Samsung and Xbox Team Up for Cloud Gaming; Announced Forza Street for Galaxy Devices

 
Is this the future of project xCloud?
 
Samsung on Tuesday revealed its new flagship phone, the Galaxy S20 as well as their next folding device Galaxy Z Flip. The Korean company also talked about the partnership with Google, Netflix, and on the gaming front, Microsoft.
 
Samsung's director of strategy, David Park said on stage that the company is working with Xbox on a "premium cloud-based game streaming experience." Park didn't reveal any other details about the project. But he indicated that more will be revealed in the future.
 
Right now Microsoft is reviewing its own streaming service Project xCloud. The cloud streaming service is supposed to tie-in with Microsoft's upcoming next-gen console, the Xbox series X that will release in 2020.
 
Samsung didn't want to comment and reveal more about the partnership. Microsoft said they are looking forward to sharing more about the service in the near future.
 
Cnet.com reports, "We believe players around the world should have access to great, high-quality games on the device of their choice," a Microsoft spokesperson said via email Tuesday. "Working with partners like Samsung is an important step in our Project xCloud journey and will help make game streaming more accessible for gamers. We look forward to sharing more later this year."
 
Along with the partnership announcement, Park revealed that Forza Street will come to Galaxy devices soon. The game was released last year for Windows computers.
