“It has been said too many times, but it’s true we are living in unprecedented times due to the global COVID-19 pandemic,” Gluckstein wrote. “Here at Xbox, we look to our products to bring joy and connection at all times and particularly during these weeks and months when we’re asked to stay at home. We know we’re in this together and the support we can provide one another is of critical importance now more than ever.”
“With that in mind, we continue to evaluate the COVID-19 situation and will begin rolling out the Project xCloud preview across 11 Western European countries when we are confident it is sensible to do so. We will take a measured approach to help conserve internet access, beginning the preview in each market with a limited number of people and adding more participants over time.”
The upcoming Project xCloud preview countries are as follows:
The new preview countries will only be able to access the Android version of xCloud, not the limited iOS version.
