It seems that Microsoft has pushed a rather large update to its Project xCloud preview today, adding 15 new games to the service. Prior to this addition, there were already around 50 games available through the Project xCloud preview, so the addition of 15 is a significant one. There are some well-known names among the list of additions, including one of Google Stadia’s marquee titles.
Yes, that means Destiny 2 has been added to the Project xCloud preview. Destiny 2 will be joined by other heavy hitters such as Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Sid Meier’s Civilization VI, and Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut. There are also a few Telltale-made games joining the lineup today, and you can see all of the additions in the list below.
• Halo: The Master Chief Collection
• Destiny 2
• Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
• Batman: The Telltale Series – The Complete Season
• Batman: The Enemy Within – The Complete Season
• The Wolf Among Us
• Wasteland 2: Director’s Cut
• The Surge
• Portal Knights
• GoNNER – Blueberry Edition
• Kingdom Two Crowns
• Tracks – The Train Set Game
• Train Sim World 2019
Strangely, it doesn’t seem that Microsoft has announced these new Project xCloud games in any official capacity. Instead, Windows Central spotted them, and at the time of this writing, the new games aren’t even listed on the Project xCloud website yet.
In any case, Microsoft has been steadily building out Project xCloud since launching this preview back in October. For now, the preview is limited only to Android devices (and is still an invite-only affair), but at some point this year, Microsoft plans to bring the preview to Windows 10. We’ll also see the preview eventually support a wider variety of controllers, but that’s probably less of a priority for Microsoft than adding new platforms is.
At this point, it’s still unclear when Microsoft plans to launch Project xCloud, but the hope is that we’ll hear more about a release date at some point this year. Perhaps we’ll get one during Microsoft’s E3 2020 press conference? We’ll keep our fingers crossed, but for now, those of you with access to the preview have some new games to check out.
