Microsoft has signed a new 10-year contract with a cloud gaming company. This time, it’s with Ubitus, a Tokyo, Japan-based provider.
On Twitter, Xbox’s Phil Spencer said –
“Microsoft and Ubitus, a leading cloud gaming provider, have signed a 10-year partnership to stream Xbox PC Games as well as Activision Blizzard titles after the acquisition closes. Our commitment is to give more players, more choice.”
Microsoft corporate VP Sarah Bond added –
“Giving customers more choice is core to what we do. Thrilled to partner with Ubitus to give gamers yet another option for how they play Xbox PC games.”
Ubitus is best known for making cloud versions of games like The Forgotten City, Control, A Plague Tale: Requiem, and Resident Evil Village with many different publishers.

This week, Microsoft announced that it had signed a 10-year deal with Boosteroid, a cloud gaming service based in Ukraine, to bring Xbox and PC games to more streaming services. If the Activision Blizzard merger with Microsoft goes through, this would include games from that company.
Xbox Works to Appease Regulators
Microsoft is doing everything it can to calm the fears of regulators that the gaming industry isn’t competitive enough. Most recently, Microsoft made 10-year deals with Nintendo and GeForce Now to make more Activision Blizzard games available on other platforms.
But the fight between Microsoft and Sony is still going on. Sony says that the merger would hurt competition irreparably and that the PlayStation versions of Activision Blizzard games could be hacked to make them less good.
