Microsoft has signed a 10-year deal with Taiwan-based cloud gaming provider Ubitus as it aims to “give more players more choices.”  

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer announced the partnership via Twitter. 

Giving customers more choice is core to what we do. Thrilled to partner with @UbitusKK to give gamers yet another option for how they play Xbox PC games, added Microsoft’s corporate VP Sarah Bond in a tweet. 

The tech giant also recently signed a 10-year deal with Ukraine-based cloud gaming service Boosteroid in an effort to bring more Xbox and PC games to streaming providers. According to a Microsoft press release, this will enable Activision Blizzard PC games to be streamed by Boosteroid customers after Microsoft concludes its acquisition.  

“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,” Spencer explained. 

Additionally, Microsoft signed 10-year deals with Nintendo and GeForce Now in hopes of making Activision Blizzard games playable across all platforms.
