[Rumor] Cuphead playable on Switch thanks to Xbox Game Pass

According to these recent rumors, the Switch version of Xbox Game Pass would be powered by Microsoft's own Project xCloud service it announced previous year and would grant Game Pass subscribers the ability to stream and play Xbox games on their Switch across an internet connection.

Some of these people making these claims are Direct-Feed Games, the above video mentions the fact that Microsoft have been very vocal about their ambition to bring the Xbox Games Pass to as many platforms. This claim is backed up by additional sources talking to Game Informer. Not only would it be general ports, but the entire Xbox Game Pass library would also be available to stream. So support for Project xCloud, Microsoft's grand vision for a streaming platform, may be the most likely part of the whole thing. Bu leveraging Microsoft's more global infrastructure for that streaming, they can position the Switch as the ultimate handheld.

These are the extent of the rumors, and while it might appear unlikely, the video states that Microsoft has a great interest in expanding their service.


Once again, these are just rumors. Sales of the Switch are leaving the Xbox One (X) in the dust; and with another Xbox console iteration (or two) on the horizon, it makes sense to push a popular service rather than a fading system.

"Get a first look at the SDK to enable game developers to connect players between iOS, Android, and Switch in addition to Xbox and any game in the Microsoft Store on Windows PCs.", the not-so-subtle teaser read. As for the rumor itself, I won't speak anymore on the plausibility.

This all sounds so insane to be true but keeping previous announcements of Microsoft in mind, it can be all possible but personally, I think that it's not going to happen anytime soon. We might not be able to play this game on our smartphones.


What do you think of this possibility?

If true, that landmark partnership would, in theory, allow Switch owners to download or stream major Xbox exclusives like Halo, Gears of War and Forza.
