Microsoft has agreed to a 10-year partnership with Japan-based cloud gaming technology company Ubitus to stream Xbox PC games as well as Activision Blizzard titles on the latter’s platform.

The streaming of the video games on the Ubitus platform will be after the completion of the previously announced Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

In a tweet, the Japanese cloud gaming technology company stated: “We’re honored to establish a 10-year partnership with Microsoft for players to stream Xbox PC Games and Activision Blizzard titles pending the acquisition.

“This collaboration enhances our library with high profile game IPs, it also expands our library size to over 1,000 titles.”

Founded in 2013, Ubitus supports game developers to move their games to the cloud and telecom companies to develop their brand-new cloud game services.

Besides, the company offers technology to assist distribution of interactive or augmented reality (AR) driven rich media contents globally.

Microsoft’s gaming partnership with Ubitus comes after a day the technology major announced another 10-year gaming deal with cloud gaming company Boosteroid.

Through the partnerships, Microsoft expects Call of Duty and other popular franchises to surpass over 150 million additional players.

Besides, the technology company aims to make games developed by Xbox Game Studios, Bethesda, and Activision Blizzard available on multiple cloud gaming services and subscriptions.

In February 2023, the company also agreed to a 10-year partnership with American technology company Nvidia to make Xbox PC games available on the latter’s GeForce NOW cloud gaming service.

Through the agreement, the gamers have been enabled to stream Xbox PC titles including Minecraft from Nvidia’s cloud gaming service platform to PCs, macOS, Chromebooks, smartphones, and other devices.
