintendo Switch

Last week Microsoft brought its Xbox Live service to iOS and Android devices. This meant that developers who wanted to integrate Xbox Live into their iOS and Android games would be able to. There were rumors that this could be the start of something bigger and that it might even make its way onto the Nintendo Switch.

However it seems that will not be the case. According to journalist Russell Holly who attended Microsoft’s presentation at GDC 2019, Microsoft will not be bringing its Xbox Live SDK to the Nintendo Switch. If you’re a bit confused, we get where you’re coming from. Microsoft had recently announced that popular indie game Cuphead, which was previously exclusive to the console, would be coming to the Switch with Xbox Live in tow.

This comes in the form of a new SDK that developers can use to integrate Xbox Live functionality into their games. What this means is that gamers can expect to see more games take advantage of this for features such as crossplay and Xbox Live Achievements, especially if you are primarily an Xbox gamer and would prefer having it all in one place.

Speaking to The Verge, Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft’s gaming cloud chief said, “We believe so strongly in community, and Xbox Live really being at the heart of our gaming community. If you watch what we’ve done, especially with Minecraft, over the past few years we’ve taken Xbox Live to as many platforms as Minecraft is on as possible. Really uniting all those communities together with a consistent singular experience for those gamers.”
