In a bid to further enhance Xbox's case for buying Activision Blizzard, Microsoft has confirmed another 10-year agreement has been put into place following similar deals with Nintendo and Nvidia.
This time around, the deal focuses on another cloud gaming platform in the form of 'Boosteroid'. Boosteroid is a Ukraine-based cloud gaming service that currently serves more than four million users worldwide, according to a new press release from Microsoft.
Tucked into the post is a comment from Xbox boss Phil Spencer on what this deal means for the future of Microsoft's cloud gaming plans:
"We believe in the power of games to bring people together. That’s why Xbox is committed to give everyone more ways to play their favorite games, across devices..."
"Bringing Xbox PC games to Boosteroid members, including Activision Blizzard titles such as ‘Call of Duty’ once the deal closes, is yet another step in realizing that vision."
As hinted within Phil's statement, this agreement is focused on ActiBlizz and their games once the deal is done, with the Head of Xbox also bringing up the publisher in an accompanying tweet.
In addition to Ukraine, Boosteroid also serves players in the US, UK, and countries across the EU at present, with games frequently being added to the platform's library. A library that — should this deal go through — will soon be bolstered by Xbox and Activision Blizzard titles.
