There have been rumors flying around for weeks now about Microsoft teaming up wtih Nintendo for something big. Talk of widespread Xbox Live support on Switch and Game Pass swirled about, but with today's announcement of Xbox Live for iOS/Android games, some wind has been taken out of the rumor sails. That said, Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft’s gaming cloud chief, did offer up the following statement.
“Our goal is to really unite the 2 billion gamers of the world and we’re big fans of our Xbox Live community, but we don’t have any specific announcements as it relates to Switch today. If you’ve watched us for the past few years, we’ve taken a very inclusive approach. Phil [Spencer] has been very proactive on issues like crossplay, cross-progression, and uniting gamer networks, and we’re willing to partner with the industry as much as we possibly can.”
