Microsoft reportedly wants to bring Xbox Live to Android and iOS, take on Google Play Games and Apple’s ...

Microsoft is reportedly looking to port Xbox Live to Android and iOS, bringing its many functions to the mobile games that run on Google’s and Apple’s mobile operating systems. A recent Microsoft job posting notes ” We will create a modern framework that is open source, light-weight, extensible and scalable across various platforms including Windows Store, Windows Phone, iOS and Android.”

While the job posting in question doesn’t mention Xbox Live, The Verge cites its own sources and says “Microsoft will position Xbox Live as an alternative for players to use to earn achievements, find friends, and possibly cross-platform gaming.” It makes sense that Microsoft wants Xbox Live to run on multiple platforms so it can woo developers to bring their games to its service, whether they run on Windows, Windows Phone, Android, or iOS.
