Microsoft to Bring its Xbox and PC Games to iPhone and Android (UPDATED)

on June 24, 2013 9:27 PM

Looks like Microsoft is working to spread its games to other platforms, at least for the Japanese market, as the company announced today a deal with the Japanese smartphone game maker Klab Inc. to publish some of its Xbox and PC games on iOS and Android platforms.

The first of the games included in the deal is Age of Empires, that will be available as a free to play offer at the end of the year. More titles will follow afterwards. It’s not yet known if the service will be made available worldwide or will be limited to Japan.

Update: The official press release just sent by Klab actually mentions that the service will be offered worldwide, starting with English speaking countries.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
