Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will soon be able to stream a selection of Xbox games they personally own to other devices – yes, that means games not in the Xbox Game Pass library will finally be cloud compatible.
Announced on June 9, the new feature doesn’t yet have a release date, but Microsoft aims to have it available by the end of the year. Microsoft said it’ll let you play “select” games you own outside of the Game Pass library, which could mean some are still off the table, but it’s one step closer to a future where all your games are available anytime, anywhere. This also addresses situations where games like Destiny 2, which was playable in the cloud via Game Pass for a while, are removed from the service and therefore removed as a cloud game.
The initiative was announced alongside plans to bring Xbox Game Pass support to 2022 Samsung smart TVs by the end of June. Presumably, this setup will also support games you own through your Xbox account, coming later this year.
The full showcase of Xbox and Bethesda games will take place on June 12 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET. It will feature announcements and news from a wide variety of first-party and third-party studios, and an extended showcase with in-depth dives and interviews will air on June 14.
