We've been treated to a barrage of news this week, including next-gen game announcements and a ton of Xbox Game Pass reveals - but we're not stopping there. Buried within a recent post, Xbox has confirmed it will continue to support the Xbox One via Cloud Gaming, allowing next-gen experiences to be played on a last gen system.
The news comes from Xbox Wire, which reassures Xbox One owners that the company hasn't forgotten about them. In fact, they're going as far as working to bring games such as Microsoft Flight Simulator to the console through the means of cloud gaming - the same way many mobile users have been diving into their favourite titles.
For the millions of people who play on Xbox One consoles today, we are looking forward to sharing more about how we will bring many of these next-gen games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, to your console through Xbox Cloud Gaming, just like we do with mobile devices, tablets, and browsers.
This, in theory, could mean that Xbox One users will never be locked out of any major upcoming exclusives - provided they have the internet connection to support Xbox Cloud Gaming. It's clearly a big focus for the company to not dismiss any of its player base and continue to deliver "many" of these big games to everyone.
With the Xbox Series X|S shortages continuing - probably for some time considering the global pandemic - this could prove to be an excellent means of accessibility, especially if you weren't planning to get an Xbox Series console just yet.
