The gaming industry is currently under a revolution or we might just say evolution. With major tech companies like Google, Microsoft and Sony slowly moving into cloud gaming, cloud gaming is going to be the new trend pretty soon. We have Google, Sony, Microsoft all lined up with their nex-gen consoles, thereby, taking cloud gaming to a whole new level. Microsoft’s xCloud is going to be major player in the cloud gaming market as it is all set to go head-to-head with Sony’s PlayStation Now service and Google’s Stadia cloud streaming service. However, what’s really interesting is that Microsoft is partnering up with SK Telecom to deliver its xCloud game streaming service over 5G in South Korea next month.

This comes as a result of an MOU signed between both the companies back in May where they agreed upon working on techs related to 5G, artificial intelligence, and the cloud services.

“We expect to take customers’ mobile gaming experience to the next level by combining SK Telecom’s 5G competitiveness and Microsoft’s strength in cloud and gaming,” said SK Telecom vice president and head of MNO Ryu Young-sang

Microsoft executive vice president of gaming Phil Spencer added: “Microsoft’s approach to game streaming combines nearly 40 years of gaming experience with investments and resources from Azure, Microsoft Research, and other business groups across the company, allowing us to reach gamers around the world.”

“Partnerships, like the one we announced with SK Telecom today, are critical to continuing that trajectory and moving the gaming industry forward, starting with the incredibly engaged gamers and game studios in South Korea.”

Microsoft’s Project xCloud game streaming service as we all must be familiar with, allows gamers to stream Xbox games to their smartphones. In an announcement, both the companies jointly announced that Project xCloud will start a public preview in South Korea from October 2019 for selected SK Telecom’s 5G/LTE subscribers and in return, SK Telecom will help Microsoft strengthen its mobile services.
