It seems that things are progressing well on the side of Xbox, which is preparing to unveil its long-awaited cloud gaming stick.

For more than a year now, gamers around the world have been waiting for significant changes from Microsoft in terms of cloud gaming. So we are not talking here about the Xbox Cloud Gaming service, which has been accumulating its advantages for many months, but rather about the cloud gaming stick that the firm has been promising us for a long time. This one is apparently still on the way, and according to some sources, should arrive within the next 12 months.

It is journalists Jeff Grubb (VentureBeat) and Ton Warren (The Verge) who confirm the news and who are already predicting that change is on the way. As a reminder, Microsoft had presented a few months ago a “streaming stick” project similar to that of Amazon, but which would allow players to enjoy cloud gaming on their television, even without a console. The firm had also spoken of an application for smart TV mainly targeting Samsung televisions.

Liz Hamren, head of experience and gaming platforms at Microsoft, said at the time:

“We are working with TV manufacturers around the world to bring the Game Pass experience directly into Internet-connected TVs. NOTWe also develop standalone streaming devices that you can plug into a TV or monitor. So if you have a good internet connection, you can stream your Xbox experience.”

According to journalists, Microsoft’s approach is part of a project called “Xbox Everywhere” which has already begun, with the integration of Fortnite into Xbox Cloud Gaming. The free-to-play battle royale is now available for free via the Xbox cloud, even to anyone who isn’t a subscriber. This initiative allows the firm to establish itself in many homes and prepare for the big changes to come.

See you in a few months to find out more about it. Microsoft may talk about it during its Xbox and Bethesda showcase scheduled for June 12 at 7 p.m.
