Project xCloud To Reportedly Get Xbox Series X Server Upgrade In 2021

According to a new report, the servers for Microsoft's cloud streaming service Project xCloud will be upgraded to Xbox Series X hardware in 2021. We're learning this courtesy of The Verge editor Tom Warren, who explained that the cloud service will still be powered by Xbox One S blades at the launch of the new system:

The report also mentions that the service is still on track for a full launch on Android later this year, and that Microsoft is experimenting with bringing PC games to Project xCloud as well. As already revealed by Xbox Head Phil Spencer back in April, Project xCloud will also be a part of Xbox Game Pass "at some point in 2020."

Furthermore, Microsoft is apparently testing an internal xCloud client for PC. It reportedly doesn't support actual PC games, but instead allows users to play Xbox One games via the cloud through their computer. Nothing has been mentioned about this officially, so we don't know when it'll be released.

Looking forward to the full launch of Project xCloud? Let us know your thoughts below.
