Xbox Game Pass

At the start of this month, it was discovered Microsoft would be discussing its plans to make Xbox Live compatible with mobile platforms and the Nintendo Switch at this year's Game Developers Conference.

Now, in today's update, Direct-Feed Games – known for its strong track record when it comes to rumours – apparently has some big news to share. After contacting several sources, it can allegedly confirm Microsoft and Nintendo are working together, with more details about this partnership expected to be revealed later on in 2019.

The source of this rumour goes onto explain how one of the deals will see Microsoft publish "more software" on the Switch. In addition to this, it will publish at least "one high profile Xbox One indie exclusive" on the hybrid platform. This game is believed to be the 2015 release, Ori and the Blind Forest.

Microsoft is also expected to release an Xbox App on the system, which would provide access to its Game Pass subscription service and support Project xCloud. The cloud feature would allow the Switch to run more powerful games via streaming technology.
