Microsoft May Bring Xbox and PC Games to Android
Microsoft will offer the console and computer games it makes on the iPhone and other smartphone platforms, including Android. This will be done through a partnership with the Japanese smartphone game maker Klab Inc, according to Reuters.
The licensing deal will bring the titles to the handsets and tablets with Android and one of the names mentioned is “Age of Empires”. This game will be released as a free to play game worldwide on smartphones by the end of the year. It’s all about the porting, but we shouldn’t rush to think about Halo on Galaxy Note III yet, since Microsoft didn’t announce any other title.
Well, at least the original Xbox titles may make their way to the iPad Retina for example, since I guess that the hardware is good enough to run them. Back in 2005 there was a licensing deal for the company In-Fusio to make Halo mobile games, but in the end that didn’t happen. In the meantime we’re waiting for Halo Spartan Assault on Windows Phone and Windows 8.
