It looks like Xbox LIVE mobile gaming might not be exclusive to Windows Phone devices in the future. While Microsoft hasn’t officially announced any plans to bring its games over to iOS and Android devices, a recent job posting on the Microsoft Careers website seems to point at that direction.
According to the job posting, Microsoft is looking for a software development engineer to work with the Xbox LIVE team “to bring the latest and greatest gaming and entertainment experience to mobile platforms including Windows Phone, iOS and other mobile platforms… Experience of Windows Phone, iOS or Android development is a big plus.”
Now for all we know, Microsoft could just be looking for developers to bring the My Xbox LIVE app to Android and work on the iOS version but it seems quite unlikely from the job description. If Microsoft does bring its Xbox LIVE games to other platforms, it would increase its popularity but it would also get rid of one of Windows Phone’s selling points. What do you think? Should Microsoft bring Xbox LIVE to other platforms?
